hen you think of Ricky Martin, you probably think, "hubba, hubba!" The former boy-band hunk of singing love is no longer just a pretty face and vibrating glutes, he's also a deep and thoughtful author of a new autobiography. The singer is coming out of the dark, as Gloria Estefan might say, not only about his sexuality, but also about his spirituality, and the journey he's been on to overcome his fears.
Martin won't be chatting about his vida loca, but rather autographing his memoir, a book that Deepak Chopra called, a "story of a tortured soul who healed himself by returning to the state of innocence and authenticity." The spiritual leader went so far as to say, "it is only this kind of courage and this kind love that can heal the world. Bravo!" Heavy.
