Ricky Martin’s Creativity ‘Exploded’ After He Came Out

Coming out gave Ricky Martin's music a whole new perspective, says his producer.

MartinSays producer Desmond Child to BlackBook:

"I’m really excited about the music, the content, because since he’s come out it’s unleashed his creativity and the scope of what he can sing about and say and do. He’s a formidable person – an activist, a philanthropist, a humanitarian. All of the work he’s put into his charity—it’s all going into the music. His personal life too, and how much his life has been changed by his children. Once he opened that door a floodgate of energy and creativity just really exploded…We really reached a creative fusion of rock and pop and electronic and Latin music – it’s all over the place in a really great way."

The truth will set you free, apparently.

    I’ve always liked Ricky. When younger, he always made an effort to show a positive portrayal of latinos. PLUS he always seems to help others.

    I am so glad he can be free to be himself and show that being true to yourself is very important in being happy in life.

    Well this is shocking: first he comes out, then he writes a book, and now he has a new album coming out.

    Great way to keep yourself relevant, appeal to a large fanbase that was over you, and get a ton of press.
