Ricky Martin has posed for a series of hot new photos for GQ Australia.
The superstar singer struck a fashion-friendly pose for the mag’s September/October issue, donning a sexy suit in one pic, and a high collared coat in another.
In excerpts released by the magazine, the singer got candid about his past, including admitting that – after reflection – he feels he bullied other gay people when he was younger, as he tried to suppress who he was.
“I was very angry, very rebellious. I used to look at gay men and think, I’m not like that, I don’t want to be like that, that’s not me. I was ashamed,” Ricky told the magazine. “When you’re told you’re wrong by everyone, from society, from your faith – my self-esteem was crushed. I took my anger out on those around me.”
“I look back now and realize I would bully people who I knew were gay. I had internalized homophobia. To realize that was confronting to me,” he added. “I wanted to get away from that.”
Ricky recently served as a judge on the Australian edition of “The Voice,” and he explained he had fun.
“I felt the outpouring of love, and I could feel the criticism, too, but I loved that. I love the honesty and the truth. People tell it like it is in Australia,” he said.
