I’m starting my own XXX company, MEN Entertainment, and shot a teaser video for my first film, “Late Night Rendezvous” which will be out in Summer 2010.

As much as this shouldn’t be news, it really is! Not many in the black and latino community who are stars in either music, film, etc. usually come out the closet. (i.e. Queen Latifah, P. Diddy, Will Smith, etc.). Personally, I knew he was gay back in the days when he was with the all male latin group “Menudo”. Check out some of their vids and you will see. LOL
Today, on his website, he released a letter to his fans proclaiming he is gay. I’m proud of him though. He is living in his truth which unfortunately many don’t. He might not be as popular as he was back in the late 90’s/early 2000’s but he still has major clout in the international market. And for him to come out, is a big deal for both younger and older men and women of latino descent and hopefully anyone of any race.
Here is his letter:
“A few months ago I decided to write my memoirs, a project I knew was going to bring me closer to an amazing turning point in my life. From the moment I wrote the first phrase I was sure the book was the tool that was going to help me free myself from things I was carrying within me for a long time. Things that were too heavy for me to keep inside. Writing this account of my life, I got very close to my truth. And this is something worth celebrating.
For many years, there has been only one place where I am in touch with my emotions fearlessly and that’s the stage. Being on stage fills my soul in many ways, almost completely. It’s my vice. The music, the lights and the roar of the audience are elements that make me feel capable of anything. This rush of adrenaline is incredibly addictive. I don’t ever want to stop feeling these emotions. But it is serenity that brings me to where I’m at right now. An amazing emotional place of comprehension, reflection and enlightenment. At this moment I’m feeling the same freedom I usually feel only on stage, without a doubt, I need to share.
Many people told me: “Ricky it’s not important”, “it’s not worth it”, “all the years you’ve worked and everything you’ve built will collapse”, “many people in the world are not ready to accept your truth, your reality, your nature”. Because all this advice came from people who I love dearly, I decided to move on with my life not sharing with the world my entire truth. Allowing myself to be seduced by fear and insecurity became a self-fulfilling prophecy of sabotage. Today I take full responsibility for my decisions and my actions.
If someone asked me today, “Ricky, what are you afraid of?” I would answer “the blood that runs through the streets of countries at war…child slavery, terrorism…the cynicism of some people in positions of power, the misinterpretation of faith.” But fear of my truth? Not at all! On the contrary, It fills me with strength and courage. This is just what I need especially now that I am the father of two beautiful boys that are so full of light and who with their outlook teach me new things every day. To keep living as I did up until today would be to indirectly diminish the glow that my kids where born with. Enough is enough. This has to change. This was not supposed to happen 5 or 10 years ago, it is supposed to happen now. Today is my day, this is my time, and this is my moment.
These years in silence and reflection made me stronger and reminded me that acceptance has to come from within and that this kind of truth gives me the power to conquer emotions I didn’t even know existed.
What will happen from now on? It doesn’t matter. I can only focus on what’s happening to me in this moment. The word “happiness” takes on a new meaning for me as of today. It has been a very intense process. Every word that I write in this letter is born out of love, acceptance, detachment and real contentment. Writing this is a solid step towards my inner peace and vital part of my evolution.
I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am.
For those who love to travel to see the “menz”. lol. there’s an event geared specifically for those who are in tip top shape and their admirers. It’s called Body Boyz United and they meet during July 4th weekend.
You can go to their website here
for more information on the group and their event.
Personally, I think it’s just an event for a bunch of insecure, shallow muscle queens to be around each other. But to each his own!
Here is classic blues/rock music from the legendary Janis Joplin.
You may have saw my previous post about porn star Elmo Jackson. He was arrested in Atlanta for check fraud and other charges. He was also wanted in Tennessee and Mississippi. Well he has been convicted and will spend the next 8 years in Mississippi state prison.
What a shame. He was a cute porn star with a juicy ass and, I thought, a great porn career ahead of him. But for some reason, he had to resort to doing check fraud, etc.
Well I’ve never been in jail/prison but I have heard many stories from guys who have and I hear the prisons in the south are notorious for rapes, etc. Boy they going to love his pussy!

Now I must admit as much as I hate seeing our young, and some older, black men walking around with sagging pants, I must admit it’s a guilty pleasure of mine. Especially if he got a phat ass. LOL
But this right here is the reason why sagging is not cool.
I mean…What the fuck? lol
Whether you like it or not, President Obama has signed a historic bill that will reform health care in America. Big kudos for him having the guts to do it!
I’ve had the opportunity to see this play and when I heard it was coming to film, I was elated. That’s until I heard Tyler Perry was going to direct. I’ve NEVER been a fan of his work and for him to direct a movie thats so sensitive in nature? God help us! And I’m not the only one who is afraid of how this will turn out. LOL
Well he revealed his cast last night, during his premiere for his upcoming movie “Why Did I Get Married, Too?
The cast is: Whoopi Goldberg, Phylicia Rashad, Kimberly Elise, Kerry Washington, Macy Gray, Janet Jackson, Jurne Smollett and Mariah Cary.
Now we know Whoopi, Phylicia and Kimberly will turn it out. Janet I think will deliver especially with all that went on in 2009 with Michael’s death. She can dig deep from that. Now the rest, God help us! We shall see.

Check out the photos below of the red carpet of the movie premiere of “Why Did I Get Married, Too”. Tell me Rebbie and Janet look fierce! Good black don’t crack baby!
