Billy V: Bruno Mars, Taylor and John John?

Posted: Updated:

(Hawaii News Now) - From CNN; they are saying that in the grand history of celebrity mug shots - which includes Nicole Richie's smiling and Paris Hilton's "did you get my good side?" head tilt - Bruno Mars' September 2010 photo is a standout.

The "Locked Out Of Heaven" singer had been booked on a drug charge in Las Vegas at the time. Instead of doing the stoic face of someone in trouble with the law, Mars smiled like he was at the Grammy Awards.

When asked the singer why he was grinning upon his arrest, Bruno said, "I have no idea," he responded, laughing. "It was a picture."

It's also one image that Mars would like to forget. As he told Piers Morgan last year, he's been trying to move forward ever since his arrest. So far, his attempt to leave the past in the past is working. Mars just notched his first No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart with his 2012 album, "Unorthodox Jukebox".

Sources close to Taylor Swift have denied the claims that the hit maker songwriter is dating Hawaiian surfer John John Florence. It was reported late yesterday that she was attempting to give love another chance and had been text messaging the hunky blonde surfer

Rumours of a romance were fueled when John John was asked about the relationship on Australian television. 'Uh, I'm not supposed to comment about that,' was the response. Smiling, he added: 'Yeah, you know, it's kind of a secret thing going on right now. Can't bust it out in the public just yet.'
