He's too hot - hot damn! Bruno Mars was forced to halt a gig in Glasgow when his stage lights caught fire.The US Grammy winner was four songs into his set at Glasgow Green when on-stage pyrotechnics apparently set the lighting rig ablaze.The flames were brought under control in eight minutes - so he didn't need to "call the po-lice and the fireman".As he returned to the stage, Mars improvised an a capella chorus of "We burned the stage down in Glasgow."
