"Everyone's putting the fear of God in me..."
In an interview with Billboard, Bruno Mars spoke about his performance at the Super Bowl and how he plans to deal with the cold New Jersey weather. Here are highlights:
On the cold weather: "Everyone's putting the fear of God in me like there's going to be a blizzard. I'm going to wear a beekeeper suit, I don't know. I'm not going to know until I get there ... I'm not trying to hype myself up too much. I know it's going to be cold and I just got to face it."
On his reaction to getting the job: When we got that phone call, again, what do you say? `Nah.' What do you say? `Absolutely. Let's rock.' It was something exciting for me and my (band). It wasn't too long ago when we were performing in clubs and bars and pubs, and even when I put (my first) album out, (we were) opening acts for a bunch of different artists, living in a van and traveling around and kind of putting in the work and time. It might seem fast to the outsider looking in, but you know, it's just another thing we can celebrate and I feel like as a group we all achieved it together. You know, performing on TV and stuff, whatever the NFL saw they dug it and that's why we got the call."
On how he'll manage: "You know what, it's awesome. ... even if I have to build a chimney onstage, perform around a fire, I'll do it."
