Bruno Mars at The Apollo Login/Join

Anyone else watch this last night? My wife is a big fan so we watched but were both disappointed. You're expecting a new variation of Michael Jackson or Prince when you just watch the moves but I thought the music was awful except for the last song. It was so generic or canned, almost like "Bruno Mars sings elevator music". For anyone familiar with funk, it certainly did not qualify.

Apparently, I was the only one dumb enough to tune in.

His music is cheesy to me. Great for a corporate record label but he is just another Britney Spears or whatever, real bad pop music.

I watched it. Except for Uptown Funk and Just The Way You Are, I quickly tune out his songs and they don't really stand out to me and grab your attention.

His talented at dancing in the same way the Elvis was - more like hip movements to get the ladies hot. He's pretty talented though in instruments like he can play drums.

He can do with better original songs that grab your attention.

ETA: I know he's trying to brand himself with that short pants look but he needs classier clothes too.



"It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life – daily and hourly. Our answer must consist not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual." Viktor Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning, 1946.

He was known as Peter Hernandez from a family of Hawaiian lounge acts and had bounced around various record labels. After changing his name and focusing on pop/R&B, labels signed him to larger contracts and thus Bruno Mars was born. He's largely manufactured, no doubt talented singer but, a corporate singer that's learned to play the game.
