Video: Bruno Mars – ‘Just the Way You Are’

We knew Bruno Mars had many talents, but he reveals his latest and strangest one yet in the Ethan Lader-directed video for “Just the Way You Are,” the lead single from his full-length debut album Doo-Wops & Hooligans (due Oct. 5). The 23-year-old singer-songwriter makes portraits come to life using cassette tape string in the clip, which was inspired by artist Erika Iris Simmons.

The island boy scored a coveted spot performing at this Sunday’s VMAs. With credits that include B.o.B’s “Nothin on You,” Travie McCoy’s “Billionaire,” and Cee Lo’s latest sensation “F**k You,” we’re not surprised.
