Still shakin' that bon-bon...
For the last 30 years, Ricky Martin has been driving guys and girls crazy all around the world.
He started his celebrity life as a 12-year-old teen heartthrob with boy band Menudo. And then he went solo, eventually becoming the face (and hair and abs) of the late '90s' Latin Explosion crossover fad with English-language megahits like "Livin' La Vida Loca," "Shake Your Bon-Bon," and "She Bangs."
Now Ricky's a proud gay bilingual worldwide pop star with two kids. And he's just finished his 10th studio album, A Quien Quiera Escuchar. And he's coming to Miami too.

A ten-track collection of songs, including single "Adios," that Ricky calls "very romantic, honest and transparent," A Quien Quiera Escuchar (or To Whoever Wants to Listen to the English speakers) was released today.
And naturally, the 43-year-old estrella took the opportunity to also announce the U.S. leg (and one Canadian show) for his ongoing One World Tour.
