"I Don't Care" is a song by Puerto Rican singer Ricky Martin from his tenth album, Life. It was released as a single on September 13, 2005.

The original English version of the song features rapper Fat Joe and R&B singer Amerie, while its Spanish version, "Qué Más Da" ("Who Cares"), replaces Amerie's vocals with Debi Nova's.

Martin performed "I Don't Care" at the 2006 Winter Olympics closing ceremony.
