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." 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.
Martin began his career at age twelve with the all-boy pop group Menudo.
In 1994 he starred on the American TV soap opera General Hospital, playing a Puerto Rican singer. Following its success, Martin released "Livin' la Vida Loca" which helped him obtain enormous success worldwide and is generally seen as the song that began the Latin pop explosion of 1999 and made the transition easier for other Spanish-speaking artists to move into the English-speaking market.
In late 1999, after releasing several albums in Spanish, Martin performed "The Cup of Life" at the 41st Grammy Awards show, which became a catalyst in bringing Latin pop to the forefront of the U. Since its release, the song has sold over 8 million copies, making it one of the best selling singles of all time.
