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

It is not as groundbreaking as "Skyscraper" but she flipped the switch and for that, we respect it and name "Heart Attack" our jam of the week!-DocFB

Demi Lovato released a lyric video for "Heart Attack", her latest single. Unlike recent lyric videos, she does not appear in the video at all. The song is from her upcoming release, "Blackout" set for release later this Spring.

The video is loaded with several hashtags for Twitter for fans to use.

This song sounds like it is going to be huge. With the video release and Billboard counting YouTube views, it will be surprising if "Heart Attack" does not hit number 1.-DocFB

Premiere: Demi Lovato Releases “Heart Attack” Listen Now!!!

Demi Lovato Heart Attack Cover Promo

Demi Lovato released "Heart Attack" last night and she puts on the pop face for those that might have been expecting the first single from her new release to be a ballad like "Skyscraper" was before.

There is the auto tune on the track she got flack for on "X Factor" last season.

"I think the image of the video, I'm taking on a different look this time around. I feel like I have my own thing going, like rocker-chic sophisticated, just a different kind of fashion style this time around."

"It's incredible that I get to incorporate [fashion] with my music, and it coincides. But a lot of the music video, I think, is going to be fashion-based but also performance-based. I really just like to rock out, especially in music videos when I can just have so many times where I can perform."

"The title is just about falling in love and taking that risk. But she's terrified, and by 'she,' I mean me. But I think everyone comes to a point where they feel very vulnerable in falling in love, and that's what I'm talking about."

We are sure the video will have high production value. No word if the video will star her current flame Wilmer Valderrama.

Demi is playing it safe but the song will be a huge hit. Just don't take too much time releasing a video.-DocFB

“I am deeply saddened by the loss of my dear friend Dick Clark. He has truly been one of the greatest influences in my life.

When I joined his show in 2006 , it was a dream come true to work with him every New Year's Eve for the last 6 years. He was smart, charming, funny and always a true gentleman. I learned a great deal from him, and I'll always be indebted to him for his faith and support of me. He was a remarkable host and businessman and left a rich legacy to television audiences around the world. We will all miss him.” - Ryan Seacrest.

Here is one of Michael Jackson's first interviews on "American Bandstand" with Dick Clark. It was with his brothers, the Jackson 5.

Gotta love how MJ just took Dick's microphone and made it his. Dick was being playful with Michael. Interesting that Michael said he is not shy.
