Bruno Mars Talks New Music, Dream Collaborations & His Love For Childish Gambino in Twitter Q&A


Aside from constantly dripping in gold and fending f questions about his alleged collaborations with Michael Jackson, Bruno Mars is just a regular guy. He proved it by getting personal with his Twitter followers on Sunday (May 6) for a round #AskTheDragon, where he answered some his fans' most burning questions.

Mars revealed that fans might have to wait a bit longer for the follow-up to 2016's 24K Magic, but he'll try his hardest to leave them with “something to rock to” before 2018 is over. He also explained that he and his band have enjoyed rocking out to Nine Inch Nails, System a Down and Incubus lately, although the Beach Boys remain one  his favorite artists.

Mars also showered praise on Donald Glover/Childish Gambino, calling the actor and rapper — who just debuted two new singles on Saturday Night Live and released a powerful music video — “all around incredible.” 

Check out the highlights Mars' AMA below.
