We’ve sourced some of the most interesting and thought-provoking Michael Buble Quotes. Each of the following quotes is overflowing with creativity, and knowledge.
I was three or four, and my mother would have a Bing Crosby record playing through the house. It was my introduction to jazz, harmonies, melodies, musicianship, and emotion.

The money never mattered. I’m not kidding you. It hasn’t really brought me any kind of happiness.
I can’t do something just because it’s popular.
I think the legacy we leave is our family. I don’t think it’s money. I don’t think it’s – I’m not saying that charity isn’t a great thing. I just think that it’s my family. Even now I look and I think, God, I’m lucky if I lost it all.
Not that I’m some rocker, but what I do in a show is probably far more aggressive than what Dean Martin or Bobby Darin ever did.
I don’t want to be the flavor, the passing thing that the girls scream at. I think that it’s more important for me, honestly, that the guy who gets dragged to the show, you know, looks at his wife and says, thank you, that was great and tells his buddies.
The fame is the downside. I can’t think of many positive things about it – except that when I go to parties, I don’t have to stand there like a lemon.
I think I’m a mama’s boy who wanted to be a hockey player, who failed, and had to become a singer. I think that I’m a generous, impatient, kind, jerk.
I want to be around for a long time. I want this to be a career. I want to sing like Tony Bennett. I want to be an old man and I want to go through all the ups and downs and I wanna still love what I do.
I get to study and I got to mimic and what I basically did was I stole from every person that I could steal from. I was an imitator. That’s what I was. It was years before I could take all of these things that I loved about all of these different artists and put them together and find my voice.
I actually own works of art I’ve always wanted to own – I collect photographs by the late William Claxton. I met him in L.A.; later, he agreed to shoot the cover for my album ‘Call Me Irresponsible’ for free. I was so fat at the time, and he made me look as good as I possibly could.
There will never be another Frank Sinatra. I never wanted to be another Frank Sinatra. I only wanted to be another Michael Buble.
When grandpa was ill and could’ve died, I would have swapped all my record sales so he could get well. He is the reason I am a singer. He was my best friend growing up.
People have certain ideas of what they think you should be, and I have fought that categorisation my whole life.
I always felt it was weird, that retro thing where guys showed up in zoot suits and tried to talk as if they were from some other time.
Other artists, they write 13 songs, and hopefully one or two of them are successful singles. And the other 11, for the most part, are filler.
Look at Neil Diamond. Was he the cool guy? No, he was the housewives’ guy. He didn’t try to be what he wasn’t. He just did what he did – made great music, was a good entertainer, nice-enough guy.
I have the most eclectic audience – I’ve got gay, I’ve got straight, black, white, rich, poor, young, old, in 45 countries. And they don’t all come because I’m the Sinatra kid, though that’s a big part of it. My biggest successes have come from pop songs that I write myself.
The artist that had the biggest impact on me was Michael Jackson. He was my Elvis and Beatles. When I was 15, I listened to a lot of Sinatra, but my jean jacket didn’t have, ‘I love Frank’ on it, it had, ‘I love AC/DC’, ‘Guns N Roses’, ‘Pearl Jam’. I thought Eddie Vedder was the second coming.
This is why I wanted to be different and why I wanted to have power and fame and money: because I wanted to be attractive to the opposite sex. I’d be lying to you if I didn’t say that was a big part of it.

There are a lot of people – and time does this – who are going to be severely embarrassed for their bias and intolerance. And they’re going to have to live with that; that’s going to be their legacy. I refuse to have that as part of my legacy.
Every time a new rock singer comes out they don’t say, ‘Are you the new John Lennon?’ Every time a new rapper comes out, it’s not, ‘Are you the new Dre?’ I am never sure why this sort of genre, the categorization is so strong. I have not earned the right to be called the young Sinatra, but give me time.
I just don’t want people to think I’m too sweet of a boy; and little miss angel boy, because I’m going to get caught doing somebody horrible.
My entire life has been inspired by how my family has made me feel.
