Is Bruno Mars a cultural appropriator or not?More

"Bruno Mars as an example is an awkward one because he has paid homage but that doesn't discredit that he can still benefit from the ambiguity", one Twitter user wrote.

"He takes pre-existing work and he just completely, word-for-word recreates it, extrapolates it", he adds, before comparing the '24K Magic' star to his self-confessed inspirations Michael Jackson and Prince.

"I've made boom-beats.forever.there's still a large part of the population of people saying 'no one wants to hear old school 90s sounding hip-hop.' I continue to stay on my path, knowing that there is generation of people that needs to be exposed to the feeling", he began tweeting early Monday (March 12) morning. Elvis Presley, who became famous by performing songs written by black artists, is considered by many to be a cultural appropriator.

During my ten years in the music industry, I wrote for many urban artists, including songs that charted on Billboard.

Furthermore, people were quick to add that Mars has frequently given credit to black-dominated genres, like funk and soul, and its musicians for allowing him to perform.

Since then, Mars has incorporated R&B, funk, new jack swing and more into his music, racking up two Super Bowl appearances and 10 Grammy awards along the way.

Mars himself remained silent throughout the debate, though ever since attaining fame, he has consistently spoken about the role black music played in his formation as an artist - and that he doesn't think it gets enough recognition. "So, in my world, black music means everything".

"I'm a child raised in the '90s", he continued. "Do you always ❤️", Grammy-nominated rapper Rapsody tweeted.

While Mars collaborates with many African American artists, such as CeeLo Green and B.o.B., he isn't African American.
