It's a beautiful day, and I can't stop myself from smiling!— Michael Buble
The most craziest Michael Buble quotes that will inspire your inner self
I am a candid interview and I have a dark and dry sense of humor - a very Canadian sense of humor and I am only learning now stupidly that you can't read tongue. When I say something funny in a newspaper and I meant it to be funny, it doesn't read that way.
I might have to wait. I'll never give up. I guess it's half timing, and the other half's luck. Wherever you are, whenever it's right, you'll come out of nowhere and into my life.
I have a tendency to sabotage relationships;
I have a tendency to sabotage everything. Fear of success, fear of failure, fear of being afraid. Useless, good-for-nothing thoughts.
I just don't want people to think I'm too sweet of a boy;
and little miss angel boy, because I'm going to get caught doing somebody horrible.
I am a candid interview and I have a dark and dry sense of humor - a very Canadian sense of humor.
I brought in producer Johan Carlsson [Ariana Grande, One Direction, Flo Rida] and asked, "Can you make this better?" And he did.
I can't sit and compare my trouble to Brian Wilson but I came from a blue-collar family of fishermen. Music was an escape and a way for me to dream of better things and a better place to be. Let's just say I was an insecure, scared kid.
I believe [Dean Martin] is underestimated as a vocalist only because it seemed like what he was doing looked easy - but it isn't and it stands the test of time.
You can try to trick the people and come out wearing a fedora and a tuxedo but that's not me. I was born in the late '70s, I wear jeans. I don't hang out in casinos. The lifestyle isn't my thing. I don't drink martinis and I don't smoke cigars.
I was probably five years old or four years and I would listen to "White Christmas," and I just thought it was the most beautiful thing ever. The musicianship and his voice and the melody of that song; it's almost like I wish it wasn't a Christmas song because I wish that you were allowed to listen to it all year.
I think I'm a mama's boy who wanted to be a hockey player, who failed, and had to become a singer. I think that I'm a generous, impatient, kind, jerk.
The artist that had the biggest impact on me was Michael Jackson.
He was my Elvis and Beatles. When I was 15, I listened to a lot of Sinatra, but my jean jacket didnt have, I love Frank on it, it had, I love AC/DC, Guns N Roses, Pearl Jam. I thought Eddie Vedder was the second coming.
I get to study and I got to mimic and what I basically did was I stole from every person that I could steal from. I was an imitator. That's what I was. It was years before I could take all of these things that I loved about all of these different artists and put them together and find my voice.
When I say something funny in a newspaper and I meant it to be funny, it doesn't read that way.
It turns out that I'm far too schizophrenic musically for people to categorize me. I think people judge me a lot before they ever really know who I am.
I am singing a genre of music that people are very protective of.
I am being compared to the greatest vocalist of all time.
Every time a new rock singer comes out they don't say, 'Are you the new John Lennon?' Every time a new rapper comes out, it's not, 'Are you the new Dre?' I am never sure why this sort of genre, the categorization is so strong. I have not earned the right to be called the young Sinatra, but give me time.
[Dean Martin ] had this really wonderful rich, authentic, distinct vocal style.
His humour in movies [and] the self-deprecation and the coolness he had could overshadow what a marvellous vocalist in the Great American Songbook he is.
I'm not a jazz musician, because, I mean, firstly, I can't play anything.
I'm not bad on the tamborine. I have a certain way with the triangle. But I'm not a jazz musician ... my band, they always joke, they always say that I'm a disposable, pop, jazz superstar.
A lot of artists talk about getting out of their comfort zones and being the most proud of their newest album. But it is true for me. I rethought a lot of what I do.
Sometimes being an artist means knowing when to let someone see something in you that is there that you can't hear or see.
I struggled more with my identity. Let's be honest - early on in my first records, I didn't have the power to tell David Foster or other producers what to do.
I like my job but it's not who I am.
It's a bit shocking when you show up in Africa or you're in the middle of Spain and there are people that know the words and the young kids singing along.
It's all about love. We're either in love, dreaming about love, recovering from it, wishing for it or reflecting on it. That's what this record [Call Me Irresponsible] is about.
