Alright, so here’s the thing. I do tend to get obsessions in regards to male celebs… I have been known to stalk John Legend over the years. Whatever, don’t judge he’s incredible — you should stalk as well.
What I love about Bruno Mars is that he was so steadfast in his determination to be in the music business, in any way shape or form. It wasn’t until very recently that I found out JUST how many songs he himself wrote, such as Cee Lo’s new song, “Forget You”. He began singing, when I say as a little tot I mean it — he was video taped performing a Michael Jackson beat in an Elvis attire at the age of 5. To say he’s been a goal oriented person is a bit of a understatement in this case. The success he’s landed in is much less coincidental and more a result of his extremely long lasting pursuit of being a singer.
He is also one of the only singers and I mean this, who is able to truly sing EXACTLY the same when in a studio or performing live on a stage. He is an incredibly talented musician and singer who doesn’t need heavy instrumentals to make him a chart topper — his soulful songs and sex appeal are enough to do it for him.
His latest performances on SNL and Ellen honestly were unreal – I have watched and re-watched and then perhaps watched again. His voice is rustic and sultry and his extremely white smile doesn’t make the situation worse that’s all I’ll add on the matter.
On his latest album Doo-Wops and Hooligans, some of my favorite top picks include:
