Not only did Martin announce his upcoming Las Vegas residency on Ellen, but he also told how he met and popped the question to Yosef. “He’s a conceptual artist and I’m a collector,” he explained. “I started looking for art and I saw his art and I went crazy because I really love what he does, really original. And then I contacted him.”
“And then you collected him,” Ellen joked.
“We just got engaged!” Martin announced excitedly. “I got on my knees and I took out the little, uh, not a box, I just had it in a little velvet pouch and instead of saying, ‘Will you marry me?’ I said, ‘I got you something!’ Bad,” the singer said. “And he said ‘Yes?’ And I said ‘I want to spend my life with you.’ Then he was like ‘What is the question?’ ‘Would you marry me?’ That’s it.”
