Michael Buble: My wife thought I was gay when we first met
Michael Bublé has won the hearts of men and women across the world – but it turns out his wife wasn’t too sure about which he preferred.
The legendary singer opened up about meeting his wife, Argentine actress Luisana Lopilato, back in 2008 in an interview with PrideSource.
He recalled: “She walked in this room with a man, and the man was so good lookin’ that he made Brad Pitt look dumpy, so I assumed they were together. I naturally assumed that this was her boyfriend or her husband, so I refused to hit on her.
“It didn’t help that she didn’t speak English either at the time. Not a word. But the more I drank that night, the more brazen I got about trying to find out what the situation was between them.
“Finally, after two hours – and I don’t know how many shots and glasses of whiskey – I finally said ‘You guys are such a beautiful couple’, and he said, ‘We’re not together’.
“He said, ‘She came because she likes you.’ And at the same time, she was on the phone texting her mom saying, ‘Oh my god, Michael Bublé is all over my friend. He’s so gay’.
Elsewhere in the interview, Bublé was asked how he would react if one of his children came out,
He said: “With nothing but love – and I’m not saying that to you because it’s you or the magazine. It’s because I love them, man. I love them so much that I just want them to be happy.
“My goal in life is to make them beautiful, happy human beings, and if that’s who they are – because I’m killed, just devastated, when I hear people saying they ‘choose’.
“Choose? What are you f**king talking about? You don’t choose. It isn’t a choice. It is genetic. And I understand some people have an issue with the whole marriage thing and the sanctity of this word ‘marriage’.
“I mean, I don’t get it, but I can choose to listen to their point and hear it. I don’t agree with it. I always joke, everyone jokes: Why can’t gay people be just as miserable as straight people who are married?
“But listen to me, we are in a world – a dangerous world – right now, and if you’re not standing up against intolerance, then you’re for it. God, I sounded like George W. f**king Bush right there, holy s**t. ‘If you’re not with us, you’re against us!’.
