Latin singer Ricky Martin has confessed to bullying gay people in his youth while he was struggling with his own sexuality.
The ‘Nobody Wants To Be Lonely’ singer, who came out in 2010, said he had ‘internalized homophobia’.
Speaking to GQ Australia, the 41-year-old said: ‘I was very angry, very rebellious. I used to look at gay men and think, “I’m not like that, I don’t want to be like that, that’s not me.”
‘I was ashamed.’
Raised in a strict Roman Catholic family in Puerto Rico, Martin said he struggled growing up gay.
