Bruno Mars not stressed over not getting Grammy album nod

NEW YORK (AP) - Bruno Mars' first album, "Doo-Wops & Hooligans" was nominated for album of the year at the Grammys. But his latest project "Unorthodox Jukebox" wasn't nominated for the honor, though it did pick up four other Grammy nods. Is he disappointed about not being up for best album this year? Hardly. Asked about being left off the list of finalists for album of the year, Mars laughed and said: "I'm good, man." He says if he "would have asked for anything more," he'd "be a jerk." Mars is up for two major awards: song and record of the year for the hit single "Locked Out of Heaven." Meanwhile, Mars says his days of churning out hits for other artists are pretty much over. He says he used to sell songs to other acts back when he was "struggling and hustling to pay rent." He says since he's doing better financially now, he doesn't want to treat his songwriting skills "like a sport."
