Ricky Martin Opens Up About His Love Life As A Single Gay Dad

Ricky Martin may be a global sex symbol, but he says he deals with the same dating struggles as any single, working parent.

The 43-year-old Latin pop superstar opened up about his love life in a candid interview with The Sun, and said that while he meets his share of "very handsome" suitors, his role as father to 6-year-old sons, Matteo and Valentino, precedes his love life.

While a casual fling may be nice, however, he says his kids always come first.

"We’re all men. It’s in our DNA to go for it," he told The Sun. "But I have two boys and I cannot bring different men every day into my house."

Martin split from longtime boyfriend, Carlos Gonzalez Abella, in 2014. Still, he remains hopeful he'll tie the knot one day, saying he loves "the romanticism" of a wedding and that a marriage certificate "is important."

The top priority in his next relationship, he added, is a deep, personal connection.

"I like to have a conversation, looking into someone’s eyes and finding out their sense of humor," he told the publication. "I’m not saying you have to be an Adonis, but you have to connect."

Martin was also critical of fashion designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana of Dolce & Gabbana, who faced an international backlash earlier this year after referring to children born through IVF, including to same-sex families, as "children of chemistry, synthetic children" in an interview.

"I wish them lots of enlightenment," Martin, whose sons were born via a surrogate mother, said. "I hope they analyze a bit to work out what life really is about and what the future has for us."

Lily-Rose Depp Celebrates ‘Sour Sixteen’ Because She’s Her Father’s Daughter

Why aren't we surprised that model and actress Lily-Rose Depp just celebrated her milestone of a birthday with a "Sour Sixteen" party? It might have something to do with the fact that she was raised by a complete kook of a father, and we mean that in the best possible way.

The gorgeous teen, who will appear in the upcoming movie "Young Hosers" with her dad Johnny Depp and Kevin Smith's daughter Harley Quinn Smith, turned 16 on May 27, but she's been sharing photos from her birthday festivities on her Instagram account all week.

On Wednesday, Lily-Rose was joined at Agos restaurant by her father, his wife Amber Heard and her mother Vanessa Paradis, Johnny's former partner with whom he has a son, Jack.

Emma Stone Plays A Part-Asian Character In ‘Aloha,’ And That’s Not Okay

Trailers for "Aloha," a new Cameron Crowe flick starring Bradley Cooper and Emma Stone, cast a seductive spell: a lineup of absurdly charismatic stars, an idyllic island backdrop, a bit of action and a romantic triangle. But the film arrives in theaters today burdened by controversy, not least outcry from Hawaiian and Asian-American activists over the predominantly white cast.

Stone's casting as Allison Ng, a character described as a quarter Hawaiian, stands as a particularly clear snub to the Asian and Pacific Islander community. Ng is a Chinese surname, and many Hawaiians are, in fact, of Chinese descent. Stone, however, is not.

Celeste Ng, author of the bestselling Everything I Never Told You, noticed this odd discrepancy recently and tweeted her confusion:






Guy Aoki of the Media Action Network for Asian Americans expressed frustration over Stone's casting. "It's so typical for Asian or Pacific Islanders to be rendered invisible in stories that we're supposed to be in, in places that we live," he told The Huffington Post. "We're 60 percent of the population [in Hawaii]. We'd like them to reflect reality. "

Popular director Crowe's latest film has been haunted by rumors of poor quality and a lack of studio support since the Sony email leak in December 2014 exposed internal tensions over the film's execution. Bemoaning poor audience reactions in test screenings, then co-chairperson of Sony Pictures Entertainment Amy Pascal wrote, “I'm never starting a movie again when the script is ridiculous.” Strict limits on advance press viewings and review embargoes only stirred up more speculation that the long-awaited film is a dud; early reviews have indeed been brutal.

Even the carefully curated trailers for "Aloha" have attracted criticism, however.

The casting of a white actress as a part-Asian, Hawaiian character rings alarm bells for activists on the lookout for the erasure of Asians and Pacific Islanders from film and television. Asian-Americans are shockingly underrepresented onscreen.

