During an interview with the Daily Telegraph, Michael Bublé admitted to regularly receiving letters from fans complaining about his use of foul language. “I think something is funny and I go over the edge, I know. Almost every night when I’m on stage, my manager will say to me, ‘Well, kid, 30 people wanted their money back.’ Our office gets people sending T-shirts back; they send their CDs back. I get letters saying, ‘I really liked you but you were crude, you were rude, you used foul language, you were suggestive.’
“At first it was a real worry for my agents. They kept saying, ‘Mike, you’re losing the audience.’ Especially when I wasn’t playing to that many people. I remember my American agent saying, ‘Tonight, it was huge. Seventy people wanted their money back.’ And I said, ‘Give them their money back. I don’t want them at my show. I don’t want some stuck-up prude so up their own a** they can’t laugh at themselves,’ I said. ‘Give me my kind of people, and we’ll be fine.’ ”
Despite the angry fans walking out, the 30 year old crooner has a significant amount coming back. Bublé has sold more than 35 million albums worldwide since he’s debut in 2003. Much of his success is due to0 his sound that appeals to a wide and “eclectic” crowd. “I’ve got gay, I’ve got straight, black, white, rich, poor, young, old, in 45 countries,” the singer proudly stated.
And hey, you’ve got to hand it to the kid. Despite his cheeky innuendos and foul mouth banter at shows, Bublé’s got an undeniable charm and mischievous wit that occasionally get him a slap on the hand.
