This Week In Dallas Music History: Ricky Martin Mania!
Ricky Martin was "Livin' La Vida Loca" there for a while.
There was a time in the late '90s when Ricky Martin was an inescapable superstar.
His hit, "Livin' La Vida Loca," was omnipresent, on every radio station at all times. People were so obsessed with Martin's south-of-the-equator style that he ushered in an entire so-called Latin Invasion, most of which was avoidable except for Martin's single hit.
Now we can look back and sort of laugh at those times.
But, with the help of the following comic that ran in the music section of the Observer this week in 1999, it might be a little easier. So, for this edition of This Week In Dallas Music History, watch Ricky Martin take the form of almost every music superstar that came before him. And, at the end of the comic, the artist predicted that when his star burnt out, Martin would be available for Bar Mitzvahs.
Turns out he just came out of the closet last year instead.
Hit the jump to see the whole thing.
