“I had to sing ‘Call Me Irresponsible’ in front of 20 million people, and the first thing I saw when I got on stage was Simon. I sang about four lines and he looked at me and did this [he rolls his eyes] and that was it, I was done. It killed me. My confidence dropped. Maybe Cheryl Cole gets a little quiet and more demure when she loses her confidence. But I become aloof. I get the attitude of, ‘Oh really? Well, f*ck you. You don’t like me? Then go f*ck yourself. I’m just gonna do whatever’.”
That would be Michael Buble on performing for Simon and company back in 2007 on American Idol. Looks to me here that we’ve got ourselves a *cocky, mouthy sonofabitch, huh? I mean, I like Michael Buble’s music, and I think he’s pretty talented (I *actually* just bought his new Christmas album, ’cause I like JAZZY CHRISTMAS STANDARDS), but I also think he’s a little too big for his britches. It’s not like he’s f*cking Elvis or anything, Jaysus. Have some grace, dude.
*Also, yes, I realize that I, too, am a cocky, mouthy sonofabitch, and normally I’d relate to the Boob here, but I’m not the one with billions of fans worldwide that I have to make happy, now, am I? Last, I’ve seen his stage performances – I’d roll my eyes, too.
