Bruno Mars covers the latest issue of GQ where he talks about writing hit songs and wears this season’s latest tuxedo jackets.  See the photoshoot inside and watch comediennes Torrei Hart and Simone Shepherd spoof Beyonce and Destiny’s Child shutting down the power at Super Bowl 2013.

 

In the April 2013 issue GQ, "Billionaire" singer Bruno Mars discusses his vintage style and hit writing process for his own hit album, Unorthodox Jukebox. And while modeling how readers can work tuxedo jackets (through photos by Peggy Sirota) into their everyday wardrobe, he talks about his journey as a muscian.  And he also shares some of the setbacks that helped teach him some of life’s biggest lessons.   Get to know Bruno Mars in the new GQ.  He’s a breath of fresh air to us.  

Here’s some highlights: 

 

On using metaphors for sex and religion in "Locked Out of Heaven":

"You’re not listening to it right if you’re picking it apart like that. You know? I can’t overthink everything I wrote or worry about that kind of stuff. Hopefully people should know. There’s no blasphemy. Or insult to any religion. It’s just fucking poetry, whether you believe me or not."
 

On the difficulty of writing hit songs:

"You know how hard it is to write a big song? That shit is hard, man. It’s so hard to do. Might be one of the hardest things to ever do. I don’t ever want to come out with something safe and get away with ‘It sounds good!’ It’s got to be more than sounding good. The music I like are events. Fucking ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’is my favorite song—that song’s an event. And that’s what I want to do. I’m sure that shocked the world, that song. ‘Billie Jean’ shocked the world. ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit.’ Those songs are events. That guy put everything he got into that, and he meant it."

On what he learned from getting busted for cocaine possession:

"’I can take this shit away from you, young man.’ That was the lesson. You’ve slaved away for years and years and years. You’ve prepped your whole life. It’s all you know how to do. You’re a kid experiencing life in fucking Sin City, and that was the lesson: It can all be taken away. Put you in a weird place. Embarrass you."

GETTING DIRTIER: Brian McKnight Drops “ANAL” Song & Shoots “Funny Or Die” Video

Brian McKnight is back at it again with his writing and recording "dirty music." Listen to his "Anal" track inside and see him on his "Funny or Die" shoot.

 

If you thought R. Kelly was the king of dirty songs…get ready for the crown’s new competitor.  R&B singer Brian McKnight is continuing his trip down the XXX road with a nasty jam called "Anal."  Yes….it’s called "Anal."  

Brian wrote the track for as a thank you to YouPorn.com after sales of his last dirty record "SHow Me How Your Pu**y Works" got a rise out of fans.

And because he was recently spotted with Warren G and Kreayshawn at a Funny Or Die video shoot in Los Angeles, this MAY become a video for the parody site as well.

Listen to Brian’s dirty ditty "Anal" here:

 

And in case you missed it…..

Brian explained recently why he’s writing all these dirty songs.  Do you like this new "direction?"

FUNNY LADY: Gabby Union Asks Dwyane Wade “Where’s My Ring?!” At BET Honors!

Earlier tonight, Gabrielle Union hosted "THE BET HONORS" at the Warner Theatre in Washington, D.C.  During her "monologue" Gabby had them rolling in the aisles as she (slight spolier alert) cracked on her beau Dwyane Wade about giving HER a ring!  Find out what she said inside….

Tonight in Washington D.C. at the Warner Theatre, Gabrielle Union hosted the taping of "THE BET HONORS" which airs Monday, Feb. 13 on BET at 9pm.

This year, the FLOTUS was among the attendees as the fifth annual show celebrated the accomplishments of poet/author Maya Angelou , musician Stevie Wonder , songstress Mariah Carey, filmmaker Spike Lee , the Tuskegee Airmen , and inspirational coach and mentor Beverly Kearney (education).

But the evening’s highlight was hostess Gabby Union who looked into the audience at her boyfriend Dwyane Wade and said, "Why are you crying on the floor after your loss to Dallas Mavericks? You have a ring! I should be the one crying….Where’s my ring?" (looks at wedding finger)

Hmmm……maybe Gabby should create a one-woman show and hit the road. She has the comedic chops for it!

