Check out this great interview (transcript & video) from Bruno with CNN.com! Bruno speaks on his brand new album “Doo-Wops & Hooligans” (In stores now) as well as his rise to fame & lots more.
CNN: It seems as though you were somewhat of an overnight success, but most artists have a hard luck story.
Bruno Mars: I came to California and got signed at a young age. And it’s not like you see in the movies, where you start rubbing shoulders with Timbaland and Pharrell, and you become a giant pop star. I just wasn’t ready yet. I was too young, and I didn’t walk into the label with any product.
CNN: You actually got your break behind the scenes, writing for other people and producing them.
Mars: Because the artist thing wasn’t happening, me and my partner Philip Lawrence — we write everything together — we were so broke. I said, “Phil, I think we should really start getting in the production side of things, because I can play, I can come up with chords. We can do this.” And he said, “Let’s go.” (Besides writing the hooks on “Nothin’ on You” and “Billionaire,” they also lent their skills to K’naan’s World Cup anthem, “Wavin’ Flag” and Cee Lo’s recent viral smash, “F**k You!”)
CNN: Do you ever wish you’d held those songs back for yourself?
Mars: There’s always a bittersweet kind of thing, but I feel like everything had to work out the way it is. Everything that had to happen, happened.
