Apparently, Ricky "La Vida Loca" Martin flipped the bird in reference to George W. Bush during a recent concert. I guess there's a lyric in on of his songs that refers to having "a photo with the president." When singing this lyric, the Rick-dog apparently let it fly and the crowd went wild.
Things have really gotten bad, ladies and germs, if Ricky fucking Martin is getting political. Read about it HERE.
But, let's not lose sight of one important, fantastically ironic piece of information: Ricky Martin performed at W's inauguration! How do you like them apples?
The best part of all of this, however, is undoubtedly the comments left on the news site linked above - from fans and foes alike. It's a real meeting of the minds. Here are a few tidbits that float my proverbial boat. I've added comments and underlined certain phrases for emphasis. Wow!

Ricky shows that a real man is not afraid to stand up to fascism. It is a shame that after the Dixie Chicks this gesture is actually considered daring. Please! What happened to all of the rebel musicians? Stop being sheeple and stand up on your hind legs already! (Remember, we're talking about Ricky Martin here.)
Let’s all sides calm down and agree that probably no one cares what a one hit wonder from the late 90’s thinks of anything. (Oh, I beg to differ, Tolo!)
All commentators that are shocked, dismayed, befuddled, disgusted, angered or feels superior in disagreeing with “the finger”. You are in the minority, most Americans, and even more foreigners find a bond with Mr. Martin in his gesture. Whine all you want, it represents the tail end of an enivitable change coming. (Let's not get ahead of ourselves, Tony.)
Ricky speaks the truth. Bush is bankrupting the country with this bogus war.
Bush got what he deserved!!! (Did he? I'm of the opinion he deserves just a smidge more than this.)
Go ricky go! So hot. (Emily, no one can say you're ignoring the real
He should have done it sooner. Like when he performed at Bush’s inauguration, that would have been good. Pick a side Ricky… (Yes, Ricky, there's a lot hinging on
your decision! Please, take a stand.)
