Ricky Martin Says Coming Out Wasn’t Easy

“I couldn’t take it anymore. It was too painful. But I guess the most important thing is my children. … When I was holding them in my arms I was like, ‘What, am I gonna teach them how to lie?’ … When I realized, ‘Okay, I just pressed send,’ whoo—I was alone. I was in my studio alone for a minute. My assistant walked in and I just started crying like a little baby. I started crying.”

Ricky Martin talks to Oprah about his decision to come out of the closet, and how he felt right after making the announcement. No wonder it took him so long. [PopEater] Keep reading »

Should We Be Concerned That These 5 Celebs Are Cutters?

Quitting Twitter is always a bad sign. As we told you earlier today, Demi Lovato has left her gig opening for the Jonas Brothers and has checked into rehab. But for what? A source says that Demi is battling an eating disorder and that she has issues with cutting. Which makes sense since Demi had the blogosphere all atwitter after repeatedly appearing in public with mighty yikes-worthy slashes on her inner wrists. We hoped she just has a ferocious cat—not a cutting problem—but it appears that isn’t the case. [People, WWTDD] After the jump, more stars we suspect are cutters.

What’s Up With This Baseball Jewelry?

So there was a little something last night called the World Series in which the San Francisco Giants beat the Texas Rangers (just in case you hadn’t heard). Did you notice any of the players wearing jewelry? (Or as we like to call male accessories: “mewelry.”) Turns out, it’s quite common for baseball players to wear necklaces, not so much as good luck charms or fashion statements, but to help their game. The rope-like strands contain magnets and aqua titanium, which supposedly “stabilize your electric current inside the body,” allowing you to “enhance your performance” by increasing flexibility and balance, or treating arthritis if you have it. There’s little scientific evidence to back up these claims, but still some big-hitting baseball stars swear by them. Not sure it’s a trend we would hop on for fashion or therapy … but we suppose it’s good to know. [Fox News, MLB Shop] Keep reading »

Dear Wendy: “My Boyfriend Rejects My Gifts”

I am in a fairly new but happy relationship with a sweet, doting guy. I take issue, however, with his constant preoccupation with money. He doesn’t make much, but we’re both young and he has a better job than most people our age. His parents, who both struggle financially, seem to talk about money all the time, and have passed it on to him. I have already brought it up to him in a gentle way, that talking about money makes me uncomfortable and that unless he has a specific complaint he’d like to discuss or share with me, I don’t want to hear it. Now, since things are getting more serious, gifts are entering the equation. I bought him a thoughtful, not terribly expensive birthday present, and since I’m in a foreign country right now, I’ve picked up and sent a few souvenirs to him and his younger siblings (I know that they don’t get gifts very often). Basically, I haven’t been showering him with treasures, but I relish the fact that my ungrateful brother isn’t the only guy I can satisfy my menswear shopping cravings through. My guy seems pretty uncomfortable, even though I reassure him all the time that the little things he’s gotten me (as well as the pricey plane ticket he bought to come see me) mean a ton. I don’t care how much he has, and I wish he didn’t reject my trinkets. I really love giving gifts and can afford it at the moment, but he just seems a little uneasy and whines about how he can’t get me anything in return. What should I do? — Money Isn’t Everything
