Favorite Quotes from Bruno Mars
“I can’t even speak Hawaiian, but if you go there and listen to a Hawaiian song, you get captured because it’s so beautiful like the melody is just gorgeous and you know Bob Markley is on the radio every single day.” – Bruno Mars
“It’s just all love. That’s what music is. That’s why music is created. To make people feel good, to uplift people. That’s what musicians are for: to give everyone an escape, to let everyone feel good and take people out of everyday problems so that they can hear music and sing words that are hopefully relatable.” – Bruno Mars
“I write a lot of songs about being in love, how beautiful women are but I’ve definitely experienced that other side of love where you’re in a situation where you love a girl so much but you just know for a fact that she doesn’t love you the same. “Grenade” is the extreme way of saying “I’d do anything for you and why can’t I feel you would do the same for me?” – Bruno Mars
“You know, when Michael Jackson does the moonwalk, he’s showing off! When Prince or Hendrix do a guitar solo, it’s confidence! I would hate to be at a show and some nervous wreck is sweating up there and doesn’t feel like he deserves to be there.” – Bruno Mars
“I watch the best. I’m a big fan of Elvis. I’m a big fan of 1950s Elvis when he would go on stage and scare people because he was a force and girls would go nuts! You can say the same thing for Prince or The Police. It’s just guys who know that people are here to see a show, so I watch those guys and I love studying them because I’m a fan.” – Bruno Mars
