  1. He is so hot..... But I'm sad, you guys! I've been following him very closely since 1995, before Britney! I LOOOOVE Ricky! He's the "female Britney" is you ask me. I love his voice and his music, but lately... I cannot feel whatever he's putting out, whether it's in Spanish or English. I couldn't put a finger on it until now with this song... I hate the way he's singing lately. He used to have such a beautiful, clear voice, and with quite a lot of range coming from a man, but now he's singing with this sort of "agonizing" feel to it, especially at the end of sentences... It reminds me of the way Katy Perry loves to sing every single song, even if it's the most upbeat pop song, I don't get it ugggh Also, the songs are not the best... Like bish you should distinguish a hit by now?? ....but look at this beauty....
  2. LAW 54 (DOMESTIC VIOLENCE) PROTECTION ORDER ISSUED AGAINST SINGER RICKY MARTIN PUERTO RICO NEWS: The Police of the town of Dorado in Puerto Rico is trying to find singer Ricky Martin after Judge Raiza Cajigas Campbell, of the Court of First Instance issued a protection order against the singer by law 54. According to the person filing the complaint, it is a man who alleges that he had a 7 month relationship with the singer and two months ago they separated, but allegedly the singer does not accept the separation. The complaint also says that this man fears for his life, because Ricky Martin allegedly prowls around his house in a black Range Rover and calls him frequently. Also according to the complaint this man is 20 years old and is the nephew of the singer. https://www.metro.pr/entretenimiento/2022/07/03/equipo-legal-de-ricky-martin-asegura-que-alegaciones-contra-el-artista-son-falsas/?fs=e&s=cl
  3. The King of Latin Pop graces the cover of People's second annual Pride Issue. He speaks about the things going on in his life, his new single dropping on June 10, his married life and his upcoming tour with Enrique Iglesias. He also opened up about an interview he did for Barbara Walter back in 2000. The interview as many may recall where she questioned him about his s***** orientation. The event still haunts Ricky as he states. "Still, rumors persisted about his ***uality. Like a lot of LGBTQ people, an unspoken question — "Are you…?" — hovered in the air all the time, in every interaction. Sometimes anticipated, sometimes inferred, sometimes imagined, sometimes self-interrogated, it was just there — an invisible cinderblock teetering on the edge, ready to fall. Martin lived with the question until he was 29. Then, in 2000, Barbara Walters asked it on national television. This was a year after the radio dominance of "Livin' La Vida Loca" and 10 years before he came out publicly on his website. "You could stop these rumors," Walters implored. "You could say, 'Yes I am gay or no I'm not.'" Martin was visibly stunned. He finally retreated, answering with "I just don't feel like it." He says the moment still haunts him. "When she dropped the question, I felt violated because I was just not ready to come out. I was very afraid." Martin's entire body shifts. He clears his throat and takes a deep breath. "There's a little PTSD with that." What are your thoughts on this guys? I find this story to be very important especially since it is Pride Month. How was your experience growing up LGBTQ? Did you experience things like this?
  4. Per Deadline: Ricky Martin’s former talent manager has issued a stark warning to the Grammy winner and Emmy nominee: pay up or reap the whirlwind. Specifically, in “excess of USD $3,000,000, or according to proof, and unpaid commissions are accruing on an ongoing basis,” reads a complaint filed Wednesday in Los Angeles Superior Court by Rebeeca Drucker against The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story star. “Rebecca Drucker saved Ricky Martin’s career,” says the often taunting 15-page breach of oral contract suit from the “Livin’ la Vida Loca” singer’s manager from 2014-2018 and 2020-2022. “There is just one problem: Martin completely and maliciously refused to pay Rebecca the millions of dollars in commissions that he owes her under their management agreement.” The jury-seeking suit (read it here) adds that “Martin has now threatened Rebecca and is attempting to force her to sign an agreement with a nondisclosure clause to silence Rebecca about the abhorrent behavior by Martin that she has both witnessed and endured.” Unpaid commission dust-ups between reps and their former clients are a virtual sub-genre in the LASC docket. However, in the case of Martin and Drucker, the latter clearly and bl**tly wants the former to know she “will not be silenced.” “For years, she protected Martin from the consequences of his reckless indiscretions. Rebecca did so not only because she was his manager, but also because she thought that Martin was her dear friend,” reads the suit filed by attorneys Joshua M. Rosenberg and Armound Ghoorchian at Venable LLP. Now, with assertions of “a toxic work environment,” “a particularly ugly incident in Dubai involving Martin and his representative José Vega” in 2018, a “personal life …in disarray,” and “Martin’s nonpayment of taxes, and his substance abuse,” Drucker and her lawyers have done little to hide the fact they believe they have the goods on Martin if he doesn’t settle. Firing the cannonball of an unspecified “potentially career-ending allegation in September 2020” across the legal bow, Drucker and her team signal they may not be