Now listen I’m putting all my feelings aside because as a REAL and not just a recent Bruno Mars fan, I know he doesn’t appropriate black culture. But these most recent claims will open up a dialogue that I would like to have with yall about this “WOKE CULTURE” that has been going on for a while now!
For you guys living under the rock or just simply minding yo business lemme fill yall in. So Bruno Mars received NUMBEROUS Grammys this season for his work, 24K MAGIC which in my opinion was well deserved and quite frankly over due! So a young lady decided to post a video from a debate….I use that term loosly cause it seemed more like an argument stating that Bruno Mars has appropriated black culture and why doesn’t Bobby Brown have a Grammy? She said a bunch more but it’s not important because for me she is engulfed in that “fictional woke culture” and i’ll explain what I mean by that.
To be conscious of you black-ness and aware of your heritage and ancerstry is a beautiful thing. Then you have people who have taken that and BLOWN that shit to smithereens and called it “BEING WOKE”. I made a post a while ago about how some of these woke ass people need to take a nap cause CLEARLY they too damn woke! (yes that’s a thing) These are the people who cant separate appropriation and appreciation. I would like to direct your attention to the dictionary definition of “appropriation”
noun: appropriation; plural noun: appropriations.
the action of taking something for one’s own use, typically without the owner’s permission or acknowledgment.
So with this new found knowledge, I would like to direct your attention to an interview Bruno did back in 2017 for Latina Magazine.
“When you say “black music” understand that you are talking about rock, jazz, R&B, reggae, funk, doo-wop, hip-hop and Motown. Black people started it all. Being Puerto Rican, even salsa music stems back to the Mother Land [Africa]”
So I can just leave this blog here cause my point is proven and quite frankly has been proven since Bruno Mars first album where you can hear these genres in his music! But I just wanna fire off on the WOKE PEOPLE for about one paragraph.
YALL ALWAYS WANNA PULL THE APPRORPATION CARD BUT DON’T WANNA GO SUPPORT THE ARTIST WHO MAKE THIS BLACK MUSIC YOU SPEAK OF! WHY YOUR FAVORITE R&B SINGERS FLOPPING! I’LL TELL YOU WHY CAUSE BITCH YOU AINT BUYING THEY ALBUMS! YOU MAD CAUSE SOMEBODY WHITE, MIXED OR ANYTHING ELSE THAT AINT BLACK AIN’T SELLING OUT AND THE FIRST THING YOU WANNA YELL IS APPROIATION OR RACISM!
Ok lemme un-caps lock cause I was pissed. Listen I support all music. Brandy is one of my favorite vocalist but guess what, she can’t sell a album to save her life and it’s fucked up. That doesn’t make her any less talented, any less capable it just means mother fuckers aint buying her music. THATS NOT HER FAULT.
What would make ya’ll feel better. If Bruno Mars got a tan? Do ya’ll want him on the next Black Panther soundtrack? I know ya’ll would flip if he did black face! I just wanna know what ya’ll expect for him to do? If you one of those people, leave a comment and let us know. But I want Bruno and the Hooligans who have been apart of his life from the beginning, WE GOT YO BACK BRUNO!

YAL BETTER LEAVE MY BROTHER CHRIS BROWN ALONE AND I MEAN RIGHT THE FUCK NOW! Now I know we haven’t seen eye to eye in the past all the time but since 2005 Chris been my brother in my head and ya’ll not gone drag him like he aint the only male artist from his era that’s still selling albums and actually got talent!
Ok now that I’ve got that off my chest….Chris tweeted that Rihanna, Bruno, Beyoncé and himself should go on this Crazy World Tour. Now here’s the thing Chris and I’m talking directly to you. Who the hell is paying for all that star power in one room. I’m over here in a lease that I’m trynna break to move the fuck out. Lets do some simple math!
According to our good Judy’s over at CelebrityNetWorth.com Beyoncé is worth a smooth 500M…Rihanna 245M….Chris Brown 35M….and Bruno 110M. That’s damn near $900M in One arena. For shits and giggles lets find the largest arena in the US. Rupp in Lexington, KY holds 24,500. So if we fill all of those seats and I mean EVERY SEAT…We still owe yall asses 855M! So hypothetically speaking we’ll start tickets at 1,000. 24,500×1,000=245M. THATS NOT EVEN HALF CHRIS! THIS WILL NEVER WORK!
Maybe ya’ll can convince an award show to let yall all perform We are The World or something like that! A little more tangible cause Chris it aint gone work! I’m sorry bro! Is ya’ll about to take out another mortgage on ya’ll house to see this once in a fairytale lifetime show?
I love you guys for reading!
