Bruno has had in recent years a drug problem and he told GQ “I’m not gonna preach that I’m a role model,” he says. “I’m a – musician! But I’ve learned people are watching, so don’t do nothing stupid.” “My jump shot sucks,” he added.
Bruno was caught by police after a janitor complained that it was taking drugs, hidden in a toilet in the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas. Police, who came to the scene, he found that he was in possession of cocaine.
Bruno admits he is a big fan of Elvis. “I watch the best. I’m a big fan of Elvis. I’m a big fan of 1950s Elvis when he would go on stage and scare people because he was a force and girls would go nuts! You can say the same thing for Prince or The Police. It’s just guys who know that people are here to see a show, so I watch those guys and I love studying them because I’m a fan.”
