'Best Thing' About New Ricky Martin Single Is Parade Of Press To Reignite Passe Pop Career

Ricky Martin's new post-gay single is a sweet little calypso number, perhaps so simplistic that it falls a little flaccid. Since he's all out of the closet and shit now, there's lots of junk about freedom, oppression, equality and "not taking himself too seriously." There's even boys holding each other: scandalous!

Forgive my wee cynicism, but after Ricky has been absent from the pop charts for a decade, I can't help but smell opportunity knocking on the closet door. But at least he takes his shirt off some and shows those gorgeous white teeth.
