Singer Ricky Martin

Ricky Martin wants to adopt a child from every continent.The 'She Bangs' star is planning to open his home to children from all over the world and create a "family of many colors", but insists he won't use his celebrity status to speed up the adoption process.He told the USA Today newspaper: "It's something I want to begin to create this year, a family of many colors. I want to do it right and I don't want problems or misunderstandings."Some think as celebrities we can manipulate the system to have a quicker adoption."Last October, Madonna caused controversy with her adoption of Malawian boy David Banda when she was accused of using her star power to get special treatment.The 48-year-old singer left Malawi with David, who turns two next month,just six days after filing adoption papers. Malawian law normally requires potential adoptive parents to live in the country for one year.Martin, who isn't married, has founded the Ricky Martin Foundation in Puerto Rico campaigning for the welfare of children around the world.The 35-year-old is also a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF).
