Although Bruno Mars now has a catchy music collection, a large following, and a lavish lifestyle, he comes from humble beginnings.
By humble, I mean homeless.
Times were hard and dark for the family, made up of Bruno, his father and his brother. He had divorced parents. They lived in an austere building in the center of a birding zoo. There was no bathroom, forcing them to cross the park to find a toilet.
Then the park, of which his father was the guard, was closed. Bruno and his family slept wherever they could, from the top of buildings to the backs of vehicles.
“My dad was just the king of finding these little places we should never have stayed,” Mars reported on a broadcast.
The trio quickly found a one-bedroom cabin to live in. All Mars really had around this time was his brother, his father, and his optimism. His traumatic experiences simply made him try harder to achieve his goal.
