Biography

Amed with a silky smooth voice and an arsenal of swagger, Bruno Mars first entered the music scene by writing and producing infectious pop songs for a variety of commercially successful artists such as rapper Flo Rida and singer Cee Lo Green. Mars' genre-bending musical style combined soulful hooks, rock-tinged melodies, and hip-hop beats, which created a unique and modern sound embraced by critics and music lovers. He eventually climbed to the top of the charts with his own hit "Just the Way You Are," the lead single off his eponymous debut LP, Doo-Wops & Hooligans (2010). The album earned the talented and charismatic Mars worldwide acclaim, and established his versatile and marketable presence in the music industry.

Bonus Trivia

.

"Jimi Hendrix. I think he's the greatest guitar player in the world, and I would want to see him do his thing in person. He's the reason I picked up a guitar in the first place." – Mars on which musician, living or dead, he would most like to work with, quoted in Playboy, April 2012

.

Mars was arrested on Sept. 19, 2010 in Las Vegas, NV for possession of cocaine. The singer pled guilty to felony drug possession, and in return for his plea, he was told that the charges would be erased from his criminal record as long as he stayed out of trouble for a year, paid a $2,000 fine, worked 200 hours of community service, and completed a drug counseling course.
