If Ricky Martin were writing a book, what would it be about? The life of Thomas Merton? Nah. Itd be about himself, of course. The title of Martins autobiography, Me, is eerily reminiscent of Bill Clintons My Life and Hitlers Mein Kampf. But considering Martins gyrating, low-rise, studded jeans, its safe to assume his story will be very different from those of the other megalomaniac, part-time scribes. The recently out-of-the-closet father of two might not be able to tell you as much about how She Bangs as about Livin La Vida Loca, but really, nobody knows the troubles hes seen until theyve read Me. The book explores Martins earliest memories, his life in Menudo at the wee age of 12, his decision to become a papa, and about finally admitting hes gay. Meet one of the 50 most beautiful folks in the world (according to People magazine) at Books & Books.
