Old & Crazy (feat. Esperanza Spalding) - Bruno Mars
Bruno Mars was generous enough to let us listen to the awesomeness that is called Unorthodox Jukebox, which is his sophomore album. I have no doubts that this guy won’t suffer what most artists go through after a huge ground-breaking first album - the sophomore syndrome. He is too much of a great musician and I can feel that in this second album, he wasn’t afraid to venture and to explore deeper into what he is capable of doing musicality-wise.
I must admit, after the big hit and carrier single Locked Out of Heaven, I was waiting for a WOW factor in the next singles to come, like the way I felt about Doo Wops and Hooligans. But I guess big things really do come in small packages, with Bruno slowly releasing singles one by one before the big album release on December 11th in the US. The more you listen to Unorthodox Jukebox, the more it grows into you. My favorites so far are Treasure, Show Me, and When I Was Your Man.
I am a big Bruno Mars fan. And it doesn’t take anyone to be a fan to appreciate the genius in this guy. This album is huge, and though it may not be as huge as Doo Wops and Hooligans for some, I believe in the staying power of an album if it is the kind that makes you wanna listen to it more and more as it grows into you. And that is what Unorthodox Jukebox is definitely all about.
Listen to the album here:
Please don’t forget to buy the album in iTunes once it becomes available on December 11th in the US.
Dear Tumblr dashboard,

Just The Way You Are - Bruno Mars
THE HOTTEST GUYS IN MUSIC
1. BRUNO MARS
It was love at first sight for me. This guy is VERY talented. He has a beautiful voice, he writes, produces, sings, plays the guitar, drums and piano. I love his moves on stage (yes he can dance, and I mean really DANCE), a great performer. He is dapper, I like his rockabilly sense of fashion. He is very witty, and a very funny guy. His tweets always gets me rolling on the floor laughing. Not to mention his handsome looks - his big eyes, cute dimples and beautiful smile. I love his curly hair, and his golden brown skin color. Aaaaaaaahhh. What more can you ask for?! This is the kind of guy you introduce to your mother. Bruno Mars is definitely my kind of guy! <3
2. CHRIS MARTIN of Coldplay
I said this before and I’ll say it again. I am not really a fan of blue eyes, but if its Chris Martin, I’d gladly reconsider! He’s got the bluest eyes I’ve ever seen, well, at least from where I was sitting at the lobby of Four Seasons Hotel in Hong Kong where we saw the band leaving for their soundcheck. He seems like a very mild-mannered guy during interviews, a bit on the shy side. And he’s got a cute boyish look. Gwyneth is a lucky gal! :)
3. ADAM LEVINE of Maroon 5
Adam, just take your shirt off okay?! You are one hot sexy thang! My short and brief encounter with this guy was very memorable, and I found it cute that he answered my stupid silly question (please don’t ask what the question was). He is a darling. And his concerts always give me a massive hangover. You hot sexy thang - oh yeah I already said that.
4. JOHN MAYER
They say he is an asshole. Well, he is one talented gorgeous asshole. John Mayer is defintely HOT. When he performs, its like he has a love affair with his guitar. Mr. Mayer, I hope you get well soon, I miss you.
5. BONO of U2
Even though Bono is old enough to be my dad, I still find him gorgeous. I have always loved him since I was a kid. He is the front man of the world’s greatest band, and he totally owns the stage, no not just the stage but the whole stadium when he performs. His presence is just overwhelming. I have yet to see U2 perform live. But I am very sure its gonna be one heck of an experience! Bono, please come to Manila!
6. DAVID COOK
David Cook is the reason why I watched the whole 7th Season of Americal Idol. I already liked him from his audition. I find him very handsome! And I totally love his voice. He was the only contestant who chose the best songs and he totally owned them. His performances were just stellar. I never really liked Lionel Richie’s “Hello” but when David Cook sang it, its like I had a new-found respect for the song. I hope he comes back to Manila.
7. JARED LETO of 30 Seconds To Mars
I braved the rain just to see Jared Leto perform. And that says it all. He looks like a living mannequin. He looks so perfect I wanted to ask if he was human hahaha! He just turned 40 and he doesn’t look his age at all. You can still mistake him for a 28 year old. Or even younger. Jared Leto, you are GORGEOUS!
8. GAVIN ROSSDALE
Aaaww. Gavin Rossdale. I was more a fan of Gavin than his band Bush. I think Bush became huge because of his good looks and his voice. I liked his solo album Wanderlust. Other than the fact that he is Gwen Stefani’s (my ultimate favorite!) husband, I love this guy because I can tell that he is a humble man. He has already tweeted me back several times and I still get all too giddy everytime that happens. And I am hoping to meet him when Bush comes to Manila next month!
9. JASON WADE of Lifehouse
Jason Wade! Another kind of guy you’d introduce to your mom. This guy is mild-mannered and very humble. He totally doesn’t have a rockstar attitude. I was lucky enough to have met him and the band when they went to Manila, and it was one of the most memorable experiences I ever had. He is sooo cute and charming, you’d want to put him in your pocket and take him home. And he also has a good sense of humor. I would love to see him again!
10. JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE
I first got the chance to see Justin Timberlake in LA at the time when he still sported blonde curls and was still with N’Sync, but I didn’t pay much attention as I had my eyes on JC Chazez. But that curly boy grew up and become one HOT SEXY man. Wasn’t able to meet him when he came to Manila but I was one of the girls screaming when he came on stage during Timbaland’s concert. If there were really BENEFITS, I wouldn’t mind having Justin as my FRIEND :p.
