Bruno’s videos have been viewed a staggering 1 Billion times on U tube. Not bad since at one time he was dumped by a big record label. He is a musical melting pot of styles. He sings pop, rock and reggae style songs. He is a short guy who always wears a Fedora hat and today I am sure everyone is playing his songs and thinking about someone they love even if you have never even seen them.
Grenade and Just The Way You Are both reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart becoming two of the big bestselling singles of all time. His debut album sold 5 Million copies. He was Billboard’s Top Male Artist last year and recently he released his second album called Bruno Mars Unorthodox Jukebox. Buy the album for your lover today or just buy it for yourself and dream of your perfect lover on Valentine’s Day.
Bruno loved that part of the show and as early as at age 6 he was performing as little Elvis in the shows back in 1992. He has a cameo performing as Elvis in the movie Honeymoon In Vegas. After that he had the inspiration for the song, “I want To Be A Billionaire so Friggin’ Bad.” At age 18 he started a band called Sex Panther with his brother and moved to Los Angeles. They performed any place that would have them. Places like Pickwick’s Pub in LA’s San Fernando Valley.
He thought he had a deal with Motown Records and left Pickwick’s but it turned out that he was fired from Pickwick’s and Motown dropped him too without ever putting out an album. So, don’t feel sorry for yourself even a great guy like this had bad luck even when he had so much confidence in himself. It was the worst time of his life to have to call his Mom and Dad and tell them he was no longer a signed artist and he has to rethink his whole life as to what he is going to do with it.
Finally, Bruno got a label and with his Just The Way You Are song he won a Grammy one of 13 nominations over the past two years. So, now he is a rich star and someone many people love today. See, a good story on Valentine’s Day.
