The 'Locked Out Of Heaven' star has been reminiscing about his days as a famous four year-old.
Bruno Mars says he was "f*****g great" at being an Elvis Presley impersonator in his childhood and says his school friends all treated him like Batman.
The 'When I Was Your Man' singer became the world's youngest impersonator of the 'Jailhouse Rock' singer at age 4 in his father's Hawaiian variety show, and says he had so much fun getting fame at such a young age
"I don't remember much, I probably couldn't even speak that much," Bruno reveals in his new GQ interview. "But I was f*****g great at it.
The 'Locked Out Of Heaven' singer admitted that after finding a degree of fame so early it was hard to stay focused at school, where he says children started treating him like a superhero.
"It was like turning into Batman," Bruno explained. "I'd go to school and kids are calling me Peter and we're playing baseball and kickball and s**t, and then, 'All right guys, I've got to to!', you put on a sequinned jumpsuit and all of a sudden you're Bruno, the world's youngest Elvis impersonator!"
