Bruno Mars is glad he was dropped early in his career because whilst it ''sucked'' at the time, he doesn't think he'd be in the music industry without it.
Bruno Mars says his failures have made him who he is.
The 'Count on Me' hitmaker was dropped earlier in his career and whilst it ''sucked'' at the time, he doesn't think he would still be in the music industry without it.
He said: ''[Those days] sucked, but in a beautiful way. Without getting dropped, I might not be here. All of these things you have to go through. It ain't easy. If it was easy everyone would be doing it.
''The worst absolute moment was telling everybody I got dropped. I'm broke. I'm in debt. Walking into a room saying, 'Yeah, I'm a signed Motown artist,' then walking in and saying, 'I'm a dropped Motown artist.' But I'm not blaming anybody over there.
''Sylvia Rhone gave me a deal and the timing wasn't right. I had to go through this journey. I had to meet Jeff [Bhasker] and beg him to come play at Pickwick's Pub on Ventura with me. I had to sing these songs and gig. I was 20-years-old. I wasn't even supposed to be in these places probably.''
And the 31-year-old singer hopes he will be remembered for his music and not for any ''scandals or controversy''.
Asked how he wants to be remembered during an appearance on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 show on Apple Music, he added: ''I hope that my music does the talking. I just wanna do music. It could be boring for people this day and age, but I don't wanna be known for no scandals or controversy. I want to be the guy that brings joy to your life through his music. That's it.''
