Your flunkies missed the apostrophe after the s in his last name. My kids started me listening to Bruno Mars' music, which is excellent. RIP to his mother, and peace to him and his family.

Poor guy. I can't imagine. I'm sure his fans would more than understand if he cancelled his tour.

I remember him saying he's no longer doing drugs because his mom was really mad about his drug bust a few years ago. I hope he keeps his words.

God bless you and your family Bruno!!! You have my deepest condolences. I was diagnosed last year with 3 cerebral aneurysms. The biggest one was clipped on May 11, 2012. During that surgery, I briefly died. There is a NEVER ending love on the other side!!! I didn't want to come back but the Angels told me it wasn't my time and I had to. Rest assured your mom is very happy....I know you and your family miss her deeply. Many blessings to ALL of you and LOTS of love!!! Take care!!!
