When Johnny Grant, honorary Mayor of Hollywood, greeted the crowd at today’s Walk of Fame star ceremony honoring vehemently heterosexual singer Ricky Martin, he remarked, “I didn’t come to see Ricky. I came to see all the pretty women who came to see Ricky!” I took Johnny’s words to heart, and set myself the assignment of roaming the screaming crowd of fans to gather photos and sound bites from all the aforementioned pretty women. However, I was surprised to find that most of the unflinchingly heterosexual singer’s fans were, in fact, rather pretty men.
