Watch: Bruno Mars hits back at his 'Super Bowl' critics on 'Ellen'...

It's been little over a week since Bruno Mars delivered a showstopping performance at the Super Bowl Halftime Show. A spectacle which became the most-watched halftime show in Super Bowl history with 115.3 million viewers (yas!) The pint-sized crooner visited Monday’s 'Ellen DeGeneres Show' to discuss his historic performance. He criticizes an NY article which berates him for not being a big enough star for the Super Bowl, not being in the tabloids and not having a fragrance.

I thought an artist's talent alone was enough to guarantee him a spot. The only thing I agree with is that he was too new an artist to do it. But at the end of the day he shut the naysayers up and gave a very inspiring speech to others trying to follow their dreams while being put down.
