Black Celebrities Defend Grammy Winner Bruno Mars from Accusations of Cultural Appropriation

Pop megastar Bruno Mars has received the backing of several high-profile black celebrities after he was accused of culturally appropriating black music and profiting from it.

Yet Bruno Mars has an Album of the Year Grammy and Prince never won an Album of the Year Grammy,” she said.

The claims sparked fierce debate on Twitter, with many backing Sensei’s claims that Mars is guilty of cultural appropriation.

“So is it Bruno Mars fault that…he was influenced by BabyFace, Teddy Riley, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis…around the same time from a hip-hop side I was influenced by DJ Premier, Pete Rock, and The Beatminerz?” wrote the music producer 9th Wonder in another lengthy rant in Mars’s defense.
