Ricky Martin - Press Speculation Forced Ricky Martin To Hide Homosexuality

Gay pop star Ricky Martin regrets waiting so long to 'come out' - because the time he spent trying to hide his sexuality could have been better spent.
The Livin' La Vida Loca singer admits the pressure to answer to long-running rumours about his sexuality forced him to dodge questions about his lifestyle until he decided to come clean as a homosexual in a post on his website last year (10).
He tells Britain's The Guardian newspaper, "I hated it when people tried to force me out when I wasn’t ready. It was very painful, and it actually pushed me away from doing so."
But he wishes he hadn't wasted so much time trying to hide his true identity: "If I had spent a quarter of the time that I spent manipulating my sexuality in front of a piano instead, I would be the most gifted piano player of my lifetime."
