Retro Post: Homosexuals. Adoption. Opinions.

Yea, I figured that would get your attention.

So here's the new video from Ricky Martin-who by the way hasn't changed a bit look wise since I was a pre-teen. He's also never changed his stance on equality and has ALWAYS had a great image in Puerto Rico where he has maintained non-profit organizations to help under privileged children. He has changed very much though in other ways. Over the past few years he has come out as a gay man, adopted a child and now come out with a new video for his song titled "The Best Thing About Me is You"  that is all the rage on the interwebs.  Take a look at the video...I know I know it's in Spanish, so for all of you non-speakers, I've included the lyrics in ENGLISH below. You're welcome. Please post your thoughts on the video and let me know what you think...in addition to whether or not you're wondering if that equal sign marking on his chest is a real tattoo.




I’m as happy as I can be

Cause I’m allergic to tragedy
The doctor says something’s wrong with me
The smile on my face has no remedy

So Baby, don’t say no
Come on and just say yes
You know it’s time to keep it simple
Let’s take a chance and hope for the best

Life is short, so make it what you wanna
Make it good, don’t wait until mañana
I think I’m cool cause your name’s on this heart shaped tattoo 
Now the best thing about me is you

I cryin’ days are now history [history]
I had a change of philosophy [philosophy]
I take each day as it comes to me
And I won’t take myself all that seriously

So Baby, don’t say no
Come on and just say yes
You know it’s time to keep it simple
Let’s take a chance, and hope for the best

Life is short, so make it what you wanna
Make it good, don’t wait until mañana
I think I’m cool cause your name’s on this heart shaped tattoo 

Now, the best thing about me is you.
It’s you
Oh baby, now I see it’s you
(Now the best thing, the best thing)
Oh yes it is
(It’s true)

Take off your shoes, lay back, and take a load off
Give me your blues, let me love it away
Nothing to lose, so don’t act like such a grownup
Stay out all night in the moonlight with me

(Don’t say no; don’t say no)
Come on and just say yes
You know it’s time to keep it simple
Let’s take a chance and hope for the best

Life is short, so make it what you wanna
Make it good, don’t wait until mañana
I think I’m cool cause your name’s on this heart shaped tattoo 
Now the best thing about me is you

It’s you
Now the best thing, the best thing, the best thing
About me is you
Now the best thing about me is you.

The best thing about me is you.
The best thing about me is you.
The best thing about me is you

Live, Love, Laugh.
Explore, learn, indulge.

Until next time, folks...Curls OUT.
