He’s just scored himself a No 1 album in the UK charts, but superstar Michael Buble couldn’t “give a sh**”.
The Canadian crooner, whose record Love topped the charts this wee k, even told his management and record label NOT to tell him about reviews or chart positions.
The 43-year-old says: “I don’t give a sh** if things sell one or 10 million, I don’t care where I play, if it is at a club or a theatre or a stadium.”
He insists his main priority is the health of his kids – following his five-year-old son Noah’s cancer battle.
He continues: “My kids are good, that’s all I care about. Making music is this bonus, the bonus of the happiness of life. I couldn’t even think about it.
“I don’t read anything, don’t have social media any more and my poor manager cannot tell me what the chart positions are because he knows I will cut the call.

"I don’t need to know that. I don’t have control over that.
“Every second I get to promise myself to be the nicest, kindest person I can be. Everything else has gone out of the window – I can’t control them.”
Love is Buble’s fourth album to top the UK charts.
And he says all the worries and insecurities about his looks, talent and the future that he had before Noah’s battle now seem stupid and irrelevant.
Speaking to DJ Larry Flick on New York’s SiriusXM, Michael adds: “I know what it is to have fear. That place [before] wasn’t a bad place – I was just a dumb-ass.
"I no longer think it is my business what people think of me. I will never let negativity in.”
