"Ricky Martin has written an extraordinary memoir, the story of a tortured soul who healedhimself by returning to the state of innocence and authenticity. His story will speak to you,because it is, in a sense, the story of humanity—of the sacred and the profane, of forbidden lust and unconditional love. It takes courage to be so ruthlessly honest and transparent, but it is only this kind of courage and this kind of love that can heal the world. Bravo!"—Deepak Chopra, M.D.--This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

In this very informative autobiography entitled "Me", Ricky documents his humble beginnings in South America where he achieved recording success being one of the most popular Latin singers ever, both as a member of the boy group Menudo and a popular solo act. He started acting in musical theatre and was hired for several daytime serials known as telenovelas. All this success would bring him to the attention of the American recording industry and the rest as they say became history.
Ricky discusses how he would become one of the most popular male singers in the 1990's with his english debut record called simply "Ricky Martin", how that record and its two huge singles propelled him into superstar status, and how he wasn't ready for such success.
The most informative part of the book is when he writes about his life as a closeted gay man in an industry where it's important for the female record-buying public to admire and lust after hunky male singers. He discusses how hard it was for him to remain silent on issues regarding his sexuality even after Barbara Walters asked him in a famous interview if he were gay. Finally, after years of silence, when even his close friends and family knew his secret, in 2010 via his Twitter account, Ricky announced his sexual orientation. He writes about that experience and how and why he decided this was the right time to "come out", and his feeling of relief after he pressed "send" on his computer after the revelation.Read more ›
As we all probably know by now, Ricky Martin is a very spiritual person, and the bulk of this book tells of his journey along that path. That alone doesn't bother me; in fact in a lot of ways I can relate to the tales of self reflection and the general "there's got to be more to life than this" moments of despair. Everyone should take a few minutes to breathe. However, that's basically ALL he seems to want to talk about. Even before these spiritual revelations, which are relatively recent, he seems to retroactively place this current mindset on past events, speaking of how he would view them taking place now as opposed to what he felt at the time. I can't tell you how many times he writes something off as "my destiny," or "it was time," or "was meant to be." Okay, but how did you feel? How did you react? He relies on this sort of generic "aligning of the cosmos" rhetoric way too much and in the end I feel like very little of his own personality came through because of it. Not only did it make for an extremely dull read, it also caused me to roll my eyes and scoff outloud many, many times at some of the cornball things he said, which is bad since I'm usually open to that kind of sentiment - in small doses. I just don't believe him to be as deep as he thinks.
Plus he pretty much breezes over major points in his life I'm sure his fans would like to know more about.Read more ›
Ricky Martin's life has been a serendipidous one of great highs and deep personal lows.
He has always been a class act and shares his incredible story without going to the
gutter on us with sensationalistic TMI moments like alot of celebrity tell-all's do today!
His journey is an emotional and a spiritual one as well as his astounding material success
with over 60 million albums sold worldwide in his now 25 yrs in show business.
You get the feeling as you listen to this 7-CD Unabridged version of his memoir simply
called "ME", (read by Jonathan Davis) that Ricky is holding nothing back!
He bears his soul and you can almost feel his catharsis as the huge weight of having to
mask his true self from his public for so long is thrown off, and what is left
is a very talented, charismatic, loving & deeply sensitive individual who is
truly living his life to the fullest and has no shame in his game!--Which is how it should be!
He also is loving this chapter of his life now where career is secondary
to the joy he feels being a father to his beautiful twins Valentino and Matteo.
The truth is the light & the way! And Ricky Martin is living proof! (-:
I enjoyed his story very much and I thank him for sharing it.
Blessings To Ricky Martin & His Family!
