Ricky Martin admits he once ‘did pee-pee’ while performing on stage ‘Things happen. It’s live’
Ricky Martin wants you to know that accidents do happen.
And sometimes they happen onstage in front of thousands of fans.
The five-time Grammy winner was asked this week by talk show host Kelly Ripa about the craziest thing to ever happen to him onstage while in concert.
The singer said he’s forgotten his songs and once even fell off the stage. Then there was also the time he had an accident of a different kind had a little accident.
‘I did pee-pee once on the stage,’ Martin said on Live With Kelly.
‘Things happen. It’s live. The show must go on. It’s not a decision that I made, it just happened and you keep going..
Is this too much info?’ he asked the laughing audience on Ripa’s show. ‘Things happen. It’s real.’
Martin appeared on the show to promote the start next month of his first-ever Las Vegas residency at Park Theater at Monte Carlo.
‘I have my own theater in Vegas!’ he said.
‘They offered me this big opportunity and I’m not gonna say no. Now is the time – now is perfect for me to be able to do it.’
He will start April 5 and be there until September ‘and (then) hopefully more and more and more.’
Not that this is Martin’s first time performing in Vegas. That first time was in September 1984 when he was 12 years old and a member of the band Menudo.
He’s performed there every years since then but never in the type of residency situation that has proven so popular with such artists as Celine Dion, Elton John, Britney Spears, Cher, Jennifer Lopez, Mariah Carey, Shania Twain, Donny and Marie Osmond, Bette Midler and Rod Stewart, among others.
