You Will See Ricky Martin’s Bon-Bon On “Assassination Of Gianni Versace”

*sets DVR*

Eternal hottie Ricky Martin swung by The Ellen DeGeneres Show to talk about everything from the money he’s raised for Puerto Rico relief efforts—almost $5 million!—to his children and his upcoming role on American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace.

And fans of Martin should be extra excited because when discussing his role on the limited series he revealed that he shows his “tush for the first time on television.”

“You sure do,” DeGeneres added. “More than that!”

“You guys have to see. It’s really good,” teased Martin.

Challenge accepted.
 

The “She Bangs” singer went onto talk about how brilliant The Assassination of Gianni Versace is and how it was important to him, as a member of the LGBT community, to be a part of the limited series.

Martin plays Antonio D’Amico, Versace’s boyfriend of 15 years and who was at Versace’s mansion when he was shot. Martin says he spoke with D’Amico, who has been “incredibly generous”—which is different from his original reaction when he called Martin’s portrayal a “total fabrication.”

“There has been so much written and said about the murder, and thousands of suppositions, but not a trace of reality,” D’Amico told the Observer.

“The picture of Ricky Martin holding the body in his arms is ridiculous,” he added. “Maybe it’s the director’s poetic license, but that is not how I reacted.”

American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace premieres January 17 on FX. Will you be watching?
