Bruno Mars (born Peter Gene Hernandez, 8.10.1985)
Bruno Mars is an American singer-songwriter and music producer, perhaps best known for co-writing 'Nothin' on You' by B.o.B.
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.

Hundreds of people were left outside the Barclaycard Arena after self-printed tickets for the rear standing area failed to scan.
Hundreds of Bruno Mars fans were left “raging” after they were left locked out of his gig for several hours at Birmingham’s Barclaycard Arena this week, following a malfunction with the turnstiles.
Disgruntled fans, who had shelled out between £43 and £85 to see the American singer performing the first of two gigs in Birmingham on his 24K Magic World Tour on Monday (April 24th) and had queued for up to three hours already, were left fuming at several further hours’ worth of delays entering the venue because some tickets wouldn’t scan on the automated turnstiles correctly.

Bruno Mars would ''trade'' music to resurrect his late mother who died in 2013 aged 55 years old.
Bruno Mars would ''trade'' music to resurrect his late mother.
The 31-year-old singer - who last his parent Bernadette Dan Pedro Bayot in 2013 aged 55 - has admitted his mum is ''more than'' his music and he would gladly trade his music, and all of his hits just to be back by his side.
Speaking to Latina.com, the dark-haired hunk said: ''My life has changed. She's more than my music. If I could trade music to have her back, I would.''

Having reportedly sold over 100 million records, Bruno Mars must be considered amongst the elite of global pop superstars. The release of this, his third album, will be supported by a huge UK tour starting in April 2017, which includes an impressive four nights at London's O2 Arena.
That Mars kicks off the album an upbeat number comes as no surprise, but the funk-dance of hybrid of the title track fails to really lift off. He continues the vibe with 'Chunky', but it is 'Perm' that is the first cut that genuinely impresses, propelled by his vocal flow. The hooks of 'That's What I Like' are undeniable, but R'n'B seduction it is not - telling the focus of your attention that they're lucky because of what you like is beyond arrogance. Much better is the smooth 'Versace On The Floor', while 'Finesse' adds little more to an initially interesting groove.
Thankfully the apologetic 'Too Good To Say Goodbye' sees Mars back on top of his game for a soulful finale, but being the ninth track there feels to be something amiss. If this was a classic collection comprising of only brilliance, you could understand, but it isn't. For an artist of such standing and sales figures, you expect more of the magic promised in the title, but instead we have delusions of grandeur.
Seriously? These guys have never been named Sexiest Man Alive?
So Dwayne Johnson was named People's Sexiest Man Alive this year; a decision that has been the source of both praise and confusion. Praise because he's an excellent role model with enormous muscles and because he's mixed race, and confusion because all the obvious choices haven't been exhausted yet.
Here are ten more Hollywood heartthrobs who deserve to be named 'Sexiest Man Alive' sooner rather than later.

His latest '24K Magic' track.
Bruno Mars has unveiled yet another tune from his eagerly anticipated third studio album '24K Magic' out this Fall. 'Versace On The Floor' is a romantic ballad that follows the release of the title track and 'Chunky', which he performed on 'Saturday Night Live' last month.
Bruno Mars unveils new track 'Versace On The Floor'
Recorded at Glenwood Place, Burbank, California, '24K Magic' has been in the works since Bruno completed his Moonshine Jungle Tour in 2014. He unveiled the title track in early October, his first single release in three years, and has apparently been hitting the studio with everyone from Mark Ronson and Jeff Bhasker to Skrillex and Andrew Wyatt. He's also been working with Grammy-winning songwriter and producer James Fauntleroy, as well as hip hop collective The Stereotypes.

In a radio interview on Tuesday, Mars said he was initially put off by Adele's attitude when they worked together for 'All I Ask'.
Nearing the end of a massively successful and lucrative tour supporting a similarly massive and lucrative album, Adele has the whole world in the palm of her hand at the moment.
However, one person didn’t quite think she was all she was cracked up to be – at least on first impression. Bruno Mars recalled that, when he worked with her while co-writing the song ‘All I Ask’ for her album 25, she was a “diva” – and not in a good way!

The accompanying album will hit shelves in November.

Bruno Mars unveils '24K Magic'
