Bruno Mars still hopes to make a fan out of British Prime Minister David Cameron. The UK’s leader said that he doesn’t really care for Bruno Mars or his songs. In fact, when his children introduced him to the music, David Cameron said he found it”appalling.” His statement was brought to 27-year-old singer, who seemed to take it in stride, saying he wished he could win Cameron over, the UK’s Now Magazine reported. “D**n it, that sucks,’” Bruno Mars said with a smile, “because I really wanted him front row at my concert.” Mars then added that he doesn’t take any criticism too seriously because it serves no purpose. Bruno Mars told The Independent:
“Yeah, you know, people aren’t going to love everything you do. And you gotta realize that that’s the way the world is today, especially with the internet and Facebook and Twitter; everyone has an opinion. And it’s gonna be more in your face because of the times we’re living in, so the sooner you realize that, at the end of the day no one’s opinion matters, the sooner you’re gonna have fun. And I’m having a f*****g blast, sweetheart.”
Even if the British leader isn’t a fan, Bruno Mars can likely take solace in his recent performance. The singer is on top of the Billboard’s “Hot 100″ chart for the second consecutive week, as his song “Locked Out Of Heaven” held onto its No. 1 slot, ABC News noted. The song is the fourth from Bruno Mars to top the charts as his sophomore album, UNORTHODOX JUKEBOX, debuted as No. 2 on the SoundScan/Billboard 200 chart with sales in excess of 192,000.
