Ricky Martin responds to death hoax from "Heaven"

Ricky Martin is not dead. Actually, despite a viral death hoax, the Latin pop star is very much alive and enjoying life in a beautiful setting.

He responded to an online death hoax in possibly the one of the best ways imaginable -- with a few beautiful photographs from an undisclosed (yet beautiful) location he calls "Heaven."

Hello from #heaven.

Over the weekend, a video starting circulating claiming that Martin, 43, died in a car crash, resulting in some confusion over social media.

Martin, we're glad, is very much alive, recently serving as a coach on "The Voice Mexico." He's also releasing the new album, "A Quien Quiera Escuchar (For Whoever Wants to Listen)," this year.
