Bruno Mars has premiered the music video for his brand new single Locked Out of Heaven taken from his forthcoming album Unorthodox Jukebox.
Directed by Cameron Duddy (who was also behind the camera on "The Lazy Song") the video is simple and stripped, featuring some party scenes and filled with some old school VHS visual effects.
Mars explained the concept:
"The concept is just old-fashioned fun. No story line, it's not me
singing to a girl, you get a good sense of what you're going to get
It's very VHS-y. I love that man, it takes me back to
my childhood, when the tracking is off and the color is off, there's a
beauty in that. You'd have to stand by the TV with, like, aluminum foil
all over you."
Most of the original cast of Melrose Place, one of the biggest shows of the 90s, reunited last month for a photoshoot that is featured on the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly magazine.
Popular faces such as Heather Locklear or Marcia Cross, saw each other for the first time in years and did some catching up with their lives and careers.
The cast looks extremely good considering its been 13 years since the show got canceled by Fox.
Courtney Thorne-Smith remembered the good old days filming Melrose:
“We did great at first, and then not so great, and it didn’t get great
again until Heather came on. That’s when the show really took off. She
brought a lot of life to it. The show had been about eight kids trying
to make it. When Heather came in, the show became this soap about crazy
things happening — love triangles, relationships, drama!”
The latest issue ofEntertainment Weekly is available now and it also features other popular reunions such as the cast of Clueless or Arrested Development among others!

Bruno Mars has been busy in the studio recording his sophomore album, Unorthodox Jukebox, the follow-up to his successfull debut album Doo-Woops & Hooligans which spawned two number one hit singles.
The first single taken from this new release is Locked Out Of Heaven, a track produced by Mark Ronson (Amy Winehouse) which is reminiscent of the signature sound of The Police.
Just recently Mars spoke to Billboard magazine about the new album:
"This is me going into the studio and recording and writing whatever I
want. This album represents my freedom. I've had big record label presidents look me in the face and say,
'Your music sucks, you don't know who you are, your music is all
over the place, and we don't know how to market this stuff. Pick a
lane and come back to us.
That was disgusting to me,
because I'm not trying to be a circus act. I listen to a lot of
music and I want to have the freedom and luxury to walk into a
studio and say, 'Today I want to do a hip-hop, R&B, soul or rock
Unorthodox Jukebox isdue Dec. 11 on Atlantic Records.
