A very camera shy Bruno Mars and his girlfriend Jessica Caban were spotted leaving a local CVS in Los Angeles yesterday (February 11, 2014). Bruno rocked a Mickey Mouse shirt as the casually dressed couple tried to avoid the invasive paparazzi.
Mars recently paid a visit to Ellen DeGeneres‘ talk show and he bashed his Super Bowl critics.
“Yes, but you know, you may not have more than two albums, but you write hit after hit after hit,” DeGeneres said. “Every song that you write everyone knows your music; everyone sings along to your songs, you have beautiful songs. And what I could not believe, I didn’t talk about this with you backstage, but it’s hurtful because there were people that were saying and I know you listen to some of this which you should never listen to it, but the New York Times wrote an article saying that.”
“What they say?” Bruno interjected.
“You know, you know what they said, but they basically didn’t think he was a star,” DeGeneres explained. “They said he wasn’t a star because he wasn’t in the tabloids and he doesn’t have a fragrance…He’s not ready and it’s too big for him and he couldn’t do it and he pulled it off I think beyond what anybody…” Ellen said before Bruno fires back at the haters.
“I did. I did hear that and I think that was by far the most disgusting thing I think I’ve heard. Not because it was taking a shot at me, but I was thinking about aspiring young musicians who want to do this and even hearing the thought you need a fragrance or something like that is just is, you know what I would like to make a little speech and talk to them about this. Can I? Can I do that?”
There was also a lighter moment during Bruno’s appearance on the chat show, which involved one of Ellen’s famous pranks.
The video of Mars pranking an unsuspecting nurse that was filmed while the musician waited for his turn to come on set has gone viral.
The hilarious clip shows Bruno Mars talking to the nurse, who is supposedly treating him for a sore throat as he talks all the nonsense Ellen is speaking into his ear piece.
The funniest moments happen when Ellen goes silent and Bruno Mars is just sitting there in silence as well, the nurse looks confused.
