Bruno Mars: Pure Gold

Anyone wearing that much silk must be having the best year ever. Just when you thought it couldn’t get better than Uptown Funk, Bruno Mars gleamed brighter than gold with #1 hit single and album 24k Magic. Smoother than your uncle’s perm, Mars continues to be an unstoppable force proving big things come in small packages.

The legacy of Juanga, as he was affectionately called, is not only etched in stone with a star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame but is sure to make cameos for decades to come at your local weddings, Sunday dinners and quinceañeras.
