The music industry’s top bebopper covers the April issue of GQ and reveals details on his cocaine bust and songwriting inspiration — SEX!
When GQ asked him to reflect on his 2010 bust in a hotel bathroom, Mars explains, “I was young, man! I was in f*cking Vegas. I wasn’t thinking. I was given a number one record and I’m out doing dumb sh*t.”
At the time, the singer told police it was his first time he had used drugs, something he now admits was a lie: “I don’t know where that came from. I was really intoxicated. I was really drunk. So a lot of that is a big blur, and I try every day to forget and keep pushing.”
His latest hit song “Locked Out of Heaven”, which, like much of the album Unorthodox Jukebox, is about sex. Mars explains, “It feels good to sing about. It feels… sexy. It puts you in a sexy frame of mind. It feels good to project,” adding, “Sex is a great party starter.” No argument there.
Asked for the secret to a good song, Mars says, “Sh*t. 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.”
So Mars is an undercover bad boy. Does that make him more or less intriguing? Check out full spread below and full interview on GQ.com.
