Bruno Mars Thanks Fans for ‘All the Love’ After Mom’s Death
Bruno Mars took a moment to thank fans for their well wishes as he continues to cope with the sudden loss of his mother, Bernadette Hernandez
“So thankful for all the love during the most difficult time in my life,” he tweeted Friday morning. “I’ll be back on my feet again soon. That’s what mom wants, she told me.”
Hernandez died June 1 at age 55 in Honolulu of a brain aneurysm. A former hula dancer and singer from the Philippines, she encouraged her son to pursue his musical dreams.
The Bruno nickname emerged when the singer was a toddler, because he resembled a famous wrestler named Bruno Sammartino.
He took on the name Mars out of frustration. He had to change his name to literally sound like he was from another planet so record labels would stop trying to make him the next Enrique Iglesias.
Bruno Mars’ “Moonshine Jungle” tour kicks off June 22 in Washington DC.
