Bruno Mars Is 'Pinching Himself' After Grammy Nominations

November 28, 2017

Bruno Mars was pinching himself after it was revealed that he scored a total of six nominations for the 60th annual Grammy Awards, including three of the big categories for 24K Magic (Album of the Year), the album's title track (Record of the Year) and "That's What I Like" (Song of the Year).

Shortly after the announcement, Mars called into "Elvis Duran and the Morning Show" to gush about the love. "I don't know how to feel about it. I'm pinching myself right now," he said on the phone from Chile. "I wanna thank you guys for all the support you've given me all throughout the years, especially with this album ... this song. A lot of this has to do with you guys playing my music on the radio and giving it to the world and being so supportive. I'm so happy."

Mars went on to admit that he's worked so hard on the record and listened to "That's What I Like" for a year before he put it out and even questioned the quality of the track several times. "It's nice to feel 'Maybe I'm not crazy,'" he explained.
