Bruno Mars is happy to 'weird a couple people out' with his new album.
The singer is preparing for the release of his new record Unorthodox Jukebox next week.
Bruno views the new songs he created as nothing short of a musical metamorphosis.
"It's not a risk; at the end of the day, it's me, so it's like either you like me or you don't," he told MTV News.
"I don't know if I've earned that. I don't know what people are going to think of this album; but I do know it's me, it's who I am. I am all over the place, because I'm a producer... I think it's a good thing to weird a couple people out and scare a couple people.
"Because this is the artistry now, this is evolving, and I've always looked up to artists that evolve. Michael Jackson, Kanye West, every album sounds like something different; it's because you listen to new things, you're seeing new things, you're feeling new emotions, you're dating a new girl. Everything is always different, so it always has to change and evolve."
Unorthodox Jukebox will hit the shelves December 11.
