Bruno Mars and Ellie Goulding reveal their first jobs

Music stars including Bruno Mars and Ellie Goulding have revealed their first ever jobs.

The singers may be living a glamorous lifestyle of fame and fortune but it seems their beginnings were a little more modest.

Speaking to MTV, Bruno Mars said that his first taste of employment was as a DJ in a shopping centre - but he ended up breaking the vinyl. He said:

"I was 18-years-old. The worst job I ever had was I applied to be a DJ at the mall at the Beverly Center. The only problem was I don't know how to DJ. So I showed up to the Beverly Center with my friend's records and I broke their record player."

'Halcyon' star Ellie Goulding meanwhile said that her first job was cleaning toilets in a village pub. She said:

"Well I grew up in a village and down the road was a pub called the Royal George and I used to clean the toilets. Men's toilets, mainly."
