Bruno Mars Would Give Up His Music Career To Have His Late Mother Back

He might be (as some have said) this generation's Michael Jackson, but Bruno Mars is willing to give it all up just to have his mom back.

As you may know, the 31-year-old lost his beloved mother, Bernadette San Pedro Bayot, back in 2013 when she passed away unexpectedly at the age of 55 from a brain aneurysm.

When asked what he learned from Bernadette, the 24K Magic artist told Latina magazine:

"The woman who taught you to love, showed you what a woman is supposed to be. When that goes away, a little more than half your heart goes away with it."

The multi-talented Puerto Rican singer continued:

"You just gotta know that she's with me everywhere I go. It's something that you can't imagine — the pain and the things that you keep going back to: ‘I wish I would've done this or said this.' You just have to see life differently. It shows you the real importance of life. Nothing else matters in this world but family and your loved ones."

The interviewer questioned Bruno if his mother's death changed his music like it did with Kanye West. He paused before saying:

"I don't know how to answer that question. My life has changed. She's more than my music. If I could trade music to have her back, I would. I always hear her say, ‘Keep going and keep doing it.'"

Nothing can replace a mother's love!

While Bernadette taught the R&B crooner how to "love," his father Pedro Hernandez taught him what he knows about music and swag.

The songwriter explained:

"My whole sense of rhythm is because my dad was teaching me bongos as a kid. He's an old-school working musician, so that's where the pinky rings come from, the patent-leather shoes, the suits, and the pompadour. It all stems from watching my father. I remember at the time, me and my sisters would be a little embarrassed when he would take us to school in his big-ass Cadillac. No one had Cadillacs in Hawaii. But my dad would show up in some boat-looking Caddy wearing some silky shit, and we'd run out into the car as soon as possible. And here I am wearing the swap-meet gold, driving Cadillacs."

Bless!
