“His”tory has been made in what’s normally a “her”storical realm. Neo-crooner Bruno Mars is only the 10th man in the magazine’s history to grace the cover of Playboy.

Mars appears on the cover of the April 2012 issue, which celebrates sex and music. Don’t worry, gentleman subscribers. Miss April Raquel Pomplun shares the cover nod with him. She is hot and all tangled up with the singer, who is brandishing his guitar while she sits between his legs.

The cover tag is ‘Bruno Mars: Makin’ the Ladies Sweat’ so we’re bound to learn a little somethin’ somethin’ about Mars’ love life, or at least see some stylin’ photos of him that would make the ladies hot and bothered. Inside, the always well-dressed and better-coiffed singer is featured in a fashion spread and an interview.

Congrats to Mars on this major coup. He’ll probably pick up a lot of new male fans as a result of this nod, since it’s not often that a dude appears on the cover of Playboy. Who better to represent the musical contingent than the ever-popular, modern day version of a Rat Packer?
