Not everybody loves Bruno Mars -- particularly one cultural critic who accuses the superstar of ripping off black culture.
Sensei Aishitemasu appeared on The Grapevine to fire shots, saying, “He is racially ambiguous. He is not black, at all, and he plays up his racial ambiguity to be able to do cross-genre and going into different places.”
She suggest he's not deserving of his accolades, either. "He’s a karaoke singer, he’s a wedding singer, he’s the person you hire to do Michael Jackson and Prince covers. Yet Bruno Mars has an Album of the Year Grammy and Prince never won an Album of the YearGrammy. Bruno Mars got that Grammy because white people love him because he’s not black, period."
If you're keeping score, Ancestry.com style, Bruno is Puerto Rican, Filipino and Ashkenazi Jewish.
