Before Ricky Martin revealed that he wanted to take his clothes off and go dancing with in the rain with men in 2010, his self-loathing for being gay manifested itself in outward anger and bullying, according to his cover interview for GQ Australia:

“I used to look at gay men and think ‘I’m not like that; I don’t want to be like that. That’s not me.' When you’re told you’re wrong by everyone, from society, from your faith — my self-esteem was crushed. I took my anger out on those around me. I look back now and realize I would bully people who I knew were gay. I internalized homophobia. To realize that was confronting to me. I wanted to get away from that.


Now, says Martin: "I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am.” [NYDN]

Fatone denies. "When you're on top, people want to knock you down." Oh no, you think you're on top? :| [Us Weekly]

Oh my god. Do you all think Liam's been trying to break up with Miley this whole time and, much like her parents, he can't get away because she threatens to spill all his dirty laundry to the tabloids? Oh my god.
