Criticism

Cultural Appropriation

Since 2017, Bruno Mars has been accused of cultural appropriation on numerous occasions. As a person of Puerto Rican, Filipino and Jewish heritage, many see his use of music created by African American artists as appropriation.

On June 26th, 2017, ahead of Bruno Mars opening performance at the BET awards, writer Jenn M. Jackson posted a Twitter [1] accusing stating that Mars was appropriation black culture. She writes:

"I really need y'all to stop with this Bruno Mars praise and be more critical about the ways we understand appropriation. Bruno Mars does not identify as Black. Let's get that clear at the outset. He is a non-Black person of color (POC) who has recently decided that singing Funk music is economically productive. These claims that Bruno Mars is "bringing Funk back" are erasive to Black Funk artists who pioneered the tradition. FUNK. NEVER. LEFT. Yes, he gives "credit" to Funk artists on occasion. He also has a primarily white audience which has no memory or care for Black artists. In Bruno's case, 'bringing Funk back' essentially means, "Funk was a Black thing and now I gave it to white people." That's appropriation. I need us to stop relaxing our critical lens to anti-Blackness and appropriation when it is a non-Black POC harming us. The Bruno Mars praise is also patriarchal cause some of y'all were giving Eminem, Justin Timberlake, and Robin Thicke passes too. Stop it. Taking our shit and repackaging it for white people is not innovation. Even if these non-Black ppl sing well, it's appropriation. Period.

Sidelined Chris Martin

Sidelined Chris Martin is a nickname given to the lead singer of the British rock band Coldplay during their performance at the Super Bowl 50 halftime show on February 7th, 2016. Despite being billed as the headliner of the prestigious event, many viewers at home felt that the English singer-songwriter was upstaged by the sheer star power of his American co-performers, Beyonce and Bruno Mars, which quickly gave birth to a slew of jokes mocking Martin as the "third wheel" on stage.
