Bruno Mars isn’t too fond of social media—he once complained of changing his Twitter icon for over an hour—but has found his passion in something else: digital collages.

The “24K Magic” singer has taken much pride in his new skill. “My collage skills are gettin pretty epic!” he said, referring to a collage of a customized jersey he received during his tour:

Fans poked fun at his new hobby, with some estimating that he may have taken at least four hours to make it.

Besides his collage-making skills, his photography was criticized. One noted that he finally took a clear picture.

Another fan hoped to teach him something a bit more advanced: gifs.

“y’all wait until @brunomars learns he can add more than one pic in a tweet,” one netizen said.

“Wait what?” was Mars’ innocent reply to a feature he may not have figured out yet.

Despite the playful banter, the words may have hurt him a little: “There’s nothing wrong with my collages! I’ve received thousands of compliments,” said the multi-talented artist.

In the end, he admitted defeat: in a Twitter Q&A, he was asked to tell a secret. “I’m not really that good at making Twitter collages,” lamented Mars.

There there, Bruno. Between being able to sing, dance, play a number of instruments, and win multiple Grammy awards, collage-making skills might have to take a backseat.  /ra
