On the heels of his announcement in March that he is a “fortunate homosexual,” Ricky Martin will publish his memoir, “Me,” on Nov. 2.
The book will be released simultaneously in English and Spanish (the latter titled “Yo”) under Celebra, an imprint of the Penguin Group devoted to books by Hispanic celebrities.
“Me” will discuss “his early childhood, his experiences in the renowned boy band Menudo, the challenges of increased fame that came with the Livin’ La Vida Loca phenomenon, his continued growth as a musician, and his unique personal connection with millions of fans around the world. Martin also explores life-changing decisions like coming to terms with his sexuality, becoming a father, and devoting himself to helping children around the world,” according to a statement about the book from the singer’s publicist.
Martin is set to release his next album in 2011 and star as the male lead, Che, in a Broadway revival of “Evita” in spring 2012.
