If my mom has a CD in heavy rotation in her car, michael bubleit's a sure sign that I should avoid whatever musician it is at all costs. I mean, c'mon, someone as young and hip as I am should not be sharing his life's soundtrack with his parents, for Christ's sake. I should be listening to music that makes my mother's ears bleed with disgust.

But, goddamn, I love Michael Bublé.

My mom's been a fan for years, and I've tried to resist his big-band charms and effortlessly smooth voice while in her car. For the most part I've been successful, but Bublé's new album, Crazy Love, is crazy addicting. Additionally, I can no longer deny how absolutely hot he is and how much I want him to teleport to my bedroom every night and croon bedtime songs to me.

And how can I not adore a man who says the following gay things in a interview?: Do you get big pairs of granny pants thrown at you?

Michael Bublé: I get loads of weird shit happening but most of the places I'm going now it's young people. It's 60% young women, 25% gay men and the rest is couples. Do those gay men pinch your arse?

Michael Bublé: Yeah, I've had that and I think it's fucking great! Gay fans are the hardest to get, the most loyal and they're the tastemakers. Have you ever done any gay stuff?

Michael Bublé: Sexually? Unfortunately, I've never had that much to drink yet. Listen, the uncle I was named after is gay and him and his partner have been together for forty years, so I just grew up with that being a cool thing.

Oh, Michael Bublé, come to my house! I have a refrigerator full of King Cobras! (Malt liquor to get effed up by!)

Yes, I know you have a hot Argentine girlfriend, but, if even she thought you were gay at one time, then you can be turned! According to Starpulse:

Michael Bublé nearly missed making a love connection with Argentine girlfriend Luisana Lopilato--because the singer spent so long chatting to her male pal, she assumed he was gay....

[Bublé] tells Britain's The Sun, "I spotted her in the crowd and thought she was the most beautiful woman I'd ever laid eyes on, but she came backstage with this good-looking dude and I assumed it was her boyfriend. The other problem was that I don't speak Spanish and she had no English. But the guy did, so I just spoke to him. I was a bit nervous because of how beautiful she was. The more I drank, the more I made things worse. I was saying to him, 'You're a good-looking dude' and 'You guys are a good-looking couple.'" Once the star learned Lopilato was single, he rushed to ask her for a date--and the pair has been inseparable ever since."

Okay, fine, Michael Bublé, maybe alcohol won't work, but can I entice you with drugs? I mean, according to that same interview:

The 34-year-old admits that he was forced to smoke joints and drink alcohol in secret--to keep fans from finding out about his vices: "There I was pretending to be this sweet boy. It was hard trying to be that nice guy the whole time. Truth is, I was a Canadian kid who loved women, partying and ice hockey.... I grew up in Vancouver, which has the best weed in the world and good alcohol. You can score [buy drugs] just walking down the street, so I did. I've never done cocaine or heroin or anything stronger. But I don't see anything wrong with relaxing with a joint."

Anyway, Michael Bublé's rise to fame reads like a fairy tale. According to good ol' Wikipedia:

At the age of 18, Bublé entered a local talent contest and won. But after winning, he was disqualified by organizer Bev Delich because he was underage. After that, Delich entered Bublé in the Canadian Youth Talent Search, which he won. Following that win, Bublé asked Delich to be his manager. Delich signed on and represented Bublé for the next seven not-so-fruitful years. According to Delich, Bublé would do every gig imaginable; including talent shows, conventions, cruise ships, malls, hotel lounges, bars, clubs, corporate gigs, theatres, music revues, and even the occasional singing Santa Claus gig....

But by 25 years of age Bublé had moved from British Columbia to Toronto, Ontario and was ready to give up the dream of professional musicianship to move back to Vancouver, British Columbia to pursue a career in journalism when his lucky break came in 2000.

Read the rest on Wikipedia.

Have you seen the music video for the first single off of Crazy Love? It's time, folks. The incredibly catchy "Haven't Met You Yet" (a Bublé original) is a delirious grocery store fantasia, and the hot model in the video is the aforementioned girlfriend. Curses! Watch:

I have been an MB fan from the very first album. Great voice, sexy in that frat-boy-football-player kind of way. His live concerts are complete mayhem from the moment he comes on the stage.

As square as it makes me, I've loved Michael Buble for years --- I mean, somebody with another silver throat has to give Josh Groban a little competition, right? --- I've seen a few of his concerts on PBS, and he's on my list of performers I want to see live someday (as apparently Sean has --- and judging from his TV appearances, I can believe that Buble gives a great concert in person!)

I'm confused about the Argentine girlfriend ... Buble was once engaged to the daughter of composer/arranger David Foster ... did that fall through?

If you mean Amy Foster, referring to the concert where he made a comment about her being his future wife, he was joking. They're good friends, but they've never been engaged (as Amy was married for a very long time).

Luv him!
That song: nice combination of Pizzicato 5 and the Beatles, but notice the autotune! What's up with that?! If there is anyone who has a voice that is not improved by autotune it is Michael Buble. Big mistake.Probably an attempt to make him more pop and youthful.

The interesting thing about the video is the way it doesn't shut the door on gay. He touches her hair in a sweet-not-smoldering way. At the end, when he turns to watch her as she passes him, he's looking at her head, not her ass. That is really a very telling detail. Also, the hot butcher with the black curly hair. There is an ambiguous element to his presence in the video. Is he the one Michael is singing to?

I tried to get tickets for his show in L.A., and it's already sold out!!!!! Aaaaarrrrrggggghhhhh!

I saw him once in concert...I could not resist his charm and great music... Who knows about his sexuality?

He is, unfortunately for us, very very straight. He knows he has a big gay following and is appreciative of that fact, but he doesnt play for our team.

Darn it.

Sean, that has been my impression...while I'm often right...I have been wrong! lol By the way, what is "very very straight?" Is that the opposite of "very very gay?" Just teasing...I know what you mean, but don't we all use funny language sometimes to make a point?

His girlfriend is so freaking gorgeous, she makes me wish I were a lesbian. That's how very very straight he must be. LOL
