    BRUNO MARS TALKS TO THE HERALD SUN

    The herald sun spoke to Bruno! Interview starts like this...

    What's the new album Unorthodox Jukebox all about?
    I wanted myself to like it. I wanted to be excited about the music I was creating. I wanted to experiment and get into the studio with guys I've always wanted to work with. I wanted to have fun.

    What kind of freedom did you have with this album, given the success of its predecessor, Doo-wops & Hooligans?
    I had the freedom the first time around. This is two years later. After I toured, I feel like I learned so much. The touring gave me freedom. When I was on stage, I started thinking about what I wanted to sing the next time around, what kind of lyrics I wanted to sing in the studio.

    Apparently, before Doo-wops & Hooligans, most record company bosses demanded that you stick to one lane.
    I was a young dude hearing that. I didn't understand. You think you can sing and you believe in your music. Then you have these big-head honcho presidents of labels telling you you'll never be nothin', basically. It was tough.
