It turns out the singer is quite the karaoke fan and didn’t hesitate in jumping up and literally gyrating to his rendition of the infamous Spice Girl hit, Wannabe – what a man! As he shared, “I like stuff that gets the whole place pumping like YMCA.”
The smoothest man in music, Michael Bublé joined GLAMOUR’s Joshington Hosts to teach him ‘How to Be More Bublé’ to celebrate the launch of his latest namesake fragrance. The singer is adding Michael Bublé Pour Homme and Michael Bublé By Invitation Rose Gold and Peony Noir to his existing perfume portfolio – Britney better watch her perfume cabinet.
We have always imagined that Michael Bublé ‘smells well nice,’ so what is his fragrance vibe? “No one in my life has ever asked me that! This is going to sound like I am talking about food, but I like something super fresh.” Delicious.
There is nothing Michael Bublé couldn’t sell to someone but when pushed on what his department store pitch would be for the fragrance, he went for an interesting response: “I would use a French accent – it’s very sexy. Can you imagine how uncomfortable that would be? I don’t want to have to try and sell something. I am about to release an album and I don’t want to go out and have to sell it!” You won’t find Michael Bublé on your Department store beauty counter any time soon, then. Alas.
Looking dashing in a navy suit, Michael appeared as the ultimate gentleman, but what are his tips for being the ultimate gent? “I wish I was more like that guy. I can pretend but I think there are certain things that will never go out of style: kindness, compassion, empathy, humour and self-deprecation. Looks, muscles, height, hair are all just unimportant things that in time will go. It’s how you make people feel.” It’s safe to say he’s giving us ALL the feels, as he continued, “be yourself. It took me a long time to love myself, to love myself enough to be loved.”
Having sold 30 million records worldwide and collected four Grammy Awards along the way, it’s hard to imagine that Michael has had moments of self-doubt - but the Canadian has had many moments of conflict, as he shares. “You are an asshole, you need to learn some respect for yourself. There was too much of my life where I was like, ‘god man,’ and didn’t believe in myself. It sounds like a cliché but if you don’t love yourself, no one else is going to.” Word.
As we slide ever closer to Christmas, a time for baubles and Bublé, I wonder what it’s like to be the king of Christmas? “I love Christmas. It’s hard for anyone to probably understand watching this just how much it means to mean and how grateful I am that at a time that means so much to you, with your family, that somehow you have got Micky Bubbles playing in your casa – that’s massive to me!”
The best men's fragrances for that special guy in your life
