Coming out of the closet, Menudo drama, career ups-and-downs…Oh yea,Ricky Martin is more than worthy of his own Behind The Music special. And now, VH1 is planning on profiling the “La Vida Loca” star on its chisme music show next Sunday at 10pm.
Though the network is keeping a tight lip on which parts of Ricky’s life will be profiled, we can throw out a few guesses. For one thing, there’s that whole boy band era in the 1980’s. Many forget that Martin initially shot to fame as a pre-teen in the pop group Menudo. In between the financial rip off rumors and the cancer diagnosis for bandmate Draco Rosa, we’re sure they’ll have plenty to explore.
Add to that, the disappointing sales of his 2005 album Life and his struggles with coming out as a gay man and you’ve got more than an hour’s worth of chisme entertainment. Plus with Ricky participating in it all, we’ll be getting all of the stories straight from the singer himself.
Of course, right now Martin has little to complain about. With two beautiful kids, a loving partner, and a hot new single with Wisin y Yandel, it’s clear that this Behind The Music story has a very happy ending.
