    Ricky Martin will live la vida loca for President Obama. Martin will host a fundraising event for the Commander-in-Chief to show thanks for his support of gay rights.

    Martin and the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Leadership Council and the Futuro Fund to host a benefit for the president at New York City’s Rubin Museum of Art this month.

    Martin said, "I am proud to support our president. I believe Barack Obama has shown a deep conviction to help those most in need, even if their voices are not always the ones heard the loudest in Washington. He has also been an exceptionally strong advocate for the Latino and LGBT communities… With his actions, I believe the president has put the United States back on the right path and has earned the opportunity to finish the critical work that he has started."

    Team Obama or Team GOP candidate, whomever that will be?
