Ricky Martin Loved His Affairs With Women, But He’s Definitely Not Bisexual

Today’s Ricky Martin interview with Oprah was pretty sprawling, but I’m still gonna buy the book! They covered everything from having his heart broken (for a man he was willing to give up his career for) and coming out to his parents to, yes, his romancing the ladies.

So what was with his “passionate love affairs” (Oprah’s words) with women? Were they just a way, asks Oprah, to mask his sexuality? Says Ricky: “I’m sure I’m not the only gay man who felt attraction to women.” But: “I am not bisexual. I am a gay man. For many years I thought I was [bi].”
