(Amazing) Just the Way You Are

Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme!

Saturday 9: (Amazing) Just the Way You Are

Thanks to Smellyann for the song suggestion

1) This song is about a girl who can't accept how pretty she is. How do you respond to compliments? Do you accept them graciously, or do you get embarrassed?

2) Bruno says he takes inspiration from a variety of musical styles -- everything from rock to reggae to hip hop. What kind of music do you listen to most often?

3) Bruno's uncle was a professional Elvis impersonator, and as a little boy Bruno also performed on stage as the King. When you picture Elvis, do you think of early rock'n'roll Elvis from the 1950s, Technicolor Hollywood Elvis of the 1960s, or the rhinestone jumpsuit Elvis who performed in Las Vegas?

4) Bruno plays several instruments onstage, including piano, guitar and congas. What instruments can you play?

5) Bruno is touring all over the country this summer. What's the last concert you attended?

6) Unlike some other stars, Bruno doesn't demand a lot of luxuries on the road, but he did admit to TMZ that he insists Wet Wipes be provided for his dressing room. If you could ask your boss for anything, anything at all, to make your workplace more comfortable, what would you request?

7) Rumors are flying that Bruno might become a judge on American Idol. Are you an Idol fan? Do you watch any of the other "talent search" shows -- The Voice, America's Got Talent, The X Factor, etc.?

8) Bruno is an unapologetic cigarette smoker. Do you smoke? Have you quit? Or did you never start?
9) Billy Joel also had a hit with the title "Just the Way You Are." If we were going to do karaoke, which version would you sing -- Billy's or Bruno's?

Thanks so much for joining us again at Saturday: 9. As always, feel free to come back, see who has participated and comment on their posts. In fact sometimes, if you want to read & comment on everyone's responses, you might want to check back again tomorrow. But it is not a rule. We haven’t any rules here. Join us on next Saturday for another version of Saturday: 9, "Just A Silly Meme on a Saturday!" Enjoy your weekend!

Mine's up early, because... YOLO? (Who cares. Sometimes I forget to link it if I schedule the post in advance.) HAPPY WEEKEND! ♥

So I can never post a direct link because mine are always longer than the allowed 100 characters. Can that be changed? :D

Thanks SO much, this was fun!

Bex - I can't comment on your blog b/c it won't let me choose a profile. Ugh, I hate that, so I'll just comment on y'all's posts here if I can't comment directly on your post. Hope that's okay!

Right there with you on compliments and even the wedding thing! We eloped, too. :) The fun. concert looks great - awesome captures! With you on no TV too, fabulous! I don't smoke for the same reason as you, but my grandma. It's awful. Hideous. :( Great answers, girl!
