Bruno Mars indulged in a bizarre delicacy during his trip to Thailand this week by munching on scorpion kebabs.

The “Treasure” hitmaker was in the country’s capital Bangkok for a concert on his Moonshine Jungle tour on Thursday when he decided to use a rare day off to explore the city.

He took in a martial arts fight, went on a CD shopping trip at a bootleg market, and then topped off the day with a snack of toasted scorpion.

However, the weird meal didn’t go down too well with the singer and it left him nursing a stomach ache for the rest of the day.

Mars posted a picture of the snack on Twitter.com on Friday, alongside the message, “Stomach felt a little weird after I ate this.”
