Michael Bublé: I only became a singer for sex

Los Angeles - Michael Bublé only became a singer for sex. 

The 41-year-old singer is now happily married to Luisana Lopilato, the mother of his two children - Noah, three, and Elias, eight months, with his wife - but admits that he first entered the music industry in order to attract women.

Speaking on Ireland's The Late Late Show, he said: "I believe that many of us human beings who happen to be male want to be in any professional [career] so that we can be more attractive to the same or opposite sex because we enjoy sex as human beings. 

"I was 13 years old and I thought to myself 'Wow, that would be an aphrodisiac, to get famous and have a girl kiss me finally'."

Michael also revealed that he has been asked not to speak about his wife in interviews for fear of alienating his fans but he thinks his followers can cope with hearing about his love for his spouse.

He explained: "I think at some point you grow up and hopefully you mature and hopefully my travels around the world have given me a better view on things. 

"People in my life say to me, 'Please don't speak about your wife.' They say, 'Your kids, that's cool.'

"There are people that believe there's a certain fantasy or something that I think is bollocks. I don't think people buy things, I think people buy people.

"I just don't think there are that many axe murderers out there that are sitting in my fanbase going 'Maybe I can fix him.'"
