I saw this movie/documentary last night Queen of Versailles and first off the woman looked like this (below), accidentally killed lizards, was super duper rich and then turned super rich, and was in the processes of building the largest house in America obviously inspired by the actual palace of Versailles, all while married to a man who was 30 years older than her.
Why am I telling you all of this, well one, I wanted to tell you that I saw this movie and it’s so ridiculous please go see it because it’s so unbelievably thought-provoking and I’m obsessed with the lives of rich people, and two, because Bruno Mars bought a really nice house that I want him to invite me to move in with him.
I’m a great roomie— always do the dishes, never party and I totally know how to use a swifter.
This 3.3 million dolla dolla home can fit about 17 of my apartments in it, a media room, fitness room, a pool, a sauna, and more stuff that would never be in your house.
What does one hottie tottie do after spending $3.3 million on a home? Well, not much because you can’t afford a pot to piss in (my father has said that ever since I started listening to him and I still have no idea what the hell that means) but you can go get a McMuffin.
I Just Saw Photos That Made Me Realize Why Bruno Mars & I Can’t Have Babies. Thanks A Lot 2012 Met Ball!

(Ok last Met Ball post. I promise. Maybe)
He has a curly fro.
I forgot about the curly fro. He usually masks it in a Fedora (that only he can pull off, so all you other guys take off the hat because you look demented and no girl will date you if you wear that as an actual accessory. The only thing you’re accessorizing is your lack of intelligence), or in a perfectly bouffant hair coif, but he let the fro out this time.
I can’t have half Italian/half Hawaiian babies with extremely curly hair. That kid will be mocked for the rest of his/her life.
But I appreciate Bruno Mars rocking the hair at the Met Ball. He looks handsome. Maybe we could just date for a few months and have a bad break up??
He’s obviously in NYC , so I better get my stalk on because he’s dapper.

I’m about to tell you my deep dark secret. I have x-ray vision. THERE! IT’S OUT!!!
Actually, I just brought one of those plastic re-sealer things people use for potato chip bags into the bodega and read the Playboy for free. I risked my freedom for you guys; I could’ve went to jail.
This is what that genius man above had to say about his influences, people he’d like to work with (spoiler: they’re all dead), and his music:
On the musicians he looked up to growing up: “Growing up in the showbiz world, I looked up to those guys: Frank Sinatra and of course Elvis Presley. My dad was into the 1950s doo-wop era. If you look at those groups, or at James Brown, Jackie Wilson and the Temptations in the 1960s, you’ll see you had to be sharp onstage.”
On the musician he’d most like to work with if he could: “Jimi Hendrix. I think he’s the greatest guitar player in the world, and I would want to see him do his thing in person. He’s the reason I picked up a guitar in the first place.”
On his music: “My album is called Doo-Wops & Hooligans, but it’s not a 1950s ‘Earth Angel’ sound like you hear in Grease-type movies. I could sing you a thousand and one doo-wop songs. I love the simplicity in that music. It’s not superpoetic, it’s just from the heart.”
I just want to high five him and share a bag of skittles with him… in or out of bed. I’m still not tossing out the idea of ‘half Italian/half Hawaiian-even though he’s not Hawaiian’ babies.
But I didn’t.
I know… what kind of journalist am I?? Now CNN will never take me *sob*
Anyway, Mr. Mars is on the cover of Playboy this month and fun fact… he’s only the 10th male in history to ever be on the cover of Playboy. RECORD BREAKER BOO YAH!
Now, I have no idea what the interview inside of the magazine was about because these kinds of magazines are in government plastic so I can’t read them freely at Barnes & Noble, but I assume Bruno just said how he’s a giant fan of The Revolution, and how his dream interview would be orchestrated by me, and that he wishes I’d let him write a song about me.
Probably something along those lines and how he’s in the studio working on his 2nd album which will be even more amazing than Doo Wops & Hooligans.
PS I challenge him to come up with an even better album title than that.
Whoo! I got so carried away with Lee Bear and Interview Jamboree, I almost neglected Bru Bru (this is why we had to end things a few months ago)
Mr Bruno Mars won some awards, performed like a mofo, and looked like the Hawaiian Lion himself (he said it, not me) at the 2012 Brit Awards.
He won Best International Male Star which is pretty much winning Best Male International James Bond because that tux really does it for him. And plus, he’s in London… the British accent just makes you an international spy/man of mystery. Trust me.
I mean, come on! I know you all agree with me that he’s one charming dude. And funny. Who doesn’t love a short joke?
But for realsies… Mr. Mars performed “Just The Way You Are” with a blow out that makes my heart melt. This song is about 7 years old, but it sounds brand new with his lounge-y, big band, doo wop, he’s the best ever, style.
High five, Bru Bru!
Dare I say.. out of this world??
I stole that joke from another blog, FYI.
So that happened… and to prove my love is real, I’m still saying all this after I see this:
That’s Mr. Mars sans hat/ sand blow out.
Even though we could never have straight-haired, half italian/half I just grew up in Hawaii but am not actually Hawaiian babies, I still love him.
I’m such an adult.
That statement has never been more true. I saw this magazine cover and thought, “who is this guy??” for a brief second. But I guess that’s just because he’s not obnoxious and on every magazine cover thanks to his obvious divorce.
(And yes I speak of Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony. I can now just go on believing he’s actually skelator and she drinks the virgin blood of young Latina women. No one should be shocked by this divorce. I can only pray this makes her a total bitch on Idol next year and he never shows up on the show to talk about ear monitors…. that way we will all benefit from this)
He has a precious face. He’s back to being my boyfriend…. until Prince Harry comes around of course.
On fame: “When people fall is when they’re like, ‘OK. Now I’m here, what’s next? A clothing line?’ That’s not what I’m trying to do. It’s like, ‘Don’t be a slut. Remember your dream. Do you music and keep it special.’”
I give him until next year to have a cologne called Grenade, which will be awesome!
Devin: I thought he was blacker for some reason
Devin: I don’t like this song.
Rocco: I think he’s so cool.
Bruno. Really. Be cooler. I just heart him. I’m not even going to make fun of his rust colored denim vest.
I know… that title is so creative. I can’t tell you my secret… or I’d have to kill you.
Here is Bruno Mars’ latest video for “The Lazy Song”.
I like this video.
Normally, I’d make rat pack jokes and slam somebody for wearing the ridiculous fedora hat. But, I’ve decided (so it’s totally official) that he is the only person that can wear it, pull it off, and not look like a complete moron.
See what I mean?? He can kinda pull it off right??
I think my Grandpa-pa has those glasses by the way and either Bruno Mars is dipping into the 1930′s time capsule or all of a sudden, the old man I know, just catapulted himself to the cool of 2011.
