"Here goes my confession," sings Ricky Martin in a black T-shirt, as he stares into his reflection in a dark room resembling a confessional. "Before you, I was no saint," he sings into the mirror. "I have sinned, but that is in the past now. Meeting you was like a shot to the heart."
So opens the touching music video to Martin's second single off his latest Spanish-language album A Quien Quiera Escucha [To Whomever Wants to Listen], this track titled "Disparo El Corazon" ["Shot to the Heart"].
The music video features reflections of same-sex couples on their wedding day, blended with Martin's own reflection in the mirror as he sings about a love affair that went sour. In a recent interview with Billboard, Martin talked about marriage equality, and said, “By June, the Supreme Court will say, 'Let's stop this nonsense and cover the entire country.' It's inevitable — equality is inevitable."
The out father also spoke out recently against gay Italian designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana’s statements calling children born through in-vitro fertilization “synthetic.”
“Your voices are too powerful to be spreading so much hate," Martin tweeted at the designers. "Wake up, it’s 2015. Love yourselves, guys.”
