At the MTV VMA's Bruno performed "Gorilla" with the spotlight only being on him. Not so at his EMA performance of the same song.
It was nice to see the full band up on it this time. Both performances were stellar.-DocFB
Diagnosis: We hear the star is still up to his chain smoking ways backstage at the EMA's.....
Bruno Mars was set to release his new video "Gorilla" yesterday but delayed the video by a day, hyping it a little more. The sex scenes were a little steamy but were they...spicy?
With Rihanna releasing a stripper video for "Pour It Up" and Janelle Monae working in a futuristic strip club for "PrimeTime" Bruno's is not as raunchy as Rihanna, and not as safe as Janelle's.
His female fans have been wanting to see Bruno in some sexy scenes and for him, it is a first. With videos for "Just The Way You Are", Grenade", "Locked Out Of Heaven", "If I Was Your Man", and "Treasure", when he had love interests there was no affection shown. This time, there is.
The video is hot but lacks the creativity of "Treasure" and "If I Was Your Man" but perhaps in the spectrum of things, it is nice to know that Bruno is throwing his hat into the ring of wanting to be a sex symbol performer. His hardcore will argue that he has always been, but in this video, he makes it perfectly clear.-DocFB
Diagnosis: The stripper mentality hits Bruno as he makes a passionate video although they could have went in a different direction and made it just as sexy....
Lenny Kravitz rocked out with Bruno Mars last night in Paris and performed "Are You Gonna Go My Way" with the future Super Bowl Performer!
Lenny performed his classic with Bruno and his band.
Awesome to see these two artists perform together!-DocFB
Diagnosis: Bruno def got props with Lenny performing AYGGMY with his band!-DocFB
Bruno Mars is releasing his first video in 4 months tomorrow when "Gorilla" on
Monday October 14th! Update: Bruno delayed the video until Tuesday, October 15th!
You can catch the video here and on YouTube at 3 P.M. Eastern and 12 P.M. Pacific tomorrow!

We guess Bruno's scaly friend will be featured in the video.
With the spacing of the video's, (This is the 4th video from Unorthodox Jukebox) it looks like Mars plans on releasing a few more videos off the album. The first video "Locked Out Of Heaven" was released on October 15th, 2012.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Bruno Mar's success is a treasure. Pun intended...
Bruno Mars is set to perform at the Super Bowl XLVIII Halftime Show Feb. 2nd at Metlife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ.
The L.A. Times broke the news earlier today. The NFL will make the announcement tomorrow.
In recent years, the NFL chose safe acts as the halftime show, such as Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Who, and Bruce Springsteen. The past 2? Not so safe with Madonna and Beyonce.
On Thursday's episode of "What's Up Doc" we were wondering who would be the Super Bowl Halftime Show performer and Bruno Mars did not even cross our minds. We thought with the Super Bowl being in Jersey that Bon Jovi might be high on the NFL's wish list.
We think it is a great choice. Mars has had a lot of ballads as hits. It will have to be heavy with more upbeat numbers like "Locked Out Of Heaven" for sure....-DocFB
Diagnosis: What do you think of Bruno Mars being chosen to perform at the Super Bowl?
Bruno Mars performed his new single "Gorilla" at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday!
The 27 year old performer brought his A game for the performance for sure!
Here is the premiere of "Treasure" the new video by Bruno Mars!
Continuing of the flow of having his music videos look like they are back in the day, "Treasure" is a fun, funky, video by Bruno!
Bruno cut the 'fro down a little bit before he kicks off his tour later this month! It will be his first major arena tour.
It is cool how he has the grooves that sound so funky and from back in the day...but they are new and sample free!-DocFB
Diagnosis: No fools gold......
We are just finding out this morning that Bruno Mars' mother Bernadette Hernandez has died of a brain aneurysm. She was 55 years old.
The news broke via press release this morning from Atlantic Records. It was reported that Bernadette had a heart attack on Friday in Hawaii.
Bruno had an extremely close relationship to his mom and he cites the reason he has stopped using drugs is because of the embarrassment he felt by his mom when he was busted with cocaine possession in Las Vegas a few years ago. He has even tried "E" cigarettes recently to stop smoking for his mom.
Bruno Mars' first song he recorded was when he was four years old entitled "I Love You Mom" which is posted above.
Hernandez immigrated from the Philippines and wanted Mars's to stay family oriented.
Bruno's tour is scheduled to kick off later this month. No word yet of his mother's passing will effect the tour.
We are sending our thoughts and prayers to the entire Mars'/Hernandez family.-DocFB
Diagnosis: The proud mom below talking about her son....
Bruno Mars appeared on Ellen to perform "When I Was Your Man" which will be the first and only time he performs the song on TV.
It is a great performance of the song and kind of cool he will not be performing it everywhere. It seems when artists do the talk show run, they only perform their latest song and nothing else.
All you need to do is put Bruno in front of a piano and nothing else.
The song is number one for a reason.-DocFB
Diagnosis: One of the MUST see tours of the year!
