It’s hard to imagine a fan refusing to jump on stage with his or her favorite singer. Yet one ticket holder did just that during a Bruno Mars concert. And the stylish singer didn’t handle rejection well.
Now, his label is trying to expunge the incident from the web, a moment that casts Mars in an unflattering light.
Last week, Warner Music Group filed a complaint with YouTube to remove a video showing singer Bruno Mars being turned down by a fan who he demanded come onstage twice at his show at Oracle Arena. The reason cited by YouTube was a copyright violation, but the truth may lie elsewhere.
The evidence: several video clips from the same concert are still accessible on YouTube, but the one showing Mars losing his cool at the woman — including hurling a four-letter word at her and demanding, “Get your a** to the front of the stage, girl!” — has no music and has been taken down.
NBC notes that the clip in question didn’t feature any copywritten material that would back up the label’s charge.