IDGAF what Bruno Mars does. He can tap dance in the desert and I’ll watch it and get my life. The music video for his hit single “Versace on the Floor” was just released featuring the ICONIC Zendaya who I absolutely adore; the video is SOOOOOOOOOOO sexy!
Hell the song is sexy as hell. But the gag is, Zendaya is fully dressed the entire video and yet it still was the hottest video I’ve seen this year! Bruno made some magic with this video and I want that shirt he has on but since I’m sure, excuse ME, SURE I can’t afford it, my Walmart is on the floor right now!!! Get into the video below and as always
I love you for watching
I don’t know when ya’ll gone take me seriously ok! I told ya’ll last week on 11/18/16, my Librarian ass would be in the nearest Target PROMTLY at 8 AM to open the store and also to purchase the new Bruno Mars cd AND SIS!!!
9 TRACKS, 10$ AND MY LIFE AND EDGES JUST TAKEN AWAY!
I’ve said it before and on numerous of occasions but some people think I be playing. BRUNO MARS IS TRUE ARTISTRY! This 24K Magic album is so damn good! Like that’s 3 for 3 at this point. EVERY ONE OF THESE SONGS COULD EASILY BE A TOP 20 MINIMUM SINGLE! As if the lead single “24K Magic” wasn’t enough, then he hits us with “Versace on the Floor” PLUS 7 OTHER SONGS OF LIFE.
If you’re under 20 yrs. old disregard this part cause unless you’re a music buff, you gone be like WTF is he talking about. Everybody else listen to this part. If you didn’t get the actual album out of store you missed this. Ya’ll remember the way EVERY Motown album looked back in the day. THAT’S WHAT HIS CD LOOKS LIKE! IDKY back in the day all they CDs looked the same. It made things really confusing for kids like me who was trying to steal CDs from their parents! But anyway.
The album is so heavily influenced by the 80’s music and Motown. You hear it in EVERY song and I think that what makes this album so great. It has such a beautiful flow! And his voice is just butter. There’s a ballad I’m listening to right now actually called “Too Good to Say Goodbye” that just shows how amazing his range is. There is a slew of other tracks that just make you wanna go to the club house and twerk!
If you haven’t already ya’ll better go check this album out! Its available in stores now and online too! And you already know
I love you for reading!
My wigs are never safe when Bruno Mars is anywhere around! He done released ANOTHER song that is currently playing as I give you this tea! It’s called “Versace on the Floor!” Check it out below and then let’s gag!
After 24K Magic I didn’t know what Bruno was gone hit me with next! I know this, THIS SONG IS THE AIR I BREATHE! AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO WENT TO VERSACE WEBSITE LOOKING FOR SOMETHING TO BUY SO I CAN OUT IT ON THE FLOOR?! I don’t understand do these producers he works with not exist unless he calls for him. Because when I say NO ONE makes music like Bruno Mars. I have never run into a Bruno song I didn’t absolutely LOVE! I guess in a sense this is true artistry but it makes me wonder, WHAT THE HELL IS EVERYBODY ELSE DOING?!
Anyway, his new album is coming, Nov 18 so I guarantee you; THIS ASS WILL BE IN TARGET READY TO BUY! Add this to my collection of incomparable Bruno Mars records. How do you feel about Bruno Mars new song? BTW I’ve never heard anyone say they didn’t like Bruno Mars…. just a sidebar…. ok!
I love you for reading!
OK sis lemme first start by saying Bruno Mars can do NO WRONG in my eyes! I don’t care what ANYBODY says! I haven’t come across one Bruno song I didn’t like. And ever since his last album, I’ve been waiting for something new from Bru Bru with the exception of Uptown Funk.
BITCH HE DELIVER’T!!!! “24K Magic” is the newest single that Bruno released not only the song, but video too last night at midnight. Now I was drunk and sleep so I missed it I did see tweets this morning and listened to it on my way home from Burger King this morning and I tell you what!!! GET INTO IT BELOW AND THEN WE’LL KIKI!
DID YOU SNATCH YOUR WIG OFF AND THROW IT AT ME!?!? Bruno Mars has the appeal of the coolest man on the planet! And if I didn’t know any better I would assume he was high as a kite cause he just glides around like he’s not even walking! That would probably explain why when I listen to his music I feel high too. CONTACT HIGH!
The video was cool or whatever. After the first 38 seconds, I knew what it was gone be. A big party in Vegas video and that’s it. But it fit well with the song so I ALLOWED IT! Anyway I absolutely LOVE and can’t wait for this new album to add to my Bruno album collections. Let us know what you think about the 4-year anticipated return of Bru Bru Mars and as always
I love you for reading
Fall Music is looking REALLY GOOD! GAGA, BRUNO, WEEKND I CANT WAIT!!!
