April 29 is arguably the most important day on the internet. Why? Because it's the day that a not-yet-famous Bruno Mars looked surprised to see Pete Wentz, the bassist of a band called Fall Out Boy, which is currently far less famous than Bruno Mars. In this timeless image, the history of 21st-century music is told.
Everyone online loves the photo, for obvious reasons—there's something so innocent about Bruno standing aside as a pop star stares meaningfully into a camera lens. But was Bruno actually "surprised" or "excited" or "shocked" to see Wentz, as so many people describe it? Not according to an interview he gave on 104.3 MYFM this week. I guess it's true: We really can't have nice things.
