    "Just listen to the music," exclaims Bruno Mars while sitting in the studio. "If you like it, then let's go!"

    Bruno's philosophy is quite old school. He's not worried about appealing to the trend-of-the-moment or how many iTunes downloads he's got. Instead, he just gets in the studio and goes for it. That approach has led to some magic for Bruno though—just peep the hooks on B.o.B's "Nothin' On You" and Travie McCoy's "Billionaire," they're both sung by Mr. Mars. However, his debut EP, It's Better If You Don't Understand showcases even more of that magic, especially on the Cee Lo Green (Gnarls Barkley) and B.o.B feature "The Other Side."

    Bruno laughs, "Cee Lo said it best, 'Music is not math. It's science. You keep mixing the stuff up until it blows up on you, or it becomes this incredible potion.'"

    There's no truer statement; get drinkin'…

    Bruno Mars sat down for an exclusive video interview with ARTISTdirect.com editor and Dolor author Rick Florino about It's Better If You Don't Understand, songwriting and more wisdom from Cee Lo.
