To this I say: Uh, duh! C'mon Ricky, we all knew you were gay ever since the days of "Livin' La Vida Loca." No, I kid. To be serious, I comend him for his bravery. "Coming out - even in this day and age - takes courage." So, congrats Ricky on being able to stand out and say "I am gay" in front of the whole world. To do this deserves praise, no matter how obvious the announcement may have been.
