Why Bruno Mars Wrote "Billionaire"

Why Bruno Mars Wants to Be a Billionaire

Bruno Mars partnered up with Travie McCoy to write and sing the hit song, "Billionaire." Here's what drove the crooner to write the song:

"The inspiration behind ‘Billionaire’ was, I was tired of spending half my day worrying about what I can and can’t spend on whatever. I wouldn’t have to worry about, you know, ‘I can’t afford to get breakfast, so I’ll wait until lunchtime to eat.’ If I was a billionaire, none of that would matter. I’d be eating diamond cereal."

The appeal behind never having to worry about money is definitely undeniable, but I can't help but thinking that with great wealth comes a whole other set of problems as well. Problems aside, if you were a billionaire, what kind of lavish items would you be enjoying?
