According to a CNN iReport this week, singer Bruno Mars admitted to them that he is gay, but his rep is denying the rumor and said he was just playing an April Fool’s joke to see what the reaction would be. If that’s true, he got more than he bargained for because his name began to trend on Twitter after the report came out.
The CNN report stated, “The famous pop-star Bruno Mars admits his homosexuality.”
Afterwards, one Twitter user posted, “Bruno Mars is gay? Is this true? If so I’m really not shocked.”
Another wrote, “Bruno Mars comes out as gay” like seriously, i [sic] can also write an article “Michael Jackson still alive, sharing a house with Elvis Presley.”
Another unidentified news source then reported that Mars had called into a Chicago radio station to admit he started the rumor as an April Fool’s joke to gauge reaction. However, Mars rep is calling all the reports “completely fabricated” and “false.”
Mars, who is from Honolulu, once admitted he got his style influence from Elvis Presley and loved the way he could make girls go crazy.
“I watch the best. I’m a big fan of Elvis. I’m a big fan of 1950s Elvis when he would go on stage and scare people because he was a force, and girls would go nuts! You can say the same thing for Prince or The Police. It’s just guys who know that people are here to see a show, so I watch those guys, and I love studying them because I’m a fan.”
