That’s Magazine interview

Interview

That’s Magazine interviews Mars about work on his 3rd album and his creative process.

I want to write better songs, I want to put on better shows, I want to make better music videos. I want my next album to be better than the first and the second. I don’t sit down and think, I’m going to write a song. Inspiration hits me always unexpectedly, on a plane, when I’m out or just before I go to bed. An idea will suddenly come to my mind, and sometimes I manage to turn it into lyrics the next day. Sometimes it’ll take me one year to get something real out of it. You can’t force creativeness.

Jealous of Winehouse

Interview

In an Associate Press interview Mars talks about  how he was jealous of Amy Winehouse

I felt like everything I’ve been saying, everything I wanted to do, she did it… It was perfect.You couldn’t put it in a box ’cause it could be played on rock stations, it could be played on rhythmic stations, it could be played on pop radio, and I’ve always wanted to make music like that — that could be spread out, and can’t be pigeon-held to one thing.

And Unorthodox Jukebox:

I was not thinking about business or radio or politics, just doing what I love to do and that’s creating music. Whether it be a reggae song, rock song, a love song, the main thing was just to, whatever I was feeling, to try to capture that emotion.

I feel like you have to constantly keep proving yourself, and you have to constantly keep getting out there and showing them you’re more than just that one song on the radio that’s just playing. And that’s what I had to do the first time around; I had to keep going out there and keep performing live.

Bruno Mars interview

Seacrest interviews Mars during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and asks him if he has ever heard his music playing in the club.

We were in France or London and we were like, “Let’s go out!” We ended up going to this seedy, seedy strip club. So, all the band is out there and they got word that I was there and they said, “Ladies and gentlemen we got Bruno Mars here.” So, this poor girl had to go up on stage and dance to Just The Way You Are. It’s probably one of the worst songs to ever dance to in a strip club and she’s looking at me, and I’m just looking at her and I’m saying, “I’m sorry, I’m so sorry.”

I think I’m most excited for my fans to hear my voice again. It’s been a while and I’ve been hibernating in the studio. I just can’t wait for them to hear the music that I’m doing these days.

Bruno Mars interview

Seacrest interviews Mars during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about his single It Will Rain. 

The song is inspired by the movie, ‘Breaking Dawn.’ It’s a love story, but it’s a very dark love story. And I think that’s what I tried to do with this record. It really kind of captured that emotion and felt that struggle. I feel like they’re fighting to be together, and I know what that feels like.
