Scoop of The Week - Sept. 17, 1999. "He's No Mailman Ricky Martin may be living La Vida Loca, but he violated a federal law! He failed to register with the U.S. Selective Service System. The 27-year-old Latin hunk can never correct his mistake either. Born in Puerto Rico, Ricky is a U.S. citizen. But he failed to sign up with the Selective Service by the age of 18. A reminder was sent to Enrique Martin Morales (his real name) at age 19. What does this mean for Ricky and his fans? Well, the Department of Justice isn't throwing the book at draft deadbeats for now. But he won't be able to hold a government job. That's right. He'll never be a mailman. But he's delivering just fine."

Ricky Martin Biography - Biography.com (627 words)
Martin began appearing in commercials on local television at the age of six.
Martin traveled to Mexico to appear in a stage musical; the gig led to a role as a singer on the 1992 Spanish-language telenovela, Alcanzar una Estrella, or "To Reach a Star." The show proved so popular that he reprised the role in a movie version of the serial.
