    I must say that I’ve been pleasantly surprised with the news like this at this page. Something different from the all “rubbish” rumours about Britney’s husbands, this lovers and that lovers, this naked and that naked, all those fights between B. and C. fans, etc. The “normal” reader would have a feeling that the page has been visited only by under age adolescents with a very low demand for a quality “stuff” about the celebrities and if there is a one, nobody even care. What’s the problem with you, guys? Anyway I must congratulate popdirt to bring something different here and make me happy and hopefully will see more good news about Ricky Martin in the near future!
