Bruno Mars gave me a silk scarf

I am obsessed with Hawaii. Many childhood trips to paradise have pretty much ruined me for any other vacation destination and have given me a sometimes embarrassing soft spot for anything Hawaii-related.

Jack Johnson. Tropical designs for my car seat covers, checkbook, shower curtain. Any movie that’s set on the islands. And now there’s Bruno Mars.

It’s not uncommon knowledge at this point that the petite, Grammy-nominated pop star hails from the 50th state, where he used to be the world’s youngest Elvis impersonator. He even did a cameo lip curl in the 1992 movie Honeymoon in Vegas.

I remember it. I’m pretty sure it hit theaters soon after I went onstage with Bruno. Read on for a picture.
