Adele, Bruno Mars Feud Claim NOT True
The report can be found in the pages of this week’s National Enquirer under the headline, “Adele’s Sending Bruno To Mars!” The piece states, “After Bruno Mars called Adele a diva in a recent interview, friends of Adele fired back.” It’s said Mars is “now on her no-fly list!”
“He thinks he’s so funny and witty, but in fact he is just rude,” a so-called “pal” tells the magazine. “Telling tales about what goes on inside a recording studio is private. He was happy to dish about her ‘attitude,’ but he didn’t mention that he has been begging to record a song with her.”
Actually, Mars DID mention wanting to work with Adele again. The supermarket tabloid has conveniently left that out, as well as the context of Mars’ remarks, which were actually filled with praise. Recalling their work on “All I Ask,” he told 103.5 KTU’s “Cubby & Carolina Bermudez in the Morning,” “She’s a superstar. She walks into the studio, she’s got all this attitude. She’s a diva, she’s like, ‘I don’t want to do this. I don’t like that.’ And then as soon as we hit a couple chords that she liked, we started rolling and that’s where we got that song from.”
“She’s incredible,” Mars went on to say. “There was a moment when she was singing in the booth — and I’m not exaggerating at all — and the water was vibrating. Like, you know that scene in Jurassic Park? The water starts jiggling. She’s got some pipes on her and she’s just a superstar.”
It’s clear from the full comments that Mars wasn’t dissing Adele, but simply speaking about the process that led to a successful collaboration. There was nothing for Adele to be offended by, and no reason for her friends to supposedly “fire back.” What we have here is the National Enquirer making up a feud follow-up story just to be sensational. Too bad it’s wrong.
