Bruno Mars is one of the most famous musicians in the world, but he would give it all up if it meant he could have his late mother back in his life.
The singer's mum died suddenly of a brain aneurysm in 2013, aged 55.
"My life has changed,” says Bruno, 31. “She’s more than my music. If I could trade music to have her back, I would. I always hear her say, ‘Keep going and keep doing it.'
“You just gotta know that she’s with me everywhere I go. It’s something that you can’t imagine – the pain and the things that you keep going back to: ‘I wish I would’ve done this or said this.’ You just have to see life differently. It shows you the real importance of life. Nothing else matters in this world but family and your loved ones.”
He also revealed that he owes his early interest in music to his dad, Peter Hernandez.
“My whole sense of rhythm is because my dad was teaching me bongos as a kid,” he says. “He’s an old-school working musician, so that’s where the pinky rings come from, the patent-leather shoes, the suits, and the pompadour. It all stems from watching my father.”
