Ricky Martin Won’t Be a Nasty Judge

Ricky MartinRicky Martin has no plans to reveal his nasty side on The Voice Australia.

The "Livin' La Vida Loca" singer - who is set to finish his stint performing in Evita on Broadway on January 26 - has signed on to judge the second series of the show but the Grammy winner said he won't be the show's version of Simon Cowell.

The 40-year-old star told the Huffington Post, "I don't believe in tough love. I believe in love, and I believe in being nurturing to new talented men and women."

Ricky is heavily involved in the development of a new dramedy series tackling social issues with a sense of humor for NBC that he will produce, write and star in. The series is expected to hit screens next year.

"It's about growing. It's a moment in my life where I just need to absorb and be surrounded by amazing actors and musicians and grow as an entertainer. I think this is going to be an amazing year for that," he said.

Reality Show Searches for Next Menudo

MenudoRemember Menudo, the Puerto Rican boy band from the 80s? You may or may not recall that Ricky Martin got his start with this group—the band had a revolving roster which replaced members once they got too old, too tall, or their voice changed. The group lasted through the years, changing the name in the late 90s to MDO. Now, Menudo has jumped on the reality series bandwagon with an American Idol-style competition to choose its next members. Auditions are now underway, with the first set of kids heard in Miami. Serving as judges are Johnny Wright, who managed New Kids on the Block, ‘NSync and the Backstreet Boys, as well as Howie Dorough, one of the Backstreet Boys. “We’re going to make it a little different than it was before,” Wright said. “The beat is going to be the beats of the street now — club, hip-hop and rock. It’s not going to be something that’s pigeonholed.” The Road to Menudo will air on MTV Tr3s, MTV’s bilingual Latin-American channel, next month.
