According to multiple reports, Michael Bublé is not retiring, contrary to the mainstream narrative over the past week. Fans of the singer will be pleased to hear that the 43-year-old crooner isn’t “going anywhere,” explained his representative in a statement to Us Weekly.
The spokesperson’s comments came shortly after an interview published with The Daily Mail in which Michael insinuated that he was hanging up his microphone for good.
Just as a refresher, Bublé said during the conversation that he was retiring because his newest record is his magnum opus, and he can finally leave, now that he’s at the “very top.”
Bublé’s newest album, Love, is set for release on the 16th of November, Friday. On Twitter, many of Mike’s fans dished on his comments, stating that it would be sad to see him go.
“Michael Bublé is retiring, I am sobbing,” one person wrote, and another added that holiday music would be forever changed. As fans of the Grammy Award winner know, his son was diagnosed with liver cancer back in 2016.
Mike’s representative explained Bublé’s comments as an expression of his grief for his sick son, who’s now 5-years-old. Previously, Michael explained how his son’s illness affected his life with his wife, Luisiana Lopilato.
Michael told USA Today that it was the worst possible thing he and his wife could imagine. For a parent’s child to be sick, is one of the most aggreived experiences; it’s truly a tragedy.
On other days, he and his wife struggle to make things work, just because of the stress of dealing with their son’s liver cancer.
Michael and his 31-year-old Argentinian wife, Luisana, released a statement in the past stating that the tremendous outpouring of support they received helped them get through it, especially on those days when they wished they “didn’t wake up.” Michael and Lopilato are the parents of two more children, Elias, 2, and a 2-month-old girl named Vida.
