Bruno Mars Remembers Namesake And WWE Legend

Bruno Mars has sent his condolences to the family of WWE legend Bruno Sammartino, the man who is the inspiration for his stage name. "Sending love and prayers to Bruno Sammartino’s family. He was such a gentleman when I met him & really meant a lot to my father & I. RIP," his tweet said.

Sammartino died Wednesday at the age of 82. The "Italian Superman" held numerous titles and was the WWE’s longest-reigning world champion which ESPN says he held for nearly eight consecutive years.

Mars was born Peter Gene Hernandez, but was nicknamed "Bruno" by his father because he was a huge fan of the wrestler. His dad said the inspiration for the nickname was because Mars was a "chunky" baby – and Sammartino was about 275 pounds at his prime wrestling weight.

The two Brunos met last August during a 24K Magic World Tour pit-stop in Pittsburgh and the singer shared a photo on Instagram.

Destiny's Child Alum Michelle Williams Is Engaged

Former Destiny’s Child member Michelle Williams is engaged. The 37-year-old singer said in an interview with People that she said yes to her boyfriend, pastor and pro sports chaplain Chad Johnson, in March after a year of dating.

Johnson, who has served as chaplain for the Pittsburgh Steelers and L.A. Dodgers, proposed to Williams with a five-carat engagement ring. The couple plan to marry at an intimate, black-tie wedding in the summer.

"Think James Bond-meets-Midsummer Night’s Dream – with a little hood in it," Johnson told the magazine.

"It’s gonna be very traditional," he added. "We’re doing black-tie. We want it to be small and intimate and very private."

Williams confirmed news of her engagement in a tweet Thursday.

"That time I got engaged March 21st and @people is telling y’all alllll about it!! Thank you @people and @nelson_jeff!!!" she wrote.

Williams said Johnson has the approval of former Destiny’s Child members Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland and Beyoncé’s mom, Tina Knowles. She gushed about her fiancé in an Instagram post Tuesday.

"That amazing feeling of getting off the stage, running back to the dressing room and I see someone standing there waiting for me!" the star captioned a photo of of herself after a concert.

"I’ve waited yeeeeeeears for someone who could come in to my world and be CONFIDENT and NOT insecure, love who I love and genuinely be there for people!!" she said. "I LOVE YOU @chadjohnson77!!! #HoldOn #LoveIsComing."
