Bruno Mars covers "Billboard Magazine"

Bruno Mars stopped through and chatted it up with Billboard Magazine covering topics from getting dropped from Motown, getting caught with cocaine, and who he would like to work with in the future. Check out excerpts from Bruno's interview.

On getting dropped by his first label, Universal Motown I wasn’t ready for it. I did nothing. And the lesson was — why are you waiting for someone to come and write a song with you? You know how to play the freakin’ guitar. Do it on your own.

On being caught with cocaine It’s something that I wish would go away. It’s a cloud that constantly follows me no matter how many achievements. I’d like to move on. To show that I’m here for my music. Not to be in a tabloid.

On who he would like to work with in the near future I’m just a mixed-up dude. I want to work with the Kanyes, the Jay-Zs… a Rihanna, a Gaga, Kings of Leon, Mumford & Sons. I want to do all those things. As proud as I am of “Doo-Wops,” I feel like, ‘Oh, man. People haven’t seen nothing. They don’t even know what I’m about to do,’ and that’s what I can’t wait to show the world.
