He’s known for his high-octane performances… But Bruno Mars is about to get animated in a different way.
The 26-year-old part-Puerto Rican singer-songwriter will be appearing as a character on Fox’s The Cleveland Show.
In the episode titled “Menace II Society,” Mars will be joined by Kanye West, The Roots drummer ?uestlove, Nicki Minaj and Black Eyed Peas frontman Will.i.am.
“We have a couple of original songs with Kanye and Will and Bruno [Mars], I mean, all of them, it was great,” says the show’s executive producer Rich Appel.
The episode depicts the guest stars as members of the “rap illuminati,” who control pop culture.
“Cleveland inadvertently breaks into it and then it’s how he will either bring them down or they’ll bring him down,” adds Appel.
No word yet on when the episode is slated to premiere.
