Living La Vida Giving

In Ricky Martin on March 10, 2008 at 10:00 am

When celebrities reach from their stash and give some of it out, folks sometimes raise their eyebrows, and think: ulterior motive. Ricky Martin tries to understand their skepticism. The singer who recently performed in Panama told the Associated Press:

“When you start to work with social problems, it gets the attention of the media, and people think it’s a farce. It’s a spiritual search. The philanthropic work helps me write music, and the music helps me in the philanthropic work.”

And addressing the wide-held belief that celebrity giving is a trend, Ricky added:

“If this is a fashion, then I hope a lot more fashions like this come along.”

Well, that’s for all of ya’ll, who think celebrities into charity for tax breaks.
