In Dublin’s Olympia Theatre on Wed­nes­day, I was re­minded what it feels like to have a celebrity crush. Teenage girls as far as the eye could see oohed, aa­hed and screamed at Bruno Mars’s ev­ery move­ment. It was rather as­ton­ish­ing that they sur­vived the night, so fired up were they by his crotch thrust­ing and ref­er­ences to his “car­rot”. Teen idol­a­try aside, it’s easy to see how Mars’s star has so quickly gone into or­bit: the tunes are catchy, the beats slick and, man, can this kid move. In fact, the teenagers may not be the only ones with a bit of a crush. We heart Bruno. 4eva. Words: Rose­mary Mac Cabe Pho­to­graph:
