Bruno Mars: I sing like a fly

Bruno Mars felt like a "mosquito singing" when he recorded the Twilight theme tune last year.

The 26-year-old enjoyed a string of hits with his debut album Doo-Wops & Hooligans and is currently promoting second album Unorthodox Jukebox, out in December.

He recorded the single It Will Rain for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 in 2011, but says he was not comfortable with the final mix of the track.

"I felt like I was a mosquito singing," Bruno explained to Billboard magazine.

"I don't want that to happen again."

The Just the Way You Are singer debuted his eagerly-anticipated new single Locked out of Heaven - taken from his second album - yesterday.

The star explained how important it is to him that his new material reflects his personality.

"This is me going into the studio and recording and writing whatever I want," he revealed.

"This album represents my freedom."

Bruno announced the completion of his second album to his 12 million Twitter followers last month.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aquarius:

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
