Here’s Definitive Proof That Bruno Mars Is A Middle-Aged Woman


Microsoft unveiled its #HowOldRobot last week, a service that instantly guesses the age and gender of anyone in any photo you upload. As you can imagine, people had a lot of fun with it. But we are nothing if not scientists at UPROXX Music; we’re interested less in jokes and more in how accurate this damn thing is. So we tested it out on some prominent musicians.

Nailed it.

Not bad at all, though we wouldn’t have been surprised if #HowOldRobot guessed 30. Look at that handsome face. Look at those steely eyes.

Ed Sheeran

Real Gender: Male | Real Age: 24

I had no idea age and gender even applied to hobbits, tbh.

Pharrell Williams

Real Gender: Male | Real Age: 42

Ha! You can fool us mortal humans with your age-defying appearance, Pharrell, but you can’t fool #HowOldRobot.

Taylor Swift

Where do you think the album name 1989 came from, #HowOldRobot?

Kendrick Lamar

Real Gender: Male | Real Age: 27

Perhaps the pressure of following up good kid, m.A.A.d city added some stress lines to Kendrick’s face?

Dave Grohl

Real Gender: Male | Real Age: 46

Hey, the rock n’ roll lifestyle ages everyone a little more quickly.

Gwen Stefani

Real Gender: Female | Real Age: 45

Definitive proof that Gwen Stefani is a goddess we should all worship and treasure.

Steven Tyler

Real Gender: Male, supposedly | Real Age: 67

OK, this is where I begin to call shenanigans. That mustache may fool a bot, but it can’t fool me — Steven Tyler is clearly a 400-year-old piratess.


Real Gender: Female | Real Age: 56

Nope. Let’s move on before Madonna hears her name in passing and does something desperate for attention.

Ariana Grande

Real Gender: Female | Real Age: 21

Do you know anything about Ariana Grande, #HowOldRobot? First of all, she’s clearly a middle-school cheerleader. Second of all, she will literally hiss napalm at you for adding 11 years to her age.

Bruno Mars

Go home, #HowOldRobot, you’re drunk.
