Details have finally emerged straight from Ricky Martin’s reps regarding the superstar’s upcoming memoir Me (or Yo, if you read in Spanish), to be published in the U.S. in hardcover on Tuesday, Nov. 2.
As we suspected, the book will explore Martin’s early childhood, his experiences in the renowned boy band Menudo, the challenges of increased fame that came with the Livin’ La Vida Loca phenomenon, his continued growth as a musician, and his unique personal connection with millions of fans around the world. Martin also explores life-changing decisions like coming to terms with his sexuality, (which he did in the public eye earlier this year), becoming a father to twins, and devoting himself to helping children around the world through his own, eponymous foundation.
"Writing this book allowed me to explore the different paths and experiences that have led me to be who I am today,” says Martin. “I’ve had to tie up loose ends that I’d never attempted to tie up before, to work deeply into memories that were already erased from my mind. Allowing myself to do this was not easy, but once I started an incredible spiritual healing began..... and I wanted to share my sense of discovery.”
We can’t wait to read all about it!
