While Bruno Mars has proven himself to be a consistently nice guy in the public arena, he's gone through his fair share of not-so-peachy moments. Bruno sat down for an extended interview with Piers Morgan on Friday for the former tabloid editor's CNN show, Piers Morgan Tonight.
Piers brought up the uncomfortable subject of Bruno's cocaine bust in Las Vegas, which happened back in 2010. While Bruno visibly tensed up at the subject, he answered the question with humility and insisted that the embarrassing incident was a one-time mistake that he hoped would be put behind him for good. So far, so good. He's definitely not turned into a Lindsay Lohan or Bobby Brown.
Bruno also touched on his brief stint as a Motown Records signee back in 2004. He was later quietly dropped. Again, being extremely gracious, Bruno said it wasn't really Motown's fault, as he claims he "wasn't ready" yet. Not so sure that the record execs at Motown feel the same. They're probably more sour than grapefruit about missing out on the best thing that they briefly had.
