Michael Bublé Works Harder for What He’s Got!
Michael works harder for what he’s got and realizes how much he could lose, especially while sitting at the top of his game. ''I’m more afraid of failure now than I have ever been,” Bublé told British magazine GQ. “It's only recently I've understood the maths of what make artists go up and down. They make too much money. They have too many people blowing smoke up their ass. You have to have that fear and desperation. Always want to do something better.”
Buble’ is now getting set for the festive season promoting his new Christmas album, which is no doubt going to be another hit. The 36-year old performer feels very fortunate to have many devoted fans and consistent record sales.Michael’s “Christmas” is his fifth studio album released on Oct 25, 2011. It’s his third turn with holiday music. In 2003 he released the EP “Let it Snow” followed by “A Holiday Gift To You” released last year. – By Shannon Edwards

Michael Buble Has Regrets About Ex Emily Blunt
The Canadian crooner says his relationship with actress Emily Blunt, for instance, was in the public eye a little too much. Buble says he was “naive” on speaking of the relationship so openly to the press.
The pair split in 2008 after a three-year relationship and Buble seems to have regrets. In fact he thinks they would still be together now if they had kept more private.
He told the Providence Journal, “We were naive, I think, we were both excited about the relationship, and we talked openly about it, and I think we both learned that when you give away even little things, they’re not yours anymore. So I’ve learned just to keep my private life private.”
Buble says there have been many lessons learned including heavy partying during tour times. “I can’t party on tour any more,” he said. “I think it’s part of getting older — you know your limits.” The singer adds, “I stay sober as I want to put on the best show. It’s bigger now, so I need to be sharp.”
He has found love again, Buble is engaged to actress Luisana Lopilato. – by Beaudin
