Bebe Rexha: Bruno Mars is flawless
Bebe Rexha thinks Bruno Mars is "flawless".
The 27-year-old singer has revealed she "fell in love" with the '24k Magic' hitmaker when she saw his Elvis Presley impersonations on YouTube, and hopes to talk to him about "a possible collaboration" at some point in the future.
Speaking to the Daily Star newspaper, the 'Me, Myself & I' hitmaker said: "We just recently saw Bruno Mars at the Hollywood Bowl and he was incredible. I hope to bump into him and talk to him about a possible collab [collaboration].
"He's just so talented as a performer, as an artist, as a writer, so incredible. His live performances are flawless. I've been a big fan of his for years. I remember seeing all the videos of him as an Elvis impersonator when he was younger. Go on YouTube and look it up, it's amazing. He was so cute and ever since then I fell in love, I was like, 'That's it he's amazing.' "
And the 31-year-old singer isn't the only star Bebe has her sights set on either, as she previously admitted she aspires to be like Kanye West.
Bebe - who hosted the MTV European Music Awards at the Ahoy Rotterdam arena in Rotterdam, Netherlands, on Sunday night (06.11.16) - said: "I view myself as a male artist. I'm very tomboy and I'm inspired by hip hop artists. I want to be Kanye and do what he does musically. I'm very fearless."
Meanwhile, the blonde beauty - who originally wrote Eminem and Rihanna's song 'Monster' for herself - says growing up in New York has made her thick-skinned and able to stick up for herself.
She said previously: "When you grow up in New York, you're female and your parents come from a different country [Albania], you have to toughen up and be like one of the boys."
Ahead of her MTV EMAs hosting debut, Bebe took to her Instagram account to share a photo of herself backstage as she excitedly prepared for the "biggest" night of her life.
She captioned the pic: "30 mins until the biggest night of my life. Watch the @mtvema live around the world. Hosting and performing #IGotYou for the first time. (sic)"
