  • Bruno Mars, this will surprise you that I've done this much research.

  • I hear it's not your real name.

  • It's not my real name.

  • It's not his real name.

  • You caught me.

  • Ok, that's all for tonight.

  • So what were you called?

  • Peter.

  • So where did the Bruno come from?

  • "Bruno"- I was a chubby baby and there was a wrestler in my dad's day named Bruno Sammartino.

  • Are you familliar?

  • I remember that wrestler, yes.

  • He was a stocky guy, and I used to walk around like a little bulldog, my dad said he'd always call me Bruno Sammartino.

  • "Mars" just kinda came joking around in the studio.

  • Oh yeah.

  • Saying I'm out of this world.

  • What people don't realise, they might have thought we were being stupid playing Billionaire when you came on.

  • But, you wrote Billionaire and you've written loads of songs, apart from-

  • Yeah, quite a few this year.

  • Yeah.

  • Now, call me lazy, but isn't that a much better way to go?

  • Just write songs for other people?

  • You make the money, you don't have to do the stupid touring.

  • No, I love that.

  • Stupid touring now.

  • Go on, what other songs have you written.

  • Come on, tell us, 'cause Billionaire was a huge hit, wasn't it?

  • I wrote Thriller, Purple Rain um- I'm joking.

  • Jimmy's going 'wow, that is impressive.'

  • Happy Birthday, that's his.

  • Happy Birthday, I wrote that one.

  • Can we see if this is a wig?

  • It's not a wig, but it's definitely been in that thing.

  • No, I recently did a song for Cee Lo called F- You.

  • I don't know if you guys heard that?

  • Oh my god.

  • That was you?

  • That's a great song.

  • That's amazing.

  • I'm obsessed with that song.

  • Awesome, thank you.

  • Why would you give that song away though 'cause you're a singer and a solo artist, why would you...?

  • It wasn't given away, we had a session booked with him and we started jamming and that was the song we came up with.

  • Have you ever heard this song?

  • No.

  • What!

  • It's extraordinary.

  • This is a great song.

  • - I'm not good on modern stuff. - If only we had someone here who could sing it...

  • Come on, give us a burst.

  • Forget You - Cee Lo Green

  • How cool is that?

  • Cee Lo!

Bruno Mars, this will surprise you that I've done this much research.
