Ricky Martin Blasts Child Sex Tourism
Martin says, “This is slavery and this is the year 2004 and we are still dealing with it. There is a lot of denial. I want to see abolition of this slavery. I need to see the world step out of denial and see this happening here.”
From Kidzworld.com’s Ricky Martin Bio Page:
Ricky Martin’s first real glimpse of the spotlight came when he landed a spot in the teen Latin pop group Menudo. Ricky Martin tried out when he was 10, but didn’t make the group ’til he was 12 cuz they thought he was too young. Ricky Martin spent five years with the band and left in 1989, feeling burnt out and wanting a change.
