Miami's most famous Puerto Rican resident (and one of the most famous Puerto Ricans in the world) is poised to make a foray from the entertainment world into the literary realm. It seems that pop phenom Ricky Martin has decided to put to paper his life experiences.
Publisher Celebra, an imprint of Penguin Group that focuses on nonfiction by Latino celebrities like Perez Hilton and the Estefans, has just announced plans to release the singer's memoir on November 2. The book will be simultaneously released in both English and Spanish, with the former titled Me and the latter, Yo.
According to the publisher, the Grammy-winning superstar will open up in this autobiography about everything from his childhood to his start in the Latin boy band Menudo to his rise to solo prominence and leap to the A-list.
The typically private celeb will even get personal, discussing his decision to become a father and coming to terms with his sexuality.

In a release on the title, Martin was quoted, "Writing this book allowed me to explore the different paths and experiences that have led me to be who I am today... and I wanted to share my sense of discovery."
