Bruno Mars Arrested in Vegas for Drug Possession

Hotel security found narcotics in Bruno Mars' bathroom Sunday, according to SPIN. He was arrested at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. Apparently he's discovered that it's not so easy being in the spotlight all the time.

The breakout hitmaker is scheduled to release his new album Doo-Wops and Hooligans on October 5, so this bad press isn't coming at the best time for him.

He performed at MTV's VMA's just a week ago, plus he recently played a headlining gig for the first time, so the pressure is on for Mars. We'll see how he handles all the pressure when his album drops. Hopefully he won't slip into the drug abuse that his good friend, "Billionaire" singer Travie McCoy of Gym Class Heroes, once did.
