Bruno Mars


The 'Grenade' singer, who lost his mom from a brain aneurysm last week, says he's 'thankful for all the love during the most difficult time' in his life.

Bruno Mars spoke out for the first time after her mother's death nearly a week ago. The 27-year-old singer took to Twitter on Thursday, June 6, to thank his fans for their support, saying, "So thankful for all the love during the most difficult time in my life. Ill be back on my feet again soon.Thats what mom wants, she told me."

Mars' mother, Bernadette Hernandez, died from a brain aneurysm on Saturday, June 1, at the age of 55 at the Queens Medical Center in Honolulu, Hawaii. The Philippine-born Bernadette came to Hawaii and worked as a singer and hula dancer. She encouraged her son's interest in music from a very young age.

When Mars was nominated for seven Grammys, Hernandez said that she was so proud of his son. "I knew this was going to happen but not this extent," she said. "I still think of him as my baby and keep forgetting he is a grown man."

Mars was very close to her mother. He had her mother's name tattooed on his shoulder. Mars also wrote, sang and recorded a song entitled "I Love You Mom" when he was just 4 years old.
