Bruno Mars unveils he was kicked out of high school band. Yes it’s hard to believe that Bruno Mars – the man with perfect pitch and a ridiculous amount of hits — was ever kicked out of high school band. But that’s what he claimed on Monday night (September 5) while conversing with a fan on Twitter.

After seeing a video of a college marching band taking on a slew of his hits (seriously, you’ve got to watch it), he mused about the irony of it all. “So dope,” Mars tweeted. “They really killed this! The ironic part is I got kicked out of band in high school.😒 So to see this brings a huge smile to my soul.”
