Michael Buble swears he’s cool as fans walk out

by | 15th, December 2011

MICHAEL Buble, the singer with the voice akin to having a nun push a half-melted finger of fudge in your ear, is the subject of the BBC headline:

Buble fans walk out over language

Michael Buble is Canadian, and on reading that headline we supposed the offensive language to be English.

It turns out that the language is not the lingua franca, rather swearing. Buble says that such is his level of cussin’ that many fans have walked out. As he tells the Telegraph:

“Almost every night when I’m on stage my agent will say to me: ‘Well kid, 30 people wanted their money back.'”

(Buble’s agent is Nicely-Nicely Johnson).

He adds:

“They kept saying: ‘Mike, you’re losing the audience’. Especially when I wasn’t playing to that many people. I remember my American agent saying: ‘Tonight it was huge, 70 people wanted their money back’.

“And I said: ‘Give them their money back. I don’t want them at my show. I don’t want some stuck-up prudes [who] can’t laugh at themselves’. Give me my kind of people and we’ll be fine.”

Who are Buble’s kind of people?

“I get letters saying: ‘I really liked you, but you were crude, you were rude, you used foul language, you were suggestive’.”