FABOLOUS RESPONDS: “Ray-J Is COKED UP On Pills! His WHOLE Interview Was A FUNNY LIE!”

After Ray-J went extra hard bright and early this morning about allegedly smacking up Fabolous, Fab has just responded with his own hilarious version of what REALLY went down.

 

Check it inside…

Fab called into Power 105 to talk to DJ Clue and essentially told Ray-J to clean himself up and stop letting people around him control what he does.  Fab says nothing Ray-J said actually happened and he’s lying about everything.  Possibly because he’s coked up on pills and high.  (WOW)  Fab maintains he’s a grown ass man who doesn’t need this type of drama and doesn’t even want to ruin a young man like Ray-J.  But here’s his side of the story told by Fabolous:

  • Fab said "This isn’t a big thing to me.  Ray is high and coked up and on pills."
  • Ray is going to have to respond and prove that he did what he said he did to me.
  • I made a couple jokes on Twitter about Ray-J singing on the piano during Floyd Mayweather’s "24/7 show".  But people are taking it too serious.
  • Fab joked that only DJ "Negotiator" Clue could squash the beef with "Lil Brandy" (HA!)
  • Originally, Fab thought everything was ok when he saw Ray-J and Diddy at Floyd’s dinner in Vegas and both were laughing.
  • Fab says he had a show at The Palms with Jadakiss.  He SAW Ray-J before the show and eveything was all good.  Kevin Hart told him while at a pre-show dinner that "Ray-J’s rocking a red hoodie and has 7 Rolls Royces outside."  He thought nothing of it.
  • When he saw "Brandy’s brother," which Fab kept calling him, with the red hoodie standing next to 50 Cent and Floyd, he dapped everybody up.  And he got to Ray, and Ray said "I’m here with the ‘Money Team’ and we not feelin’ ya jokes."
  • He didn’t think Ray was serious at first getting mad over dumb stuff.  Even 50 and Floyd were looking at Ray confused.  And he asked him what was wrong–and Floyd kept bringing up this ‘Money Gang’ and Floyd and 50.  Fab told Ray not to  bring anybody else into it.  But if he was serious, don’t continue to touch his shoulder.  Ray pushed him in his chest, then Fab grabbed him up.  
  • Him trying to go on this "Tupac Rant" is all made up.  "Ray was probably on "That Whitney" last night."  The ‘Money Team’ can even tell you NOTHING like he said went down. 
  • I grabbed him up by his little red hoodie and said "Chill out Little Red Riding Hood."  I wasn’t trying to Ortiz him witht he hoodie on, security got involved, I let him go.  He’s behind his security dude yelling at the cieling.  My shades fell off–that’s the only thing that went down.
  • I went into my dressing room and joked about it with Meek Mill and Kevin Hart.  I actually performed with no shades on.  Ray told the Breakfast Club my face was all f’d up…it’s a lie.  Unless I had a plastic surgeon backstage, everybody would have seen damage to  my face. He didn’t swing, it’s not happening.  There’s nothing wrong with my face.
  • The interview was funny.  But a lie.  No dudes is raping anybody here on this side.  Up until this point, Ray-J was an associate up until this point.  But the real story is–there’s cool niggas and real niggas and you can’t mix them with lame ni**as.  I don’t care if you got money.  You just a lame ni**a with money.
  • There’s no way Ray-J is getting anything off on me.  Nothing.  Never.  Never ever.
  • I don’t want people to think I didn’t respond because he got something on me.  But anybody real doesn’t believe Ray-J’s made up story.

 

Fab says he’s leaving twitter alone for a while because it gets him in trouble.  Hopefully he’ll chime in on the #ThingHarderThanRayJ trending topic first though.  Regardless of the real story…that interview this morning was a HOT ASS MESS.  As is this entire situation.  Sonja please come get ya son….
