Ricky Martin made his broadway debut yesterday in "Evita" playing Che' and he is the cover story for The Advocate where the latin star opens up about his relationship and his career success.

Martin spoke candidly and free about what attracts him to his lover;

“I think he’s so sexy. He’s very smart. That is such a turn-on. He leaves the house every day in a suit and tie and that is so sexy. It’s two different worlds — his and mine. I know as much about his world as he knows about my world, which makes it really cool.”

Martin also admitted he hasn't even read his book yet where he announced he was gay.

He did talk about his success and what type of people need to surround him;

“You have to be careful. It’s not easy to deal with fame. I’m very lucky to be surrounded by amazing people who are raw and honest, who will say I’m wrong, and who will also congratulate me.”

Ricky seems very grounded and humble. Here is hoping we are hearing more about him soon than reading about him.-DocFB

Lady Gaga has a lot of gay fans. So does Bed, Bath, and Beyond. Others are saying she is using the gay community to sell cd's.  Instead of ignoring the comments, Gaga did an interview with The Advocate to talk about it and deny it.

Gaga states this about using her gay fans; "one of the most ridiculous statements anyone can make about me."

She also tells The Advocate that "I would say the top thing I think about every single day of my life, other than my fans, loving the music, and my family being healthy, is social justice and equality."

Hmm.  She cares about her gay fans. So what?  She cancelled a lucrative deal with Target for her "Born This Way" special edition set to be carried exclusively by the retailer after outrage from the gay community for Target's stance and contributions to anti-gay businesses.  So, it really is not using when she has passed on business deals that would help her by protecting them and understanding she has a pretty big gay fan base.

Do you think Lady Gaga is using her gay fans?-Dr.FB
