Go Bruno! I love his music. I would have been okay with Kendrick Lamar winning too but I see why they chose Bruno instead.

Bruno Mars looks like a transgender woman to male.

The jury is still hung on whether he was born a man. No pun intended.

It's about time Bruno Mars has been recognized for his multi-talented person he is.

Long overdue.

Congratulations on a long over due recongnition. He earned it.

I'm torn on this. Mars is talented, but if he were a young Black man doing that same music it would have won a couple of awards in the r&b category, but never ALBUM of the YEAR! What he is doing is the most generic r&b ever. The souls of r&b Marvin Gaye, Luther, etc. would have never won that award. Marvin I believe only one won grammy, after he died? That's why I can't take these awards seriously. I mean Beyonce about to beat Arethat Franklin with the most Grammys for a Black singer. I believe they are neck and neck. Also, why are there still award shows in 2018? lol. They need to just show the videos announce the awards online and call it a day. The ratings go down in the dumps further each year.

^^^^Good points however what burns me is that Bruno Mars ripped off Roger Troutman and Zapp’s sound completely including the beat for 24K and didn’t give him props. Listen to “More Bounde To The Ounce”.
I’m happy for Bruno. But if it had been a brother all the awards would never have happened for 24K.

Bruno take a great look into your crystal grammy and see your future... killing your moms, having millions and millions of dollars, the fame, then...oh no that was Kanye. Same ending though.

Bruno has the looks that they consider more modern and marketable (racially ambiguous). Another example, Cardi B.

Bruno Mars is a recycled gimmick. He literally just copies the sound, style, and image of 80’s and 90’s R&B and I would be ok with that if he put his own spin on it but that’s not what he does. When was the last time a black artist doing R&B swept any awards show? Hell even when MJ (one of the people Bruno directly copies) was at his prime the Grammys didnt show MJ the type of love they show Bruno, Adele, or Taylor Swift.

STFU with that use to be and black if..... I like Mars, at least he has talent. Just say nothing or thanks and keep it pushing. Niggas are the most negative MF on the earth. Small wonder we are broken!

Someone said although Bruno is talented, those songs and album came out in 2016. Why now?

Just an observation said...

Bruno Mars .....yeeeesssss! Mr. Finesse 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽

I'm not here for this non black motherfukka getting rich off of my people's music. Fuck this cornball tribute act. He is not an innovator. All he does is regurgitate music from past artist that did it better than he did. Leave my black music alone you hobbit!!!!

This man has "feel good" music, which is refreshing considering a lot of music today is rather depressing and latches on to people's sunken place. Hell, even the older people like him.
Congrats, Bruno!!!

Bruno Mars is a black man. He looks like a black man. He even says he is Black. Why are we denying his Blackness??? Part/half/qtr/one drop=You are black. Who are these trolls in here trying to extinguish the OBVIOUS Blackness of Bruno? A blind man can see this man is Black. WTF???

BRUNO MARS IS RIPPING OFF 80s R&B BANDS. He is not original. AT ALL.

The 80s R&B Bands did it better than he could EVER hope to do.
