HONG KONG (AP) _ Ricky Martin insists there's a spiritual side to his music that's often overlooked.

``My concerts are about joy, not feeling judged and being in touch with your soul,'' Martin said Tuesday. ``I want to find peace and to project peace.''

The latest video from the gyrating Puerto Rican heartthrob features Martin posing atop a glass box filled with groping nudes. The 28-year-old star lashed out at suggestions his act is too sexual.

``I'm tired of all that `Ooh' stuff _ let's live, let's get rid of taboo, and let's start breathing, please,'' Martin told reporters during a stop here on his Asian tour.

Martin said he finds his inspiration ``from silence, to be honest, and my meditation.''
