Picks and Pans Review: Sounds Off
The Latin pop star, 32, is fighting against child prostitution and forced labor with People for Children, part of the Ricky Martin Foundation.
ON WHY HE CHOSE THIS CAUSE Millions of children in the world are being forced into sexual labor. We're talking about slavery. In some countries it's more obvious than others. But it's something that can be happening in your neighborhood and you don't know.
ON USING HIS FAME TO HELP OTHERS My music is accepted everywhere. I reach masses of people. So let's take advantage of this to make a difference. It's something every entertainer should do.
ON HIS UPCOMING ENGLISH LANGUAGE ALBUM I've been traveling all over the world, learning about different sounds and instruments. I created a really cool sound. I call it tribal rock.
ON "LIVIN' LA VIDA LOCA" BEING FEATURED IN SHREK 2 It was so funny it was great. They imitated my video, actually. It's flattering. I could imagine Antonio Banderas and Eddie Murphy [who sang the song] locked in a studio recording it.
