Ricky Martin has reportedly bought his own island off the coast of Rio de Janeiro

According to Mexican newspaper El Universal, Martin, who has had his heart set on buying the land for several months, paid nearly $8 million dollars for the private island.” Martin was in Washington DC yesterday speaking at ‘Call and Live: A Campaign Against Human Trafficking in Washington, D.C.’ to launch a hotline that would aid in anti-trafficking and victim protection. According to TRN, “‘Call and Live’ is a hotline that is used to report human trafficking violations, and has already received over 55,000 phone calls to report wrongdoings. The IDB initiative against human trafficking is meant to be used by Latin nations in order to help their efforts to ‘prevent, protect, and prosecute.’”

TMZ caught up with Martin on his way to the event, noting that the Puerto Rican singer is looking fine. Martin attributed his svelte figure to Capoeira.

We all know it is not Capoeira.

What Was He Doing There?!

March 28, 2008

Krishi Dutt, a huge Ricky Martin fan from Mumbai, was in Kolkata for official purposes and couldn’t have asked for a better “surprise.”

The lucky Krishi was able to share a sauna bath with Ricky at the Grand Oberoi hotel in Kolkata. Nude.

Krishi said Ricky was sporting a moustache and beard. When asked if he was the singer, Rick smiled and said, “you have the wrong person”.

Krishi also noticed Ricky had a large tattoo on his left arm and one on his lower pelvic area. He was wearing a beaded anklet and had henna on his feet.

After about 30 minutes or so in the sauna, Ricky left to then return and ask for some help finding his locker room keys.

After Martin got dressed and was about to leave, Krishi ran up to him and asked for an autograph. This time Ricky smiled, gave the autograph and left.

Turns out the singer was in Kolkata to visit the Sabera Foundation, a non-profit organization which helps homeless children, as well as widows and women who have been abandoned by their husbands. The foundation was founded by Spanish singer,Nacho Cano.

Seriously, when will he come out. Urgh. Stating the obvious!!!
