With the lights turned down low, Bruno Mars hit the stage on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” to perform his single “When I Was Your Man.” The R&B heartthrob charmed his way through the stripped-down set with only a red piano and a mic.

The song rises 2-1 on Billboard’s Mainstream Top 40 radio airplay tally, giving Bruno his sixth No. 1 in the chart’s 20-year history.

He recently cut off his trademark locks, documenting the process on Twitter. “I’m gonna make a mustache with it!” he joked.

Bruno will perform at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards along with Prince, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, and Miguel. The show airs live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, May 19, on ABC.

Bruno Mars Dresses Up for GQ’s Style Bible

Bruno Mars

Bruno Mars is looking sharp on the cover of GQ‘s second annual Style Bible. The suave singer follows last year’s cover star Drake, dressing up in tuxedos, formalwear, and fedoras from designers including Ferragamo, Dior Homme, and Emporio Armani.

GQ visited the “Locked Out of Heaven” singer at his home in the Hollywood Hills, where he opened up about his sex-driven lyrics, arrest for cocaine possession, and his style.

On why sex is such a big part of his music: “It feels good to sing about. It feels…sexy. It puts you in a sexy frame of mind. It feels good to pro-ject. Sex is a great party starter.”

On the secret to a hit song: “Shit. For me? Hypnotize me in the very first three seconds, wake my ear plate up, give me something that I haven’t felt before…and then punch me in the fucking face.”

On his arrest for cocaine possession in 2010: “I was young, man! I was in fucking Vegas. I wasn’t thinking. … I was given a number one record and I’m out doing dumb shit.”

In the behind-the-scenes clip, he reveals his biggest style fail was earlier in his career when a stylist put him in a cardigan. “I looked like a Samoan librarian,” laughed Bruno. “That’s that shit I don’t like.”
