Serious jail time could be on the horizon for singer Bruno Mars. TMZ.com is reporting that the “Just The Way You Are” vocalist has been charged with one felony count of possession of a controlled substance stemming from his arrest in Las Vegas last month. The singer, whose real name is Peter Hernandez, was arrested at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on September 19th after a bathroom attendant told security that he saw Mars take a “baggie of white powdery substance” into one of the bathroom stalls. Mars could spend up to four years in jail if convicted.
Bruno Mars’ new album “Doo-Wops & Hooligans” arrives in stores tomorrow. It features his song, “Just The Way You Are,” which is currently at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. Mars is also slated to perform on this weekend’s edition of NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.” “Glee” actress Jane Lynch will serve as host.
