n a word, yes. If we were to go by the definition used in our society, Bruno Mars does fit the description. Mars adapts/borrows/steals elements from Black music to create his sound. But that’s not necessarily a bad thing when we look at him, or music in general. Musicians have always borrowed from each other and used other artists as an influence to enhance their music. The only reason I see people getting on Bruno Mars’ case is that he isn’t Black.
