Ricky Martin found life 'confusing' before coming out as gay

August 12, 2011 - Washington

Ricky Martin has revealed that his life was 'very confusing' before he came out as a gay, as he had to show his false interest in women in order to maintain his pop star persona.

The 'homosexual' singer admitted that maintaining his pop-star image in the 90s was hard work, as he had to pretend he was interested in women for the sake of his female fans.

"I was trying to believe so hard from the bottom of my heart that I was not gay because what I was presenting on stage was not that. So it was very confusing," Contactmusic quoted him as telling VH1's 'Behind the Music'.

Martin is father to three-year-old twins Matteo and Valentino, who were born via a surrogate mother.
