Ricky Martin Won’t Be a Nasty Judge

Ricky MartinRicky Martin has no plans to reveal his nasty side on The Voice Australia.

The "Livin' La Vida Loca" singer - who is set to finish his stint performing in Evita on Broadway on January 26 - has signed on to judge the second series of the show but the Grammy winner said he won't be the show's version of Simon Cowell.

The 40-year-old star told the Huffington Post, "I don't believe in tough love. I believe in love, and I believe in being nurturing to new talented men and women."

Ricky is heavily involved in the development of a new dramedy series tackling social issues with a sense of humor for NBC that he will produce, write and star in. The series is expected to hit screens next year.

"It's about growing. It's a moment in my life where I just need to absorb and be surrounded by amazing actors and musicians and grow as an entertainer. I think this is going to be an amazing year for that," he said.
