Bruno Mars’ Debut Certified Platinum

Bruno Mars

Bruno Mars is a worldwide hit. His 2010 debut Doo-Wops & Hooligans has been certified platinum in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and other countries, with additional gold certification in international terrains including Korea, Belgium, France, and Indonesia.

The singer-songwriter, who has sold 14 million singles worldwide, was recently named one of TIME magazine’s most influential people in the world alongside President Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Justin Bieber, and more. To celebrate his achievement, he will perform with fellow honoree Sting at New York City’s Jazz at Lincoln Center on April 26.

The gig comes in anticipation of his “Hooligans in Wondaland” tour with Janelle Monáe, kicking off at New York’s Roseland Ballroom on May 4.

    Happy for Bruno, LOVE him. But isn’t it funny how no one talks about him being arrested on cocaine charges? And yet he’s influential. Dont get me wrong, but let him have been Black like Chris Brown and I doubt we’d give him a chance to ever move on! He’s be on CNN every time he scratched his butt. #FACT

    @Tammi, IDC if Bruno and any other star like Charlie Sheen, Wiz Khalifa, Snoop or Lindsay take drugs. To a lot of people in the general public, it seems almost ordinary. However when it comes to assaults… take a look at Mel Gibson.

    @Tammi, domestic violence is something that this country hates. I got into a fight with my mother’s ex-boyfriend and I was charged with assault and domestic violence and was also given 6 months in prison even though it was my first offense. Tens of millions of people use drugs including cocaine every day. Look at Alec Baldwin, he was beating up Kim Basinger and it took him years to get his career back. Mel Gibson said racist remarks and was beating up his ex-girlfriend and look at his career. Domestic violence is one of the most serious crimes to commit in this country. You can put one drug addict or dealer in jail and right down the street there are 10 more. I know 4 people who sell weed and they live on the same street as me and they’ve been doing it for years.

    @Tammi, the likes of Gaddafi got into Time’s 100 most influential people list. You don’t have to be a saint to be considered “influential”. It’s people whose “ideas spark dialogue and dissent and sometimes even revolution”. He has had an incredible and influential presence in the music scene this past year, and Time just couldn’t ignore that fact.
    What Chris Brown did will always remain unforgettable, and that domestic violence charge will forever a) cloud his once-perfect image and b) be one of the things that people will always remember him for. Yes, any offence which is drug-related is an indictable offence, but domestic violence? I’m sorry, but Bruno Mars’ drug stint will always be the David of the story, and Chris Brown’s violent actions will be the Goliath of the story. (I’m talking in literal terms… not at all referring to the moral of the story)

    My motto is If you can’t do the crime, don’t do the time! If he stays out of trouble for 12 motnhs? In the immortal words of Shania Twain song that’s playing right now as I write this, That don’t impress me much! Whether you’re Brad Pitt, Bruno Mars, Lindsay Lohen or any other celebrity, why should they get off with such a leniant sentence. Do they really learn anything from getting off light? I think this guy’s going to need more then 8 hours of counselling for cocaine . I hope he at least learned a lesson, we’ll have to just wait and see.Message to young kids and older kids out there as well, STAY IN SCHOOL, MAKE SOMETHING OF YOURSELF, DREAM! DREAM! DREAM! and DON T DO DRUGS!!It starts at home, with FAMILY in my opinion. Am I right? Right Fiona? Fiona? Fiona? Gee, how I miss you already. That MyValentineMap will sure come in handy thought. Thanks again CHFI!!RainbowRay?????RainbowRay
