Bruno Mars is not pleased with some of the nasty comments that were made leading up to his Super Bowl halftime performance. In fact, the singer is calling one particular comment “disgusting.”
On Monday, the “Locked out of Heaven” singer made an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show were he addressed the SB critics. When asked about the New York Times article, which stated that Mars wasn’t a star because he doesn’t have a fragrance or clothing line, the singer suggested that it was “the most disgusting thing he had ever heard.”
“Not because it was taking a shot at me. But I was thinking about aspiring musicians who want to do this,” he said.
The Grammy Award-winner then went into an impromptu speech about aspiring musicians and what his advice is to rising stars.
“Any young aspring young musicians out there: If music is what you want to do, if music is what you love and your passion, it doesn’t take a fragrance. It’s not about the tabloids, it’s about you putting in the work, practicing everyday, practicing your vocals, practicing your instrument, practicing song writing,” he said. “And hopefully one day you’ll write the song that the whole world wants to get down to. I promise you one day you’re gonna have your moment to shine and you’re going to have a lot of people saying that you can’t do it, and you’re not good enough. But I promise you if you go out there and sing and you put your heart and soul into it and you follow your dream one day you’re gonna be sitting next to Ellen DeGeneres talking about how you broke records and rocked the Super Bowl.”
