Ricky Martin was on Ellen Friday talking about his kids, boyfriend, and performing his new single "Come With Me" I remember when he came out with "Livin La Vida Loca" everyone wanted him (male and female). And once he came out everyone just kind of turned him on mute. Is this just me or do you all see the same thing?
Has Ricky Martin Fallen Completely Off? It Seems The Minute He Came Out The Closet He Became Irrelevant

He fell off the radar years before he came out. That's just the reason he came out, because he didn't have any worthy career to lose anymore.

Ricky Martin is busier than ever.
After starring in Evita on Broadway in New York City for a good while, he became a judge on a music talent show (like the ones in the U.S.) in Australia. He did a long stint as a judge in Australia, and now he has gone back to Australia for a 2nd stint as a judge.
He has a new music video out with a new song in both English and Spanish.
All you have to do is look at his website, too, if you're curious as to what he is doing rather than making ignorant statements on Datalounge with zero knowledge.

You have to remember that was fifteen years ago, when he was at the height of his physical beauty. Fifteen years later he's still hot, but he's not the stunning young thing he was then. Everyone in the world wanted to fuck him that year (I hope he made the most of it).

R1 is correct, the OP is way off, and seems to have a creepy pro-closet agenda. Martin was a well established has-been by the time he finally came out, although he was still big in the Latin market with Spanish language albums. I don't know how coming out affected him there, but that was the whole point of coming out, to say "gay is ok" to the people who really appreciate and look up to him. So if he lost some homophobic fans in the process, it was worth it, because he influenced many other fans to stop being homophobic.

He's always going to be gorgeous. While he still has fans, both his age and that he came out probably cost him a number of female fan base.
I find it pretentious that he sends his sons to "a French speaking school". It's fine to have them learn French but I think that's just weird. Some rich people get so bizarre with their offspring.

And recently penning a contract with NBC Universal to create his own TV series - star in it and produce it and create it -
plus the contract includes TV specials in addition to the TV series.
Not to mention the sold out concert tours in the U.S., multitudes of Spanish speaking countries, Europe, and Asia in the years right before he started starring in Evita in NYC is not enough for your either?

Just because you haven't the interest to follow his career doesn't mean it has not existed.
As recently as 2009 and 2010 he was on a very successful World Tour in the U.S., multiple Spanish speaking countries, Europe, and Asia.
And he has put out a successful album during that time that won awards. His 2009 tour in the U.S. was successful and he has always maintained high visibility and success all over the world in Spanish speaking countries, Europe, and Asia.

He was so hot in 1999! I remember when I first discovered him at that year's Grammys. I initially tuned in because it was the first time that Madonna finally won a Grammy (3 total) for RAY OF LIGHT, but I came away with a new crush. Those tight pants he wore and the way he shook his "bon bon" was electric (though he sang "La copa de la vida"). It was like Elvis Redux. He got a standing ovation after his performance. Then the next day, he was the next big thing. The whole industry and media were talking about him.
He really was gorgeous then. Nowadays I don't find him attractive. He used to look metrosexual then, but as he's aged his gayface has become apparent, and that Macklemore haircut does him no favors, not to mention the tattoos.
