29 January 2013, 11:12

The 'Girl On Fire' singer says she was surprised at how hilarious the US star was to work with.

Alicia Keys has hailed Bruno Mars as a "great comedian" after getting to work with the US star on a song from her new album 'Girl On Fire'.

The two artists wrote Alicia's song 'Tears Always Win' last year for her latest record, and the 'Brand New Me' singer has praised Bruno for being both an incredible artist and a surprisingly funny man.

"Yeah definitely," Alicia told Capital, when asked whether she is a big fan of the 'Locked Out Of Heaven' singer. "I believe this is like his second record and I think that he's a really great artist and writer as well. 

"He's a very unique personality, he had me laughing the whole time," Alicia recalled. "He's really funny! 

"I didn't expect him to be that funny but he's like borderline comedian," she added. "So not only is he a great writer and a great artist but he's also a great comedian."

Alicia Keys was speaking to Capital fresh from playing US President Obama's inauguration ceremony last week.
