Michael to bow out as ill son re­cov­ers

The Sunday Post (Dundee) - - NEWS -

Michael Bu­ble has an­nounced plans to “re­tire” from the mu­sic in­dus­try af­ter ad­mit­ting he no longer has the de­sire for fame fol­low­ing his son’s bat­tle with can­cer.

The Cana­dian singer, who has won four Gram­mys and sold 75 mil­lion records, put his ca­reer on hold af­ter find­ing out the five-year-old was di­ag­nosed with liver can­cer two years ago.

Noah, one of three chil­dren with wife of seven years, Ar­gen­tinian model and ac­tress Luisana Lopi­lato, is now in re­mis­sion.

Dur­ing an emo­tional “last in­ter­view”, Michael opened up about the dev­as­tat­ing im­pact Noah’s ill­ness had on the cou­ple.

“My whole be­ing’s changed. My per­cep­tion of life. I don’t know if I can even get through this con­ver­sa­tion with­out cry­ing. And I’ve never lost con­trol of my emo­tions in pub­lic,” he said.

The 43-year-old ex­plained how the di­ag­no­sis made him re­alise he had be­come fix­ated on his own suc­cess and can no longer stom­ach “the celebrity nar­cis­sism”.

How­ever, Bu­ble be­gan mak­ing mu­sic again about a year ago and his new al­bum Love is set to be re­leased next month.

The heart­throb hinted that his lat­est record may be his last.

“I’m re­tir­ing from the busi­ness,” he said.
