Ricky Martin Announced Online He is Gay

Ricky Martin, the Livin' La Vida Loca singer, proudly announced via twitter that he is proud to be a homosexual. What led him to go public is because of his writing and his twin sons.

He kept his sexuality private all over his career. He is very happy now of what he is today. A lot of people are very open to their homosexuality and feel contentment already about it.

I Will Help My Country Through Paying Taxes

I am just an ordinary employee of a company with a regular wage. Now that election is coming, I want changes in my own country, progression. The question is how can I help my country when I am just an ordinary Filipino person?

For me, I will vote for a president who is not corrupt. I am expecting a President who has concern to his fellowmen and his country. The President should implement that those people who have work should pay their taxes religiously.

I've been employed to some companies. I am not a graduate but at least two years in college. I am happy that it was easy for me to find a job and even happier when I am employed to a reputable company because I am sure to myself that I could have good benefits. At least, I could help my country in a little way through paying my taxes.

But I observed that my own country has no progress. Corruptions are all over the country. Some politicians are getting richer because the money of the people are already on their pockets.

Filipinos are already hardworking but how come we are still behind and already belonged to the 3rd world country? The poor are getting poorer and the rich are getting richer. I hope that people from the low status of our community could have decent jobs for their family.

If everyone has decent jobs with regular wages, people can pay their taxes and everyone can help our country.

Monument for Manny Pacquiao???

I beg to disagree for building a monument for Manny Pacquiao. I admire and respect him for being the Greatest Boxer in the World and Filipinos are getting famous for our own talent. He already have the fame and riches: an actor, a recording artist, a wanna-be politician... what more can he ask for?

I say Manny Pacquiao is a very humble person but I think he should disapprove a monument depicting himself. The politicians are riding with the fame of Manny Pacquiao for using him now that the election is near. Besides, he have been welcomed to any provinces or city, like Manila, Cebu and his own General Santos. I've heard that Manila and Cebu will build a monument for him. What the...??? A monument in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao? Come to think of it that the money use to be build for the monument comes from the people of the Philippines. You know, OUR TAXES???

It is such a waste if the project for a monument will be pushed-through. There are no benefits that we could get from it. I hope that whoever politicians are thinking of the project will change his or her mind that the money should be used for the welfare of the people in their town, city, province and much more for the country.

Manny Pacquiao for Vice-Mayor in Cebu

The past few days, I was shocked when I heard this from a co-employee that Manny Pacquiao (preferring the Boxing Champ) will run for Vice-Mayor in Cebu City. I just said, "What??? After running as a Congressman in General Santos and Sultan Kudarat, he will invade Cebu for the vice-mayor position?" I kept thinking on thinking when in fact he is not a resident in Cebu.

I searched for it and really found out that it is really Manny Pacquiao - but not the boxing champ. He is Atty. Emmanuel “Manny” Pacquiao who claimed to be a distant related to the Filipino boxer. He will be the running mate of the younger sister of Cebu City Mayor Tomas Osmeña, Georgia Osmeña.

Pacquiao, who is 61, a Cebuano bar topnotcher and for the past 32 years he has been a law professor in the University of the Visayas. He was also an Office-in-Charge (OIC) councilor, a Chairman of the Committee on Laws and Revision of Laws, an Assistant City Attorney and Acting City Attorney, and a Special Assistant.

Adam Lambert Lost his Humility

I got stuck on Adam Lambert when he joined the 8th season of American Idol. I was very fond of him because he is really handsome and also admired him with his awesome performance. I really bet that he would be the American Idol for the season. I also admired him for his humility every time the judges of American Idol praised his unpredictable performances. Even though he is gay, I still believe with his talent and that being gay is not a hindrance of his singing career as long as he stays being humble. During the finals, I was sad that he ended as the runner-up.

He is very open for being gay, I respect that, but I was disappointed when he kissed a guy during a performance. I was shocked because it was on tv and the possibility that children were also watching the performance. It wasn't the Adam Lambert that I saw on American Idol. The Adam Lambert today is the "I don't care what other people say as long as I am me." The "I don't care what other people say..." may be true but I guess he should think first on what he is going to say or do if he is not offending other people.

Recently, he commented on Susan Boyle's album that it is terrible. He said that he was crying with laughter when he first heard "Wild Horses" from the Rolling Stone's classics. Adam Lambert has no right to say that. To think, he is still starting after the American Idol. How many years did he already spent on Hollywood for giving that comment to Susan Boyle, who was also ended as runner up in Britain's Got Talent?

It is said that Adam Lambert may be jealous of Susan Boyle because his album, For Your Entertainment, was out of the top spot by Boyle's I Dreamed a Dream on US charts. No doubt that Susan Boyle's I Dreamed a Dream is already 4x platinum and sold for over 4 million copies only in the United States.
