As you skim over the newsstands, you’ll see singer-songwriter Bruno Mars looking dapper on the cover of GQ.
Inside the April 2013 issue, the fedora wearing singer-songwriter talks music, hard it is to make a big song, and shares his thoughts on what makes a song great. He also talks about his kiddy days as the youngest Elvis impersonator:
On what make qualifies a song as great:
Shit. For me? Hypnotize me in the very first three seconds, wake my ear plate up, give me something that I haven’t felt before…and then punch me in the f*cking face.
On impersonating Elvis in his father at age 4:
I don’t remember much. I probably couldn’t even speak that much. But I was f–king great at it. …It was like turning into Batman. I’d go to school and kids are calling me Peter and we’re playing baseball and kickball and shit, and then—‘All right, guys, I’ve got to go!’—you put on a sequined jumpsuit, and all of a sudden you’re Bruno, the world’s youngest Elvis impersonator!
