King of sexy selfies Ricky Martin admits to being ‘a little bit obsessed’ with social media

Ricky Martin has nothing to hide anymore.

The openly gay superstar who once dodged questions about his sexuality is now very open with his fans which he proves each day on social media.

Part of his way of connecting is posting selfies that sometimes have him wearing very little clothes.

‘I laugh so much at the reaction of the people; it’s so funny. It really is amazing,’ he tells PrideSource.

What led to his selfie habit?

‘I just want to let people know how normal my life is, and I try to do it with a simple picture – that’s what Instagram is about. … The other day I was laying in the sun and I was like, "Hey everyone, I’m here. I’m in a good place."’

It’s all a part of his being ‘a little bit obsessed with social media.’

‘That’s the first thing I do in the morning. I check out my Twitter, my HeyHey account, Facebook and Instagram, and I read what people have to say and what they need from me as an artist. It’s fun, man.’

He admits this kind of thing is even more fun as an openly gay man.

‘It’s so amazing to know that you have nothing to hide, man. What you see is what you get. And this is me. … Now my life is simple and honest and transparent, and this is me. And that’s what my social media’s about – being yourself.’

Martin released his 10th studio album this week entitled A Quien Quiera Escuchar (To Whomever Wants to Listen).

The singer appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week and talked to Ellen about his sexy selfies.
