Ronson: Me and Mars 'power couple'

Mark Ronson has said he loves being labelled a "power couple" with Bruno Mars, because he thinks the singer is the best performer of his generation.

Producer Mark worked with Bruno on Uptown Funk, the current number one in the UK and the US, and told Billboard it gave him a warm, fuzzy feeling to be connected to the star.

He said: "When you're going on tour and you get to play these songs that you wrote and get the thing from the crowd, that is fun. But when you're standing next to somebody like Bruno Mars - probably, maybe the greatest male live performer-entertainer of his generation - there's no need to try and claw some of the spotlight for yourself.

"There was some MTV thing that (called us) 'Pop's new power couple'. I just wrote him an email. I was like, 'Is it weird that I get a nice feeling when someone calls us a power couple?

"As if we're Barry Diller and Diane von Furstenberg or something. Do we need a name - like Brark Manson?'."
