Bruno Mars Says 'Life Has Changed' Since Death of Mother: I'd Trade Music to Have Her Back
By Jackie Willis
Bruno Mars admits that the sudden death of his mother had a huge impact on him.
Bernadette San Pedro Bayot died of a brain aneurysm in June 2013 when she was just 55. "My life has changed," he tells the February issue of Latina magazine. "She’s more than my music. If I could trade music to have her back, I would."
Despite living in poverty, Mars insisted that he has fond memories of where he was brought up. "We had it all. We had each other," the "24K Magic" singer added. "It's OK we don't have electric today. We're gonna figure it out."
