Bruno Mars has roots in Puerto Rico and the Philippines, but was born in Hawaii. He comes from a musical family and his role models were Michael Jackson and Elvis Presley. He lives in Las Vegas and at the age of 32, has had a rather stormy and unusually interesting life.
In 2010, the media was full of news about the scandal of his arrest for possession of cocaine. But more important than this is his music, which has earned him fans all around the world. He has shared the stage with famous artists such as Ellie Goulding. How is this possible? His songs are positive, catchy and his videos are quite fun. In short, Bruno Mars is entertaining!
