Breaking: Ricky Martin Swings Election to Hillary Clinton With Late Endorsement

May 29, 2008 5:25 PM ET

The greatest suspense surrounding this year's presidential election is over, as Ricky Martin announced his endorsement of Hillary Clinton today.

"It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
