Bruno Mars isn’t talking about it himself yet, but the word on the street is that the “Uptown Funk” singer is headed back to the Super Bowl.
Mars was the headliner for the Super Bowl XLVIII halftime show in 2014. He brought along the Red Hot Chili Peppers for that appearance. The show broke all records at the time,.
But the very next year, Katy Perry literally flew during her halftime show, upping the game once again. Since then, Katy Perry has tried to buy a convent, with much resistance from the nuns who own it. Apparently, they were not as impressed with her flying stunt as the rest of the world was.
Now Bruno Mars looks to be coming back. But it’s probably not just him. According to sources for Billboard magazine, Bruno Mars was asked to “curate” theSuper Bowl 50 halftime show in Santa Clara, California, which will take place on Feb. 7, 2016.
This thing has entered the third hour. When does Bruno Mars perform? #GOPDebate

If that is true, it means that Mars will be picking the other acts to join him on stage for that performance.
Back with Mars was scheduled for the 2014 Super Bowl, Director of media events for the NFL Sarah Moll considered landing the singer one of her best moves professionally.
“Myself and our producer, Ricky Kirshner, were both personal fans of Bruno and had seen him in concert and knew what he could do,” she said. “And it was a lot of just telling folks here and getting folks excited about Bruno and taking them to shows and letting them see what he could do. And that’s kind of what got it going.”
“But I look at it really as Super Bowl XLVIII as a whole and the day really encompassed music from the beginning of the day all the way through halftime.”
Thought I saw Bruno Mars in concert once but it was really just me flailing my arm in the bathroom mirror for 3 hours while on shrooms.