"This casting reflects an overall pattern in Hollywood to seek out and prioritize white talent over actors of color," Marissa Lee, cofounder of Racebending.com, told HuffPost. Across the board, she argued, "institutions need to truly prioritize diversity in casting, and not only when it suits them."

Whistleblowers are clear that Stone's casting as Ng is only one symptom of a problem that plagues "Aloha." Though writer-director Crowe has emphasized his love for Hawaiian culture and desire to honor it in the film, Hawaiians have been troubled by the choice of a predominantly white cast for a movie set on the islands and guided by Hawaiian cultural themes.

"It's just in keeping with the whitewashed nature of this movie," Aoki said of Stone’s casting as Ng. "Doesn't it make sense they got over 30 white actors and instead of casting one who's part Asian, they go and make a white person part Asian?"

The Huffington Post reached out to Sony for comment, but as of press time, they had not provided a response. On Wednesday, Sony released a statement addressing widespread concern over the perceived whitewashing of Hawaii in “Aloha,” saying, “While some have been quick to judge a movie they haven’t seen and a script they haven’t read, the film Aloha respectfully showcases the spirit and culture of the Hawaiian people.”

The Moment Demi Lovato Decided She Didn’t ‘Want To Be Miserable Anymore’

Throughout the years, Demi Lovato has been candid talking about her past struggles with drug addiction, bulimia and diagnosis with bipolar disorder. In a recent interview, the singer opened up about one instance in particular that made her realize she needed to get help.

Lovato, who is spreading awareness about the mental illness, said that she had been "a couple years" out of inpatient treatment when her friends noticed that she had reached a new breaking point.

"They were sensing that I needed help and they came to me, and I... trust the people around me. When I saw what they were talking about, I thought, 'You know what? It's time for me to get help,'" she told HuffPost Live on Thursday. "I don't want to be miserable anymore. I deserve to have a better life than this."

Today, Lovato lives "well with bipolar disorder," but she recalled how at age 15 or 16, she'd fall into crying bouts for reasons unbeknownst to her, a symptom of her bipolar disorder.

"I was looking out my tour bus window, I was living my dream, and I was just sitting there, looking out the window and crying, thinking, 'Why am I crying? What's wrong with me?'" she said.

But the "Heart Attack" singer concluded "there was nothing wrong with me" -- and the same is true for others living with bipolar disorder. To learn more about symptoms and treatment, visit BeVocalSpeakUp.com.

Kristen Bell Live-Tweets Hilarious Uber Mistake

Uber is convenient, but it might not always be the most straightforward service. On Thursday, actress Kristen Bell tweeted about her experience accidentally ordering a carpool instead of a private car via the app.

Bell apparently pressed the UberPool button -- which lets you carpool with another Uber passenger -- without realizing what it was. (The company bills its carpool feature as a significantly less expensive option than regular Uber, UberX, UberT and UberBlack.) After her Uber car showed up, she was confused when the driver told her they needed to pick up another passenger.







Thankfully for Bell, she got home safely in the end. And thankfully for us, she tweeted the whole way there.




























Uber did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Jim Breuer Remembers Norm Macdonald’s Amazing ‘SNL’ Prank On Chris Kattan

Anything can happen on a live show, especially when that show is "Saturday Night Live." Former "SNL" cast member Jim Breuer shared an example of that with HuffPost Live on Thursday, when he recalled a hilarious behind-the-scenes moment that made it nearly impossible to avoid breaking character on the air.

It happened during a 1997 episode hosted by Pamela Anderson, who appeared in a "Twilight Zone" sketch with Breuer, Norm Macdonald, Chris Kattan and Will Ferrell. Macdonald and Kattan had been at odds all week, Breuer said, and Macdonald decided to take revenge seconds before the show came back from commercial.

"I'm starting to giggle here, and I can't keep a straight face," Breuer said as he watched footage from the sketch. "I started laughing so hard right before this because Norm and Kattan got in a bicker, literally right before it went to air."

Watch Breuer tell the story in the video above, and click here for the full HuffPost Live conversation about his latest comedy special, "Jim Breuer: Comic Frenzy."
