    Congrats to newly out pop star Ricky Martin, who is being honored later this year by the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation.

    The organization announced that Martin will receive the Vito Russo Award at GLAAD's 22nd annual Media Awards on March 19th in New York City. The award is presented to an openly LGBT media professional who made a significant difference in promoting equal rights.

    Martin, 39, came out last year, after years of speculation about his sexuality. GLAAD President Jarrett Barrios called Martin's disclosure "a game changer for many gay and transgender Latino children."

    Congrats, Ricky!

    What is your favorite Ricky Martin song? "Livin' La Vida Loca," right?
