Bruno Mars is opening about his past drug arrest in the April issue of GQ.
The “Locked Out of Heaven” singer, 27, was arrested in 2010 for having 2.6 grams of cocaine on him, and he told police at the time that it was his first time using drugs.
But he’s now admitting that he lied, telling GQ “I don't know where that came from. I was really intoxicated. I was really drunk. So a lot of that is a big blur, and I try every day to forget and keep pushing."
In the mug shot, Mars seems to be smiling from ear to ear, and when he was asked about it, he said "I have no idea . . . It was a picture," Us Magazine reports.
Mars went on to talk about his music, saying most of the songs on his album Unorthodox Jukebox are about sex.
"It feels good to sing about. It feels . . . sexy. It puts you in a sexy frame of mind,” he said. “It feels good to project. Sex is a great party starter."
One of those songs is “Locked Out of Heaven,” which he said of the success "That one shocked me. That it turned out the way it did.”
“I haven't done a song like that. And hopefully every album, I'll get that feeling. And shock the world! Shock the world!"
He also said of having hit songs, "You know how hard it is to write a big song? That s--t is hard, man. It's so hard to do. Might be one of the hardest things to ever do."
