RICKY MARTIN AND WISIN & YANDEL PERFORM FRIO ON MTV TRES; RECEIVES GLAAD AWARD
Just for the record I am a huge Ricky Martin fan. He looks happier than ever, his body looks edible, and ever since he came out publicly he's oozing a sexual confidence that could wipe out many a man at the Black Party. My only issue with him is why isn't the music matching this newfound confidence? He should be shaking those La Vida Loca hips to some ferosh international dance tunes and giving the kids something to pump to on the dancefloor. Instead he's given us some mediocre mid-tempo spanish songs. Regardless of your musical misstep, I would love to be a fly on the wall (or get a fourgy started) between myself, Ricky, Wisin, and Yandel. Speaking of which, check out his performance with Wisin & Yandel as well as his GLAAD speach in New York City last night below...
