First Jobs of Famous Musicians

American singer-songwriter and record producer Bruno Mars, born Peter Gene Hernandez, poses for a portrait on Monday, Nov. 5, 2012 in New York. Mars' recent appearance on “Saturday Night Live” was more like Saturday Night Fever: He says he had so much fun hosting the show that he'd be happy to do it again. "Whatever 'SNL' wants from me, they can always call me,” the smiling 27-year-old said in an interview Wednesday afternoon. “I don't know who told them I can act or anything 'cause I can't. I don't know what they saw. (But) whatever they need from me, they can get."  (Photo by Dan Hallman/Invision/AP)
