Michael Bublé is planning a career change

The King of Christmas says he’s ready to switch things up and let his fans get to know the ‘real him’.

Michael said that he wants to get into “movies and television” so people can see the man behind the smooth voice and suits.

Speaking on the Diary of a CEO podcast, the crooner said: “Every night I go out and put on this suit and then when I walk out on stage I become the guy I always wanted to be. He’s so cool and says all the right things. I can be goofy but there’s another.

“You’re going to meet him. I’m going to make sure the whole world meets him. For 20 years I have done the same thing, it has been cyclical.

“Michael writes and makes a great record and I go to 40 countries and promote it and then I go on tour for a year and a half.”

He continued: “I feel like I’m at this point in my life and my career where I want to do something different. Music will always be my happy place and my love but I need time to do some other stuff.

“Really it is about being that other guy – not the suit guy – being Mike. Whether that is in movies or television or whatever it is, it has to happen now.”

It comes as Michael opened up about how his son being diagnosed with liver cancer changed the way he approached his life and priorities.

“My son’s cancer diagnosis rocked my world. It pulled the curtain from over my eyes. I don’t want to get deeper into it, but I don’t think I had context,” he said.

“That was a sledgehammer to my reality, I will never be carefree again in my life, and that’s OK.”
