NEW YORK (AP) — Ricky Martin commands the stage with an air of confidence, yet the Latin superstar admits to being self-conscious at times.

"I'm still human and sometimes I feel uncertain about things," Martin admitted Thursday night at the Broadway premiere of "Evita," the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical.

As for "coming out" over his orientation, Martin admits that was an important step for him.

"That helps a lot" the Grammy-winning performer said. "Now I'm just allowing myself to feel onstage and see lives though the life of this character."

Martin has a few lives of his own to deal with these days as the performer is "Livin La Vida Familia" with his partner, Carlos, and their twin sons.

"I'm loving every minute of it. Loving every minute of it," Martin said.

Martin plays Che, the every-man narrator in the show currently playing at the Marquis Theater.
