Michael Bublé says he’s thinking about leaving the music behind

Michael Bublé could see himself leaving music behind, but it’s a “delicate” situation.

The 46-year-old singer has been candid about his struggles to maintain his career while being a good father and husband. During a chat on “That Gaby Roslin Podcast” posted Sept. 4, Bublé said he no longer has the same passion he once had for music like he used to.

“I think I don’t like him that much. I think I’m about to think maybe I can just be a dad,” the “It’s a Beautiful Day” singer said.

Bublé shares four children with Argentine actor Luisana Lopilato; sons Noah, 8, and Elias, 6, and daughters Vida, 4, and Cielo, born in mid-August.

“I have this image in my head of me in a field with my kids and Ed Sheeran’s kids and we huddle together and picnic and get drunk,” he said with a laugh, adding, ” I’m just messing with you.”

Although the Sheeran part of his dream life may be a joke, he explained that these days, before he leaves for a long tour, he has to pull himself together.

“I have to put myself in a mental state, where if I don’t feel it, I have to remember and say, ‘Hey, this is a great opportunity, Mike, to go and start again, to enjoy it again. How lucky are you,” he said. “And I have to remind myself again and again. Like we all do… I don’t care what you do for a living, it’s easy to get into this place. But life is beautiful.

However, Bublé went on to share how “funny” it is that someone outside thinks he has it all.

“I’ve got an amazing career and, man, I’ve done so well… but you know how miserable I am about all of this?” he said. “Seriously. It’ll just show you that if you think money or success or some kind of fame will settle things in your life and you’ll find clarity and true happiness, that’s bullshit. You don’t find it never, you always want more and I don’t care what station you get to or how far you go.

The singer said his ambition made him want more and he had to remember to “try to be in the moment and appreciate the life I had”.

When asked if he could seriously quit the industry and be a full-time dad, he said he was grappling with the idea.

“I don’t know a friend who doesn’t have the same thought. I mean, we never do. Nobody ever seems to really do it, very few of us are brave enough to say, ‘No, I just want to do this’, but I think it’s a fantasy,” he said, adding that “He had seen his wife put her career on hold to become a mum. “We had our first (child) and I would say about six or seven months later I would start to see her say, ‘Who am I?'”

“And it’s the same when I jokingly tell you this at first and say, ‘Hey, you know, maybe I’ll just be a dad,'” he said. “I think it’s a trick.”
