The other night on FOX's hilarious Cleveland Show, Kanye West, Nicki Minaj, Bruno Mars, ?uestlove, and Will.i.am all appeared as guest stars on "Menace II Secret Society" - a controversial episode that is playing up the much-talked about Illuminati. The music stars are a part of the secret society (Kanye as 'Kenny West', his previous character) and Cleveland joins and helps.
I'm intrigued to sit down and watch the episode above. For those who did, what did you think of the hip hop illuminati episode?
Not only is Bruno Mars a short man but so is this track list to his album, Unorthodox Jukebox, is much shorter then him. The album will drop December 11th and the album will feature productions from Mark Ronson,Jeff Bhasker, Emile Haynie, Diplo, and more.
1. Young Girls
2. Locked Out of Heaven
6. When I Was Your Man
8. Show Me

10. If I Knew
Tonight, Bruno Mars pulled double duty as he was not only the musical guest on SNL, but also the show's host. He got to reveal his versatile side as a comedic actor tonight for the first time, while also doing the same musically. Unfortunately, many of the sketches fell short, save for Bruno as Devin, the Pandora intern (which showcased said versatility musically via satiric covers of Green Day, Katy Perry, and Michael Jackson to name a few) and the show's opening play off of this week's debate.
The two music performances from Bruno were two songs off his upcoming album, Unorthodox Jukebox. The first, above, is the current single "Locked Out Of Heaven", complete with a background dance ensemble to add to the entertainment. The latter, below, is the premiere of presumably the next single, "Young Girls". Mars slows it down, displays his vocal range and a unique storyline. I like the sound of this one as well. Watch the performances if you missed SNL tonight and be on the lookout for Unorthodox Jukebox on December 11th.
The first photo of Bruno Mars, Questlove, Will.i.am, & Nicki Minaj on the upcoming Cleveland Show can be seen above. Hah, it's always funny to see these big names as cartoon characters.
The premise is that Cleveland discovers a secret hip-hop society fronted by Kanye West. Bruno Mars, Questlove, will.i.am, and Nicki Minaj are seen wearing cloaks as part of the secret group that controls pop culture.
Hmm, what do you think of this concept? The episode airs on October 21st.
