Michael Bublé retiring, won't release more Christmas albums

Michael Bublé will retire from music, admitting he no longer wants fame following his son's battle with cancer.

Bublé, a four-time Grammy winner and legendary Christmas crooner, said his life was changed when his then-three-year-old son was diagnosed with liver cancer.

"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," Bublé told the Daily Mail in his "last interview".

After the diagnosis, Bublé took time off from his career to spend time with his family as Noah went undergo treatment in the United States.

Now, two years later, with Noah in remission, Bublé said he doesn't want anything to do with "the celebrity narcissism" of the music industry.

"I was embarrassed by my ego… I decided I'd never read my name again in print, never read a review, and I never have. I decided I'd never use social media again, and I never have".

The Canadian singer has, however, been working on a charity edition of James Corden's 'Carpool Karaoke' and will release a new album next month.

But that album is likely to be his last.

"I'm retiring from the business," he said. "I've made the perfect record and now I can leave at the very top."
