Usher recently discussed his new, Nicki Minaj-assisted song "Lil' Freak," explaining that the lyrics are consistent with his modern lifestyle, which includes getting his female friends to bring home girls for him. "I mean, I wrote about it," Usher told MTV. "It happens in this day and time. Those are the best chicks to be friends with, honestly." The lyrics of the song are as follows, "If you're f---ing with me/ Really f---ing with me/ You go get some girls and bring them to me/ If you f---ing with me/ Really f---ing with me/ You let her put her hands in your pants/ Be my little freak." Fantastic. [UsherFix]

Well, it looks like Ricky Martin finally did the inevitable. In a 6 paragraph letter posted on Martin's website, the singer announced that he is gay. "If someone asked me today, "Ricky, what are you afraid of?" I would answer "the blood that runs through the streets of countries at war...child slavery, terrorism...the cynicism of some people in positions of power, the misinterpretation of faith." But fear of my truth? Not at all! On the contrary, It fills me with strength and courage. This is just what I need especially now that I am the father of two beautiful boys that are so full of light and who with their outlook teach me new things every day. To keep living as I did up until today would be to indirectly diminish the glow that my kids where born with. Enough is enough. This has to change. This was not supposed to happen 5 or 10 years ago, it is supposed to happen now. Today is my day, this is my time, and this is my moment.
I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am." Collective sigh of relief. Congratulations Ricky. [RickyMartinMusic]
