Ok so since I've been forced to watch "The Spanish Teacher" episode of Glee for like a million times, I've realized that 40 year old Enrique Martín Morales is super gorgeous! Who woulda' thunk he was 40! Geez Louise & he's sooooo fine! In case someone fell off the planet & doesn't know who Enrique Martín Morales is... it's Ricky Martin! Yep & here's a little bio on this hot Latin churro!!
Born on December 21, 1971 and raised in Puerto Rico, Ricky initiated his singing career in the Latin all boy-band group Menudo. After leaving the group, he moved to New York to study acting. After finishing his studies, he relocated to Mexico where he performed as actor in "Mama ama el Rock", "Alcanzar una Estrella II". In 1991, he began to focus his career as a soloist singer, eventually becoming an international superstar with the release of his self-titled English language album in 1996.
AND A LITTLE TRIVIA: named one of "People" magazine's 50 Most Beautiful People in 1999, speaks 5 languages: Spanish, English, Portuguese, French & Italian, lives in Miami, is the sponsor of three children in India, ranked #42 on VH1's 100 Sexiest Artists, received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for recording on October 16, at 6901 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California, his song, "The Cup of Life" was the official theme of the World Cup in France, for 1998.
[Ricky on Michael Jackson's death] I am very sad. No one will be able to replace him. But I know that the light that he emanated from the stage will live on with all of us who saw him for what he was and always will be - a great teacher, pure musical inspiration.
