Hot Shot: Bruno Mars’ Super Sharp Billboard Cover

Published: Friday 28th Sep 2012 by Sam

Soul-Pop crooner Bruno Mars is gearing up to blaze the charts with ‘Locked Out Of Heaven’, the first single to be lifted from his fiercely anticipated sophomore album.

So what better way to kick off promotion than on the cover of music industry bible, Billboard Magazine.

Mars, who sold a million plus copies of his debut ‘Doo-Wops & Hooligans’ in both the US and UK (the latter being a huge feat), is set to premiere ‘Locked’ on Monday. Excited?

    “Bruno Mars
    Every time I see Bruno Mars, I think of Duckie in Pretty in Pink. Mars’ whole image is reminiscent of a cheesy hipster in a 1980s teen flick, who brings a guitar to school with him everyday and tries to get that frigid wallflower girl to go out with him by serenading her with stale little ditties.

    His music likes to masquerade itself as being breezy, sweet, romantic and genuine, but is actually a bunch of over the top and offensively melodramatic fluff. The lyrics to his songs are jam-packed with desperate cliches and/or trite pickup lines that attempts to pass themselves off as clever wordplay (“like a bullet straight through my brain…” The f*** is that?!) The hyperactive choruses to his songs, meanwhile, are grating…and the production of the actual tracks sounds like a bastardized blend of bad emo mixed with adult contemporary pop, and is very yawn-worthy.

    To put it simply: Bruno Mars is a dork who makes a Hallmark card seem edgy and is basically a faux-urban version of Chris Isaak for the Twitter generation. While I can appreciate that he seems like one of the few who does not play that overly synth-pop card that the Ke$ha’s and LMFAO’s of the music world continue to barf, he is the opposite extreme and it is as irritating. In 2012, we do not need this cheesy wedding singer on the radio.”
