Bruno Mars & Adele Disagreed on One of Her Song Lyrics

Bruno Mars takes the cover of Rolling Stone magazine’s new issue.

Here’s what the 31-year-old entertainer had to share with the mag:

On releasing his new music after “Uptown Funk”: “Coming off the biggest song of my career, it was super-daunting to come in here. I don’t know if people are going to love this sh*t. I don’t know if radio is going to play it. But what I don’t want to have happen is I put it out and say, ‘Damn it, if I’d just done this and this, maybe it would have had a shot.’”

On fighting with Adele over the lyric “Take me by the hand while we do what lovers do” in “All I Ask”: “We were aiming for that big, diva, ballad thing – that’s what I envisioned,” Mars says. “But ‘lovers’? I don’t know if anybody really says ‘lovers.’ ‘Yeah, we’re lovers.’ ‘This is my lover.’ I was like, ‘Should we rethink that?’ But [Adele] was so gangster about it. She was like, ‘Nope. That’s what it has to be.’ And she was right. It’s this grand word that makes the song bigger because no one says it. Because nobody talks like that, it pops out. It’s not ‘what boyfriends-and-girlfriends do’ – it’s this over-the-top ‘lovers.’ Sometimes I play it on the piano, and I look forward to singing that part. It’s f*cking perfect…Don’t try to be cool. Let it be what it wants to be.”

On playing the Super Bowl twice: “God bless the Super Bowl. They hooked me up, they took a chance on me. But I had to keep reminding them why they took a chance on me. You put that camera on my band and me, and I got you.”

    he’s right. I’ve never used that word and NO ONE I”ve ever been in a conversation with has described the other half as lover. 🤔 “that’s my lover”, “her/his lover’s name is…”, “what are you and your lover doing this weekend?”, “your lover is just the best”, “this is Jane and her lover…”
    ” sure, you can bring your lover” nope. and it was one of the first things I did notice in the song. and coming back around to your comment, it was kinda dumb.
