Net Worth: According to Celebrity Net Worth, in the first half of 2014, Bruno Mars had a net worth of 70 million USD.
Childhood: Bruno Mars was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii. His parents are of Puerto Rican and Filipino descent. He was given the nickname 'Bruno' as a child, after the wrestler Bruno Sammartino. Mars was one of six children and his family was a musical one. As a result, he grew up with a variety of music, such as Elvis Presley, The Isley Brothers and Michael Jackson. In 1992, he went on to have a cameo in Honeymoon in Vegas, starring James Caan and Nicolas Cage. After graduating from President Theodore Roosevelt High School, he moved to Los Angeles to pursue a musical career.
Career: Bruno Mars began his music career by writing songs for artists such as Alexandra Burke, Brandy and Sean Kingston. He also wrote Flo Rida's hit 'Right Round' and Sugababes' 'Get Sexy'. Two of his biggest co-writing credits were B.o.B's 'Nothin' on You' and Travis McCoy's 'Billionaire', both of which were top 10 hits around the world. Mars capitalised on his success as a songwriter by releasing his debut solo EP entitled 'It's Better If You Don't Understand' , which featured the single 'The Other Side', with B.o.B and Cee Lo Green on vocals. At the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards, Bruno Mars performed 'Airplanes' with B.o.B and Hayley Williams of the band Paramore. Bruno Mars' debut album, entitled Doo-Wops & Hooligans, was released in October 2010. The lead single, 'Just the Way You Are' performed well in the US charts. Damian Marley features on the track 'Liquor Store Blues'. Following the release of the album, Mars planned a tour with Maroon 5 as well as dates with Travie McCoy. In 2012, Mars released the album Unorthodox Jukebox to positive reviews.
Personal Life: In 2013, Mars was reported as the 12th richest musician in the world, due to his 18 million USD earnings.
The accompanying album will hit shelves in November.

Sometimes artists wear their influences on their sleeves.
Adele's new song 'Hello' has had the internet going crazy these past few weeks; people are excited for the release of her upcoming comeback album '25' and thus have this across-the-board number one on repeat. However, as with a lot of hit tracks, it hasn't been without its criticism and in this case people are commenting on the remarkable similarity to a Californian storyteller we all know and love.
Adele waves 'Hello' to Tom Waits with new single
The Tom Waits comparison has, in itself, been critized; but whatever people say, the fact can't be ignored that the lyrics to 'Hello' do bare remarkable parallels with Waits' 1973 song 'Martha'. Both dictate a phonecall to a long lost lover, reminiscing about their early days and reflecting on their young, foolish selves. It's not exactly a copy, merely a divine inspiration.

If true, it would be the second time that the 'Uptown Funk!' singer has had the honour, following his performance in the 2014 edition.
Following his spot on one of the biggest pop hits of all time in the last 12 months, R&B / pop star Bruno Mars has apparently been asked by the NFL to perform during the Super Bowl half-time show for the second time in his career, according to reports by multiple media outlets.
Since he last took on the prestigious honour in 2014, Bruno has featured on Mark Ronson’s ginormo-hit ‘Uptown Funk!’, which has been almost certainly the biggest hit of the decade so far and spent an incredible 14 weeks on top of the Billboard Hot 100. Insiders familiar with the situation are indicating on Wednesday (September 9th) that this extraordinary success has persuaded the NFL to extend their invitation for a second time.

Is this the first signs of the post-'Blurred Lines' legal ruling coming into effect?
The biggest selling single of the year so far has seen a significant change to its writing credits. Mark Ronson’s record-breaking ‘Uptown Funk!’ now includes the writers of The Gap Band’s 1979 hit ‘Oops Up Side Your Head’.
It’s not clear as to how this alteration came about – there have been no court cases or lawsuits in the offing – but five extra names are now included on Ronson’s hit, according to Music Week. They are The Gap Band’s three members Ronnie Wilson, Charles Wilson and Robert Wilson as well as producers Lonnie Simmons and Rudolph Taylor.

Mark Ronson is no stranger to the UK Singles Chart, but the surprising success of his collaborative hit with Bruno Mars, 'Uptown Funk', has seen him finally at number one - for a full seven consecutive weeks.

The funk-infused single has gone multi-Platinum since its release in November 2014, and became the first release from his number one fourth album 'Uptown Special'; an album which also featured collaborations with Stevie Wonder, Andrew Wyatt, Jeff Bhasker and Mystikal. His previous most famous single was his cover of The Zutons' 'Valerie' with the late Amy Winehouse; a much loved hit that surprisingly only reached number two in the UK, though with a Platinum certification.