the only ones with the supposed goods on Martin. Amid the details of broken promises and commissions going from 5% to 10% as part of a short-term reconciliation is a perceived legal threat: Rebecca not only acted to advance Martin’s career but also rendered services to protect it. In one example among many, in or around September 2020, Martin received a letter from a highly-respected litigation attorney in Los Angeles, California. Rebecca stood next to Martin as they read the legal letter for the first time. In that letter, the attorney threatened to publicly file a legal complaint against Martin if he did not pay money to resolve a claim against him alleged by this attorney’s client. After reading the legal letter, Martin collapsed. He expressed his extreme fear to Rebecca that if this threat were carried out, the consequences to Martin would be catastrophic. In response, Rebecca quickly brought in one of the top defense attorneys in Los Angeles who Rebecca had previously retained for a client. Based on Rebecca’s advice, Martin retained this prominent litigator to defend against this devastating claim. Needless to say, the claim ultimately never saw the light of day. Once again, Rebecca saved Martin’s career with the exceptional managerial and advisory services that she provided to him during this ordeal. While the minutiae of the potential scandal waiting to happen for the CAA-repped Martin remains under lock and key, lawyers like Rosenberg and Ghoorchian would be unlikely to make a statement like “career-ending allegations” unless they’ve got something to back it up with. “This complaint only scratches the surface,” is all Rosenberg would say Wednesday outside the filing. “Rebecca looks forward to having her day in court and prosecuting her claims in front of a jury.” Martin’s reps have not responded to requests for comment about Drucker’s complaint or her allegations. If they do, we will update this story. We do know that Martin is being represented in this matter by Lavely & Singer, with Andrew Brettler taking lead on the case. Set to soon release a companion EP to his Latin Grammy-winning EP Pausa, Martin is also on board to star in the upcoming Apple TV+ series Mrs American Pie. The Abe Sylvia-penned and Tate Taylor-helmed comedy also features the likes of Carol Burnett, Kristen Wiig, Josh Lucas, Allison Janney and Leslie Bibb.
  5. 2020 was an unusually rough year that affected all of our lives at a global level. The music industry was one of the most impacted since artists make the most of their revenue out of concerts, which have been shut down due to the ongoing pandemic. However, many artists took this as an opportunity to release their music in more creative ways. Eventually, shooting music videos was allowed if the safety measures were taken, live streamed concerts became the trend, and somehow we were able to have new music throughout the year to make our lives a bit happier in these strange times. I want to make this thread to focus specifically in the work that Latin artists have done, mostly women (and mostly pop) so if you're not familiar with music in Spanish you may discover something interesting, and if you are, then let's appreciate together what 2020 has given us. It's the 90's all over again The Latin divas of the 90's kept us entertained throughout the year, and suddenly it didn't feel like almost three decades have passed since the days when they were the ones dominating the popularity lists. Shakira Shakira celebrated the 25th anniversary of her album Pies Descalzos in 2020, which despite being actually her third studio album, it's usually considered the first one since it's the one that actually catapulted her to stardom. On February 02,her 43rd birthday, she performed along with Jennifer Lopez at the Super Bowl LIV Halftime Show Later in March she released the music video for the collaboration with Anuel AA, Me Gusta, which had been released in January. Before ending the year, she gave us a new viral Tik Tok dance in the music video of Black Eyed Peas' GIRL LIKE ME, as well as showing us her skateboarding abilities. But it wasn't all drought in the months in between, since she released a live performance of Antología from her latest live DVD released last year, and they also uploaded three music videos that were previously unavailable on her official YouTube channel. Thalia Thalia was one of the busiest though. She celebrated 30 years of solo career (she was previously part of the 80's band Timbiriche) and in 2020 she gave us collaborations as if her life depended on it and in May she released Viva Kids Vol. 2, her second album for kids. She started the year releasing Ya Tú Me Conoces in January, featuring Mau y Ricky. Then in February she collaborated with Río Roma on Lo Siento Mucho. It also had a mariachi version. Then in March she was featured on Pabllo Vittar's single Tímida In May is when we got the kids album, and she even released music videos for that one: Mi No Cumpleaños and Mis Tradiciones. She also participated in the mega collaboration organized by Sony Music Latin, a reimagined version of Diego Torres' Color Esperanza. Por Amor al Arte was released in June as the 8th single off her 2018 album Valiente. A lyric video was served for it. That month she also appeared on Leslie Shaw's Estoy Soltera along with Farina. In August she called Myke Towers to appear on her 2:02 minutes long La Luz, a reggaeton-pop club banger. In September, she appeared on another multi collaboration, this