Saturday 9: (Amazing) Just the Way You Are

1) This song is about a girl who can't accept how pretty she is. How do you respond to compliments? Do you accept them graciously, or do you get embarrassed? I respond with a thank you and move on so I can get it over with.

2) Bruno says he takes inspiration from a variety of musical styles -- everything from rock to reggae to hip hop. What kind of music do you listen to most often? I listen to pop and rock most often

3) Bruno's uncle was a professional Elvis impersonator, and as a little boy Bruno also performed on stage as the King. When you picture Elvis, do you think of early rock'n'roll Elvis from the 1950s, Technicolor Hollywood Elvis of the 1960s, or the rhinestone jumpsuit Elvis who performed in Las Vegas? I think of the Comeback Elvis

4) Bruno plays several instruments onstage, including piano, guitar and congas. What instruments can you play? I play tambourine and other hand-held percussive instruments

5) Bruno is touring all over the country this summer. What's the last concert you attended? I don't remember the last concert but my next concert is in 19 days: STING!!

6) Unlike some other stars, Bruno doesn't demand a lot of luxuries on the road, but he did admit to TMZ that he insists Wet Wipes be provided for his dressing room. If you could ask your boss for anything, anything at all, to make your workplace more comfortable, what would you request? an assortment of chocolate

7) Rumors are flying that Bruno might become a judge on American Idol. Are you an Idol fan? Do you watch any of the other "talent search" shows -- The Voice, America's Got Talent, The X Factor, etc.? I was a rabid Idol fan until Simon left, although I did watch after that but have since lost interest... I do like The Voice but I didn't watch much this go 'round

8) Bruno is an unapologetic cigarette smoker. Do you smoke? Have you quit? Or did you never start? I was an occasional smoker who turned into a pack a day smoker and I have not had a smoke since December 27, 1998.

9) Billy Joel also had a hit with the title "Just the Way You Are." If we were going to do karaoke, which version would you sing -- Billy's or Bruno's? I would probably sing the Billy Joel song because I think it's more melodic

I would love to see a Sting concert someday. But my problem is that I hate crowds.

Sting... I can't think of him without contemplating "tantric" :) LOL


I agree, they lost too much when Simon left. He was a voice of reason.

Um, excuse me but since teachers are role models, they ARE NOT ALLOWED to smoke. I think it's a law in all 50 states.

Sting! The date will soon be upon us!

Hey, coming up on your 15th anniversary in December! Awesome!

And I'm becoming slightly envious of your Sting tix. However, like Diana, I do not like crowds.

I've been on Weight Watchers for two weeks and all I can think about is chocolate....

Paula said...

I quit smoking sometime around that same time!
