Grammy-winning singer Marc Anthony’s road to international fame, acclaim and riches, to paraphrase Queen, was no bed or roses or pleasure cruise. The man described as a Latin Frank Sinatra, and sold more than 12 million albums around the globe, opens up about the adversity he faced in his life and career in June's issue of MEN’S FITNESS.

Like many kids these days, Anthony was bullied as a child, but isn’t one to gloat about who had the last laugh.

“Those people who picked on me probably got their ass kicked in the present day,” he said, noting that in spite of his innumerable success in the entertainment world, he’s “more proud of the work that his foundation (Maestro Cares) is doing, to be honest.”

“I have a lot of stories to tell. I got smacked around early on, and it was hard, but to me it was part of the game,” he said, looking back. “As blessed as I am, my heart goes out to any artist who has to do it on his own.”

For more of with Marc, you can catch an upcoming interview on the premiere Latin music app Uforia, downloadable for both iTunes and Google Play. Marc's chat with Uforia’s Enrique Santos airs  Monday 8 a.m. EST on Mix 98, with a second listen at 5 p.m. via the Uforia app.