time David Guetta's Pa' la Cultura, a charity single released to support the immigrants affected due to COVID-19. Farina's Ten Cuidao featured Thalia in October. In the music video we see her as a queen and a gangster? This videoshoot also gave us her recreation of Britney's Oops!... I Did It Again. Later that month, we got her third collaboration with Farina, this time featuring Sofía Reyes too. TICK TOCK was the name of the song, and they released a Facebook video series to show the journey of releasing this track. In November she released her own rendition of José Feliciano's Christmas classic Feliz Navidad. But it doesn't stop there. Throughout the year she released the HD version of many of the videos she's put out throughout her career, such as Amor a la Mexicana (European Remix), Entre el Mar y una Estrella, Regresa a Mí, Me Pones **** (I Want You), Reencarnación, Cerca de Ti, Mariang Taga Barrio and María la del Barrio. She also released new lyric videos for old songs: Gloria Trevi With more than 30 years of career, she started in January with Grande, a song that features Mónica Naranjo, a Spanish singer that was very important in he 90's music scene. The empowerment anthem was dedicated to those that have suffered of bullying and humiliations throughout their life, especially the LGBTQ community which makes up most of the fanbase of both artists. After the lockdown, she was inspired to create a softer song, Demasiado Frágiles. She had to cancel the last dates of her tour due to the COVID pandemic, but fortunately she recorded a DVD last year of her shows in Mexico City. Diosa de la Noche: En Vivo desde la Arena Ciudad de México was released in August. Fun Fact: she's the biggest Mexican touring force in the world, and was named among the 50 highest-grossing female touring artists of the 21st century, above singers like Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez or Avril Lavigne. In December she participated in a Christmas album Eterna Navidad, along with many other artists. In May she also participated in the Mexican version of Color Esperanza, which was a mashup with Sólo le Pido a Dios, and also featured Fey, our following artist. Fey La Reina de los 90s celebrated 25 years of career this year. Though she only released one single, a cover of a Paul Oakenfold song that had been released in 2016, retitled as The Perfect Song, she participated in several virtual concerts and performances throughout the year. She also broadcasted her 2018 Desnuda Tour as part of the 25th anniversary celebration. She also uploaded to her official channel a couple of missing videos from her 2004 Mecano tribute, La Fuerza del Destino. Lynda Thomas Lynda, who started in the 90s along with Fey and Shakira, but retired in 2002, gave us a couple of gifts too. Since her "comeback" in 2018, she's released a few sparse singles, and this year she released Bien, a jolly, winter-y, not-a-ballad,-not-yet-a-Christmas song, She also recreated her 1999 hit Corazón Perdido, as a more stripped-down, acoustic version. Litzy An unexpected comeback to music was that of Litzy. She started in the kids group Jeans in he 90's, recording only one album with he band before starting a solo career. She released three albums and then focused on acting, having a very successful career. In 2017 she joined the 90's Pop Tour along with Fey and many other representative artists of the decade, but her formal comeback was this year with a live concert Vuelta en U. No Hay Palabras features another 90's icon, Lidia Ávila, member of OV7. She even made a cover of Alicia Keys' No One Paulina Rubio Paulina Rubio was probably the least active, though she did participate in some livestreamed transmissions. In March she appeared as a featured artist on Raymix's Tú y Yo Paulina's plans for 2020 were shut down even before the pandemic. Just like Enrique Iglesias and Ricky Martin were supposed to embark on a joint tour this year (which has since been postponed for next year) Paulina was supposed to collaborate in a tour with Mexican singer Alejandra Guzmán, another diva of the 90's. Everything was ready to be announced and the rumors were stronger than anything. The expectations were high, because the two singers were once rivals in the beginning of the 90's, being involved in a love triangle with fellow Mexican artist Erik Rubín. They even recorded a song together, a cover from the 80's classic Ni Tú Ni Nadie, and the video eventually leaked, though in low quality. They never confirmed the reasons why the tour and single were cancelled, but rumor has it that Paulina's lack of punctuality to the video shoot was enough for Alejandra to quit the project. I'm still waiting for the HD version So this is just the beginning, there's still many other artists we need to talk about, such as Danna Paola, Farina, Aitana, RBD, Reik, Paty Cantú, etc, but I hope other Exhalers help me with that Meanwhile, here's a Spotify playlist with some of the songs I could gather, but we can always make it bigger
  6. Ricky Martin celebrates his 49th birthday on December 24th. He blessed us with some thirst traps (he knew what he was doing here [and it is much appreciated ]). The feet, the shorts, the veins, the tats, the scruff. Sidenote: someone on IG yesterday DMed me asking how much I'd sell pictures of my feet for. I was curious so I asked what their budget was They said $20. Exhale, how much would you sell pictures of your feet for? Asking for a friend who has student loan debt.
