There are celebrities who can’t manage to keep their personal and professional lives separate, and then there are those who stay high while lying low. If you want some uptown funk or 24k magic, Bruno Mars is your man. But, if you’re on the hunt for some personal drama, look elsewhere.
According to E! Online, the singer — who recently released his third studio album 24k Magic — avoids making outside noise to keep fans’ ears on his music alone. “Drama?” he asked in an interview. “I thought when we made it that means we’re drama-free. I don’t play that game. I don’t want to say something stupid and mess this all up.”
One notable way he keeps his personal life separate is by physically separating his home life from the limelight. To keep his personal life personal, Mars does not attend every glitzy party and if he does roll up to a bash, he won’t chronicle the night on Instagram. “I don’t take my phone, because I’m going to lose my mind,” the Versace on the Floor singer explained. Afterwards, he retreats to his multi-million dollar mansion with his girlfriend Jessica Caban. If you want inquire about a potential engagement, he might offer this simple answer, “She’s my best friend; my rock. What’s wrong with that? We’re just happy.”
Adele, who collaborated with Mars on her 2015 track All I Ask, follows a similar approach to her public persona. At the peak of her stardom in 2012, the British songstress stepped out of the spotlight to be a mother to her newborn. “People think I hate being famous and I don’t. I’m really frightened of it,” she said. “I think it’s really toxic and I think it’s really easy to be dragged into it.”
Bringing up her only child Angelo caused Adele to stay away for four years before returning to work. “That’s one of the main reasons that I’ve been away for so long,” she told journalist Matt Lauer last November. “Because I was like no, my kid is more important. My kid comes first, and my music comes second — and I come second.” Though her music talks about love, her relationship with partner Simon Konecki remains largely a mystery to the public.
Similarly, if there’s anyone who understands the benefits of lying low, it’s Beyoncé. The Grammy winner is usually selective of the events she attends and opts out of red carpet interviews. However, the Beautiful Liar crooner discreetly offers commentary on social media where she has full control. When public speculation and curiosity builds, she releases an album or hits the stage to quell or fuel fans’ desire for more.
And when that time comes around, she delivers her best. As Mars said, “She’s not joking around. She’s going to get onstage and show everybody why she’s the best every single time.”
