Bruno Mars, a former Hawaii child entertainer and rising music industry star, was arrested and released on cocaine-related charges in Las Vegas, police said.

Mars, whose real name is Peter Hernandez, was detained in the bathroom of a Hard Rock Hotel Casino by hotel security about 2:00 a.m. Sunday, according to a report in the Las Vegas-Review Journal. Las Vegas police said Hernandez was in possession of 2.6 grams of "white powdery substance" believed to be cocaine. He was booked on cocaine possession charges and released a few hours later on his recognizance.

Mars, 24, is known for singing and for co-writing the hits "Nothin' On You" by B.o.B and "Billionaire" by Travie McCoy. He also co-wrote "Right Round" by Flo Rida. Earlier this month, the record label Elektra announced his tune "Just the Way You Are" was the most downloaded song on iTunes.

He performed a medley of songs on MTV's Video Music Awards earlier this month with B.o.B. and Hayley Williams of Paramore.

He headlined a show at the Hard Rock Saturday night.

Mars, Roosevelt High School graduate, performed in many local venues as a youth, starting as an Elvis impersonator at age 4. As a teenager, he performed as Michael Jackson at the Waikiki Beachcomber Hotel. Mars moved to Los Angeles in 2002 to pursue his entertainment career.

On the title of the album, Mars said, "I’m a big fan of doo-wop music. ... That’s what you call your girl, your "doo-wop." ... On this album, I have records that women are going to relate to and men are going to relate to. So doo-wops are for the girls, and hooligans are for the guys."[6] In addition, he told 4Music, "It explains the two sides of me. Doo-wop is a special form of music I grew up on. It's straight to the point, very simple. I have songs like that. ... I have that simple, romantic side of me but I'm also just a young, regular dude and that's like the hooligan side!"[7]

“I can’t believe that’s my past,” Mr. Mars said in an interview before his first solo New York performance, a sold-out show at the Bowery Ballroom in late August. “I wish I could tell you me and my rock band were traveling around, strung out. No, we were a family band. Straight Partridge Family.”

Didn't know he played drums. Dug that. Dug most of his set, actually. But ugh, fuck the fucking RHCPs and their awful, fundamentally unfunky drummer.

Actually, "unfunky" is too kind. He's negative-funky.

I was surprised that I did recognize a couple of BM's tunes from hearing out there in the ether, he's def a good performer/entertainer but an accurate James Brown impression isn't exactly artistic greatness, but he was like fine.

The switch over to RHCP was just weird. I am happy to report my social media feeds erupted into a bunch of Fishbone jokes and it continued when I went over to my local p-word bar afterward.

I know I'm a big music nerd etc etc but I don't really understand how you can have TEN top 5 songs within a 3 year period (with seven as lead artist) and still have ppl going "who is that"

Is Bruno really as diminuative as Prince? (5'2"?)

A friend mentioned that she'd seen Bruno and Bieber in the same room and Bieber towered over him, even though both their hairs were similarly pumped up to gain a couple inches.

He was pretty good hosting Saturday Night Live awhile back. Some folks who never listen to pop hits radio or don't notice such songs elsewhere I think discovered him there.

lol when rhcp were added it was noted it was specifically for the older generation who might not be familiar w/ bruno mars. i was somewhat surprised when they announced bruno mars but not incredibly so, knew he would do well, dude is a total entertainer. you have to wonder if timberlake's name came up during meetings or if nobody even dared to suggest him.

Andy Gill (?!) produced their first.

my CD copy of Entertainment! has liner notes by Flea which iirc consist mostly in him calling The Edge a piece of shit for never acknowledging the influence of Andy Gill on his guitar playing.

Merdeyeux, Monday, 3 February 2014 17:11 (8 months ago) Permalink

which is absurd cuz edge has frequently when asked his guitar influences listed gill, levene, and verlaine. i can remember rolling stone doing some interview w/ him where the writer kept trying to get him to talk about eric clapton and edge politely pointing out he was too young for clapton really and generally tried to copy go4, etc as a kid.

OK Fine, then his career may be at halt for some time. Lady Gaga, Robyn and even David Guetta all have a much more positive influence on current chartpop than Bruno Mars does with his way too compressed long-bassnotes-and-drummer-going-bananas-like-crazy-style, so that is probably just a good thing.
