Christmas will be different without music from Michael Bublé who has announced that he is retiring from the industry.
The talented Canadian-Italian singer did his last interview and explained that he is going to focus on his family — wife Luisana Lopilato; and sons, Noah and Elias, and daughter Vida.
The “Haven’t Met You Yet” artist is leaving the entertainment world after Noah’s battle with cancer.
He shared his reason for the move by saying: “I don’t have the stomach for it anymore. The celebrity narcissism. This is my last interview. I’m retiring. I’ve made the perfect record, and now I can leave at the very top.”
The “Save the Last Dance for Me” singer stated: “I decided I’ll never read my name again in print, never read a review, and I never have. I decided I’d never use social media again, and I never have. It’s been such a difficult exercise. But my whole being’s changed. My perception of life. Why are we here? Is this all there is? Because if this is all there is, there has to be something bigger.”
Bublé said this about the painful experience: “You just want to die. I don’t even know how I was breathing. My wife was the same, and even though I was the stronger of the two of us, I wasn’t strong. My wife was … I’m sorry, I can’t make it to the end of that sentence.”
He added: “I don’t know if I can even get through this conversation without crying. And I’ve never lost control of my emotions in public.”
Fans told him that they will miss his jazzy voice and wished him well.
One person said: “Hopefully this isn’t goodbye forever. But I understand stepping away. The family is always #1. You only get to be there for their childhood once.”
Another supporter stated: “Good luck Micheal… no shame in hanging up your microphone! Families more important and any real fan would understand… just so glad I had the opportunity to see you at the O2… a moment I will cherish forever!”
Bublé has been dreaming of becoming a famous singer since he was two.
His 10th studio and last album, Love, will drop on November 16.
