What's up with Bruno Mars?
Has the singer been the victim of an Internet hoax or is he furiously attempting to backpedal after coming out on the radio?
According to a now-deleted post that ran on a CNN website, Mars recently said to a Chicago radio station, "I will not go to great lengths to spread this news. The timing is bad, I hadn't realized it was April Fool's Day but it's been pointed out to me and I don't want to go too public with this. I don't want it to be disregarded as a joke. My sexuality is no joke to me and it's come out a little faster than I'd hoped."
A rep for the singer supposedly denied the claims to the website Gossip Cop, saying they were "completely fabricated" and "false."
We've always thought Mars somewhat resembled a really chic lesbian, but never considered the fact that he could be a gay man. If this is indeed an attempt to cover up the truth, we applaud Bruno's bravery. If it's just a gag, well, we're sure dozens of gays are mildly heartbroken.