Who I am is a dad and a family guy. When I look in the mirror and talk to myself, that's what I want to reflect.
For me I look at a group like Queen or AC/DC or the Beastie Boys.
There was melody within what they did. There was a certain style with what they did. I think it is coming back.
On social media and [in person] I hear stories of how a song like "Home" helps.
Whether it's a guy overseas coping with missing his family or something deeper and terribly dramatic. Somebody once told me that ["Home"] is the song they listen to when they go to the cemetery to visit their child that passed away. It gives them hope. At the end of the day, that's all what I want to offer people.
When grandpa was ill and could've died, I would have swapped all my record sales so he could get well. He is the reason I am a singer. He was my best friend growing up.
A lot of subjects blend into the same thing: intolerance.
When you're a little kid, you don't know that it's going to get better. Your life experience hasn't told you that. I want to protect those people. I want to send out a message and at least try to get that across.
I'm fascinated by politics. I love watching everyone from Neil deGrasse Tyson to Lawrence Krauss to people like Richard Dawkins and Noam Chomsky on YouTube.
I would rather have people be even cynical about me than to feed the negative vibe.
If [my son] had any pain in feeling that he couldn't express to me, that would hurt.
I see that I have been engaged to Emily [Blunt] without ever asking her.
The big question I had was, do you think I would ask her to marry me through 'Hello' magazine? Would I do something like that? Would she allow that to happen? It is completely ridiculous.
I was reading a Time magazine interview with an author named Brené Brown.
She said, "People that fail seem to ultimately do the same thing they think works over and over again." I had an epiphany and called my manager and started a creed with my producers. I promised we'd do whatever was best for the song and the album - no ego would get in the way.
It's human nature and one day maybe 20 years from now some young kid will come up and people will tell him "my God, you are like a young Michael Bublé. It happened to Harry Connick Jr with the Sinatra thing and now people are saying to me that I am the new Harry Connick Jr. It is a natural thing. I remember hearing interviews with Harry Connick saying "I am not Sinatra, leave me alone, I am different". It's a small thing to deal with.
You want to be commercially successful and critically acclaimed.
But the truth is, there's only a few Bruce Springsteens and Paul McCartneys out there.
I met the [Frank] Sinatra family for a [performance] I did for his hundredth birthday and one of the first things Sinatra's daughters said to me was, "I'm so glad you make your own beautiful arrangements now."
I don't want to be the flavor, the passing thing that the girls scream at.
I think that it's more important for me, honestly, that the guy who gets dragged to the show, you know, looks at his wife and says, thank you, that was great and tells his buddies.
I'm not talking about just Donald Trump's politics - it's what he's brought up.
It's a real conversation. We're just people trying to fall in love as nations and human beings. We need therapy, man. The world does.
There was no way I was ever going to get a fair shake.
How good could I be? I was Canadian. I wasn't from New York. I wasn't from Vegas. I was born in 1975, not 1917. My last name wasn't Sinatra or Darin or Martin. Early on and often, there was always the comparison. "He's good, but he's no '[fill in the] blank.'
I have not earned the right to be called the young Sinatra, but give me time.
I think Elvis Presley is a crooner. Even people like Eddie Vedder, I hear him sing some things and I go "wow". Seal, that kind of nice voice, too.
As I look back, I understand what [the record company] was getting at.
They were trying to market a record and make it as commercially acceptable as possible. It hurt me and my credibility with critics.
This is why I wanted to be different and why I wanted to have power and fame and money: because I wanted to be attractive to the opposite sex. I'd be lying to you if I didn't say that was a big part of it
I think the legacy we leave is our family.
I don't think it's money. I don't think it's - I'm not saying that charity isn't a great thing. I just think that it's my family. Even now I look and I think, God, I'm lucky if I lost it all.
I think I was annoyed going through the '90s just as a guy who loves music.
There wasn't a lot of music for me. Everything was groove driven. We lost the plot with the melody. There's no more melody.
Someone asked me the other day, 'Do you get upset when people say you are the young Frank Sinatra?' It doesn't upset me. It is a huge compliment, but it is false.
Not that I'm some rocker, but what I do in a show is probably far more aggressive than what Dean Martin or Bobby Darin ever did.
