OUT 100 Gives Ricky Martin Top Honors

OUT Magazine has released their 16th Annual Out 100 List for 2010 and Ricky Martin has topped the list with Entertainer of the Year. Wow. What a whirlwind year it has been for him. From coming out, to interviews with Oprah and Ellen, to this famed list; I’m sure he is feeling so honored. In the article, OUT Magazine touches on the story of Ricky’s decision to come out. To brush you all up, Ricky posted a letter on his official website and linked it to his Twitter. It was so well written and ended with the most amazing statement: “I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am”. Amazing! Who else topped the list?

Olympic figure skater, and eccentric news-maker Johnny Weir makes the list as Diva of the Year. He’s won 3 U.S. Championships and is currently ranked 12th in the World by the International Skating Union but honestly, what makes him the lovable figure he’s become is his commitment to glamour, pageantry and the way he deals with any of the controversies that come his way on or off the ice.

Julianne Moore is named Artist of the Year on the 2010 list. Moore turns 50 this year and shows no sign of stopping. Between starring in countless movies and making appearances on NBC’s 30 Rock, she is set to release her latest project Crazy, Stupid, Love which is slated for release in 2011.

With his own show now on television styling the homes and lives of countless Americans, Nate Berkus surely deserves the title Stylemaker of the Year. He decided to leave the Oprah show and start his show for NBC after completing an astonishing 127 home makeovers. Wow!

One of my favorite bands, Scissor Sisters are on the list as well. Donovan had the chance to check them out this summer and they did not disappoint. Their latest album, Night Work shot to Number 2 on the British charts. Although it only squeaked onto the U.S. Billboard charts, I’m sure their opening tour spot with Lady Gaga in 2011 will help boost their popularity in the states.

Many more amazing actors, authors, directors, musicians and humanitarians topped the OUT 100 list with amazing stories to boot. Pick up your copy of OUT Magazine to check out the entire list. What do you think of this year’s list?

  • I am SO not fine with this. Ricky Martin named Entertainer of the Year? WHY?!? He hasn’t ENTERTAINED anyone in like 5 years.

    This is just so fucking….typical. I am so irritated by Ricky with his whole coming out thing. He came out JUST as his new album and book were coming out. It was all calculated.

    No, I am absolutely NOT ok with naming him EOY. What about ELLEN as Entertainer of the Year? She is the most high profile gay person who is ACTUALLY Entertaining?

    Pathetic.

    @Tommy D… You took the words right out of my mouth. That was the exact thought I had the second I read that statement.

    … the most amazing statement: “I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am”.

    It left out the rest of the quote… “and now that I haven’t been heard of in who knows how long, and am on the verge of releasing a new album and a book, it’s time to get the world talking about me again. Guess what, I’m GAY!!!! I just couldn’t bring myself to publicly acknowledge it until it would do me the most good. Thank You for giving me the courage Sean Hayes.”
