Bruno Mars was recently award the title of “Artist of the Year 2013” by Billboard.com and has spoken in an interview with the publication.
The ‘Treasure’ singer spoke with Billboard.com about who he turns to for advice when he’s writing music and also spoke about what he hopes for the future.
Bruno Mars has had great success with his second studio album ‘Unorthodox Jukebox’ which was released last year (2012) and featured such hits as ‘Treasure’, ‘Locked Out Of Heaven’ and ‘Gorilla’.
The singer-songwriter spoke in the interview with Billboard.com and said that his “dream” was to never have a real “day job”.
He said: “My dream was to not get a day job but to sleep, wake up and do my music.
“And hopefully, my music does all the talking. I want to keep that dream forever. That’s it. That’s what I love to do.”
Bruno Mars also admitted that many believed that he would only be a one hit wonder and that he just got lucky with his first hit:
He explained: “People were saying, ‘Man, the second album is the most important because there’s the sophomore jinx.’ Or, ‘Did he get lucky? Will he be able to do it again?’
“I’m like, ‘Where is this coming from?’ I didn’t know whether people or radio was going to like it.
He continued: “I just knew that I need to love it, that I gave it everything. That’s the feeling I tried for with every song I put on this album and with everything I write.”
Bruno Mars also opened up about a potential new album and added that he’s content about performing his current material:
“There’s going to be a point on the tour where I’ll wish I had a new song or 10 more songs to sing. That’s when the excitement comes back and you start working that muscle, ready to get back into the studio.”
He added: “But I’m good right now. If you put me in the studio, I don’t know what I’d come up with, because I’m so enjoying this moment right now.”
