Martin, Minaj team up for charity

Ricky Martin has become the first man to sign up for MAC's Viva Glam campaign.

The Livin' La Vida Loca singer has created a clear lipbalm (VIVA Glam Lip Conditioner), while Super Bass star Nicki Minaj has designed a new "flamingo pink" lipstick for the range, with proceeds going to the MAC AIDS Fund.

"I'm the first Latin man to be part of the campaign and I hope I'm not the last! The brand has such a rich history of helping those affected by HIV/AIDS globally and I'm proud to now be a part of this movement," said Ricky.

He also heaped praise on Nicki, saying: "Nicki Minaj is marvellous and absolutely beautiful! She is very professional and has such incredible energy. We had the best time on set together."

Nicki added: "Ricky Martin is big time! He is so great to work with and a true professional. Our goal is to help reach the 250 million dollar goal for the MAC AIDS Fund by the time of the International AIDS Conference in July 2012 and I have no doubt that the two of us are going to achieve it."

Both products in the range are available from March 1.
