Bruno Mars Talks Grammy Noms
'Doo-Wops & Hooligans' has been out for a year, but it's still cleaning up at awards shows. Bruno Mars was nominated for six awards last night -- including Album, Record and Song of the Year -- joining the ranks of Adele and the Foo Fighters. How do you think that feels?
"It feels incredible," Mars told the Hollywood Reporter. "It's hard for me because Adele is incredible, Kanye West is incredible … The fact that this album is being categorized with all these acts, it's incredible."
In addition to the "big three," Mars was nominated for Best Pop Solo Performance for 'Grenade' and Best Pop Vocal Album, while the Smeezingtons were nominated for Producer of the Year, Non Classical.
Which nod brought Mars the most joy? "Me and these guys [The Smeezingtons] locked ourselves in a studio not too far from here to work on this album, especially 'Grenade,' that's the song we worked the hardest on," Mars told the Hollywood Reporter. "That's our trophy right there. Of all the songs that we've been fortunate enough to be a part of this year, we were most proud of that one."
Mars' Grammy nominations follow his first-ever American Music Award for Best Pop/Rock Male Artist, two MTV EMAs and last year's Grammy win for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance for 'Just the Way You Are.' Here's hoping he's got room for more trophies!
