Michael Bublé ‘doesn’t care’ about his career after son’s cancer diagnosis

Michael Bublé has revealed he doesn’t care about his career after his son’s cancer diagnosis.

In November 2016, Buble and his wife, Luisana Lopilato, announced their eldest son, Noah, was undergoing treatment for cancer in the US.

In joint statements posted on social media, the parents revealed that they were "devastated" and putting their careers on hold to focus their attention on their son’s health. Noah received the all-clear in early 2018.

In an interview with USA Today, Bublé opened about how the experience changed his perspective on life and his career.

"I don't even think about my career," he told the news outlet, adding that spending time with his family is his top priority.

The singer went onto reveal that he struggles to understand how he worried so much about his career prior to his son’s cancer diagnosis.

“It's going to sound sloppy, but I remember sitting there and thinking, 'Why the f**k am I worried about all this shit?' That's what I was worried about? What people thought of me, or the numbers of something? That's crap. That doesn't matter,” he said.

Bublé, who is also father to son Elias and daughter Vida, added that Noah's illness made him cherish the “little things” in life.

"It allows you to enjoy the little things in life and not be so f**king busy worrying how many likes you got, or how much money you made, stuff that makes you go, 'Oh god, what was I thinking about?'"

The Canadian singer noted that his family’s love has given him “armour” to live.

“Through my whole life and my career no matter how fancy or big the success was...no matter how nice the suits got or the watch got, underneath it all was the armour that my family had placed on me.”

In 2016, the singer opened up about his devotion to his wife and children.

"I love them more than I'll ever love anything, or anyone in the whole universe," he told Entertainment Tonight.

"I think it gave me perspective on life that I think I very badly needed. It's hard to be able to quantify that level of love."

Michael Bublé will be touring the UK later this year. Find out more details about his tour here.
