Imo, only chic and janet are confirmed. I see Charlie as an interesting inside scoop. I'd bet Bruuuunski has dozens of songs he started but didin't finish. :wink:

It's expected because he wasn't showing up in the first place. Drake didn't win too. :lol: :lol: :lol:

^True, he only has two VMA's so far. I would be happy if he had won one at least, but tbh I'm starting to get less interested in these award shows...I guess it's something it comes with age :lol:

On the same note he is pre-nominated for Favorite Artist or International Group on Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards Argentina.

A very unexpected thing happened: as soon as he went out of prison, @KodakBlack1k hit the studio with @BrunoMars! Is a duet coming?

Mars won't be a featured guest on the Chic new album, according to the tracklisting circulating. So he must be a producer/writer on one of the songs...on top of this Chic will release another album early next year, around February. Nile Rodgers might add one or another cut that he Mars composed as he had to leave several out of this album.

The VMAs lost credibility since they only award those who attend the show. :-? :-?

I don't necessarily believe rumors like that, but I'm not crazy about a Madonna collab either... I just can't see their styles match well.

I'm mad that he doesn't release his concerts anymore. He should make a deal with Netflix or there should be a streaming platform which broadcasts concerts.

Bruno Mars is being lined up to play Prince in a movie about the tragic star’s life.

The funky singer has been approached about portraying the Purple Rain legend, right, in a Netflix biopic.

Bruno, 32, is a huge Prince fan and gave a top tribute when he sang Purple Rain at last year’s Grammy awards.

A Netflix movie source said: “Bruno says it will probably be the most nerve-racking move of his career if it happens

“Prince was one of his idols so to be asked to take on a hefty role like that especially as a debut acting move is full-on.

Prince's home was littered with pills when police investigated his death, newly released documents reveal
“The offer has come out of the blue. Bruno used to love acting when he was younger but it’s not an avenue he’s explored.”
