Ricky Martin insists he and boyfriend
Carlos Gonzalez are not thinking about marriage.
The 40-year-old Martin discussed
marriage rumors with fashion glossy Details.
“Trust me, everybody is asking me
when I'm going to get married,” Martin said. “People that I
don't know are pushing it. But it's not something that we're talking
The latest rumor of a Martin-Gonzalez
wedding had the couple marrying on January 28 in New York City.
Other rumored locations have been Spain, which recently granted
Martin citizenship, and Argentina.
Martin also appeared to take a swipe at
some of the religious leaders who have condemned him for coming out.
Examples include Cardinal Luis Aponte Martinez of San Juan, Puerto
asked the singer to stop promoting homosexuality, and the Pastor
Wanda Rolon, who said Martin
was leading people to “hell.”
“I don't want to blame the
government,” he said. “I think there's a stolen faith – an
interpretation of what God 'says.' That's your God – I have my
God. It's about civil rights. I'm not telling you what to believe.
I wish people understood that love manifests in different ways.
Allow me to have my life and I won't mess with yours. That's when I
struggle and get angry and punch the table. And then I talk. Martin
Luther King Jr. said, 'Our lives begin to end the day we become
silent about things that matter.'”
And on keeping in shape: “I'm a
father to two toddlers. And lifting them is a workout – this is
biceps, this is triceps. I also try to make love. That helps.”
