What does Canadian crooner Michael Bublé wish for in 2012? “To live more in the moment and to be happy with what I have,” he tells PARADE in the December 4 issue.
Check out some highlights from the PARADE interview here:
Who knew Bublé once appeared on The X-Files?
It was a very small part. I was a sailor. I just needed the money—my singing career was nonexistent at that point.
On his worst pre-fame gig…
I did singing telegrams, but I wasn’t very good because I don’t have a big, loud voice. There were times I didn’t get paid. It was tough on the ego.
What do you always take with you on tour?
I’m trying to learn Spanish, so I have my Spanish for Dummies book. And my wife bought me this little stuffed pig that she thinks looks like me—and it does, which is weird—so I bring that for good luck. He’s always there when I walk into my dressing room, looking at me with these big, sad eyes.
Do you want to have enough kids for a hockey team?
I hope not! Watching my best friend with his newborn, I think one is enough. This poor guy doesn’t know whether he’s coming or going. I went to see him the other day and he had poop all over him—and he was happy! I was like, “Wow, I can wait for that.”