  7. On December 11, 1999, UK's Record of the Year took place. Sponsored by Britannia Music, it used to be an award voted by the United Kingdom public, that existed from 1998 until 2012. Divided in two television shows, 10 finalists would perform a song during the first segment, and in the second live segment they would announce the winner, which would be the artist with the most phone calls in favor. Britney Spears performed ...Baby One More Time, but she ended up in third place. The winners of the night were Westlife, performing Flying Without Wings, and in second place, Ronan Keating, who performed When You Say Nothing At All, a Keith Whitley cover. The other performers were S Club 7, Eiffel 65, Jennifer Lopez, Ricky Martin, Lou Bega, Martine McCutcheon and Shania Twain. You can watch Britney's performance here: And the full show here:
  8. Ricky Martin lands in the new issue of Out magazine. He looks stunning, as does his husband, Jwan Yosef, who's also featured in the photoshoot. Aging like a fine wine There's an interview on Out.com to accompany the photos. He opens up about the pandemic and how it affected his mindset. “I went through this mourning process of me letting go of the possibility of ever performing in front of 20,000 people again,” he said. “That’s what they were telling us. For me it was like, I don’t know how to do anything else. I always thought I was going to be able to do this as long as I wanted to— even if I looked ridiculous onstage at 70 years old with a cane, it was my option. But apparently that was no more.” Related:
  9. Last week, Ricky Martin released the music video for Recuerdo, in collaboration with Carla Morrison. It is the third single off his first EP called PAUSA. The rhythm might be a bit different from what most people know him for, but he actually used to sing a lot of ballads on his first records. The chorus of the song translates to: Because in you I could see my reflection Half of my life made verse Every sun, every moon in my sky And in your eyes my livelihood Your light was the illusion, the caress Your words kissing mine It was your scent, potion so divine I can't forget the memory of you The project was originally intended to be a full album, but due to the COVID pandemic, Ricky Martin decided to split the album into two EP's, the first one, PAUSA, released in May, features slower songs and ballads, while the follow up, PLAY, will feature more up-tempo songs, and it's expected to be released in September. Carla Morrison is a Mexican Indie Pop singer who's gained notoriety in the last decade. She actually comes from the same state I'm from and has won several Latin Grammy's. You can listen to the rest of the EP here And here's a playlist of Carla Morrison:
  10. I opened Instagram and Ricky Martin's new post of his freshly-buzzed head immediately popped up. Because, you know, the IG algorithm knows I'd do many things for Ricky. Then I see a comment left by photographer Jeremy Kost. He said: "That haircut!!1 You went 3/4 Britney and it's so hot! 🔥🔥🔥" Ricky responded: "😂 think about it, when are we going to be able to get a proper haircut? Buzzzzz it. 💇🏻‍♂️" Is this shade or an innocent joke?
  11. Ricky Martin is looking mighty fine in the new issue of L'Officiel Hommes. Step on my neck Ricky

It kicks off September 5th in Phoenix. I've actually seen both live and they're phenomenal performers. Ricky's Vegas show was a bit cheesy, but... Both of these men in the same room.
