Fresh off a new album, "A Quien Quiera Escuchar," the 43-year-old Martin said he relishes getting in front of a crowd to talk about children forced into prostitution and pornography.

"Not only in Puerto Rico, all over the world, here in the United States, huge numbers, when it comes to kids that are becoming slaves," Martin told in an interview this week.

The "Livin' la Vida Loca" singer opened a center in last year to combat oppression against children.

His other big cause, he said, is the "fight of my community, the LGBT community, it's something that I won't get tired of."

Martin, father of twin boys born via surrogate, expressed his disappointment on social media and joined Elton John's campaign in boycotting Italian fashion designers and after Dolce described children born to gay couples through fertility treatment as "synthetic."

Martin declined to discuss further the controversy.
