Bruno Mars proved that he has indeed located the Fountain of Youth when he took to Instagram on Wednesday, June 21, to share a throwback photo of himself as a toddler. The crazy part? The Grammy winner, 31, looks practically identical to his adorable baby pic.
Bruno posted a black-and-white photo from his upbringing in Honolulu, HI, in which he’s seen sitting on top of a box in the back of a car. Not only has his style been on point since he was a little boy (that tiny polo is #fashiongoals, TBH), it appears as though the pop star has always rocked an incredible head of hair.
“When you're too impatient for Throwback Thursday so you fully embrace Way Back Wednesday,” the “24K Magic” singer wrote alongside the ‘gram. “#1989”
This isn’t the first time Bruno has posted a snap from his childhood. Back in April, he uploaded an insanely cute pic of himself dressed as Elvis Presley. Though he didn’t provide a caption at the time, the recording artist — who was known locally as “Little Elvis” and often impersonated him throughout his adolescence — previously opened up about how the King of Rock has inspired his career.
“The biggest thing is the command [he had] on stage — how [he could] control the crowd and the band. I think there’s a performance of Elvis on the Ed Sullivan Show where he does ‘Hound Dog.’ At the end he slows it down, and — to me — it looked like an improv moment, not like something they rehearsed. It was like [Elvis] saw girls [in the audience] freaking out and said to himself: ‘Watch me slow it down — and then really go nuts,'” he told the San Diego Tribune in 2014. “And he slows it down at the end and [then] starts his little dance, and he had them!”
