OMG I MISS THE GOOD OLD DAYS AT SNL
It’s hard to imagine Bruno Mars as anything but a chart-topping superstar, but did you know that he used to perform as a Michael Jackson impersonator? That’s right, before he was selling out arenas and winning Grammys, he was honing his craft as a young performer in Hawaii.
Bruno Mars, born Peter Gene Hernandez, has always been a talented musician, but it wasn’t until he started impersonating the King of Pop that he really started to gain attention. In fact, he was such a convincing Michael Jackson impersonator that he even got noticed by the legendary singer himself.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Bruno Mars revealed that he was just four years old when he first saw Michael Jackson perform on television. From that moment on, he was hooked. He spent hours studying Jackson’s dance moves and studying his music, and before long he was performing as a Jackson impersonator at local talent shows and events.
As he got older, Bruno Mars continued to perform as a Michael Jackson impersonator, even competing in a local talent show called Brown Bags to Stardom. It wasn’t long before he caught the attention of the music industry, and he was soon signed to a record label and began releasing his own music.
While Bruno Mars has since established himself as a unique and talented artist in his own right, it’s clear that Michael Jackson had a profound influence on him. From his catchy pop hooks to his electrifying dance moves, it’s easy to see how the King of Pop inspired Bruno Mars to become the superstar he is today.
So, there you have it – the amazing story of how Bruno Mars used to be a Michael Jackson impersonator. It just goes to show that sometimes the greatest stars have humble beginnings, and that even the biggest legends can inspire the next generation of talent. We can’t wait to see what Bruno Mars will do next!
