IMDb Mini Biography By: Mayra Caro
Mini Biography Ricky Martin was raised in Puerto Rico. He began his career at the age of 12, as a member of the Puerto Rican music group Menudo. During his time in the group he had the opportunity to travel and record in various languages including Italian, Portuguese, Spanish and English. He left the group in 1989 and went to study in New York. During a trip to Mexico his plans changed when he was offered a part in the musical play, "Mama ama el Rock". He went on to portray "Pablo" in the Mexican soap opera "Alcanzar una estrella II" (1991). He won a Heraldo, the Mexican equivalent of the Academy Award, for his role in Más que alcanzar una estrella (1992), a film loosely based on the soap. In 1991 he began his career as a soloist, with the release of his first album, "Ricky Martin". It sold over 500,000 copies worldwide, becoming one of the highest debuts for a Latin artist under the Sony label in the previous ten years. He followed with another album, "Me Amaras", a more mature compilation of personal and romantic songs which also skyrocketed to the top of the Latin charts and earned him "Best New Latin Artist" at the 1993 Billboard Video Awards. Seeking further opportunities as an actor, he moved to Los Angeles in late 1993. He appeared on two episodes of the NBC sitcom "Getting By" (1993). In February 1994 he made his debut on the ABC daytime soap opera "General Hospital" (1963), as "Miguel Morez". After dedicating two years of his career to acting, Ricky has returned to his first love, music. His release "A Medio Vivir" is a compilation of songs reflecting pop, rock and Latin influences. Ricky Martin is as passionate about helping others as he is about his work. He always finds time to give to drug-addicted and abused children, as well as to educate and inform the youth of the countries he visits about AIDS.

Personal Quotes Ignore the ignorant.
The homosexual community wants me to be gay. The heterosexual community wants me to be straight. Every [writer] thinks, "I'm the journalist who's going to make him talk". I pray for them. I pray that they get a life and stop living mine!
[asked if he has any aspirations for adopting his own children] I don't know when, but right now I am sponsoring three children in India and we have a very beautiful connection.
[on what he would teach his children] Self-respect and to fight for what you want. I love my dad because he allowed me to do what I wanted, even though he know I wouldn't succeed in some moments. With success or failure, people grows. I wouldn't limit the life of my child, because that way you learn the importance of being realistic.
[how he takes care of himself] I eat everything, that's a problem. I don't have discipline. My favorite dish is the Caribbean. Meat, rice, lots of grains. But I do like to do exercises. Lately, I've been having capoeira classes and lots of cardiovascular exercises, such as jogging and cycling.
Buddha's teaching are very simple, you don't have to break your head to understand the message. The part that I like the most from Buddha's teachings and from His Holiness, The Dalai Lama, is that the most powerful weapon is to not attack, to be able to have self-control.
I don't want to dream anymore, I want my life to be real!
