I never really paid attention to this Michael Buble guy but I heard some of his Christmas album on Spotify and it's pretty good. Then I read this article and now I love the guy and will be checking out more of his stuff
Bublé's fans walk out over 'foul language'

Michael Bublé's fans regularly walk out of his gigs because he offends them with his "foul language" and "suggestive" jokes. The Canadian singer was marketed as a clean-cut crooner at the start of his career, but he admits he lost fans and caused his management team plenty of grief over the years with his "crude" stage banter.
He tells Britain's Daily Telegraph, "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," Bublé adds. "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.'"
