Canadian singer Michael Bublé announced his resignation from the music in an interview with the Daily Mail Weekend Magazine, in which he spoke about the devastation he felt after his son Noah died of liver cancer at the age of three.
Bublé told the Daily Mail that the interview was his last, and he will retire from the music after the release of his new album, titled Love, will be released on 16 November.
"I made the perfect record and now I can go top," Bublé told The Daily Mail. "I do not feel like it anymore, the celebrity narcissism.
"This is my last interview, I am retiring."

Bublé explained the emotional impact of Noah's liver cancer diagnosis in November 2016.
"You just want to die, I do not even know how to breathe," Bublé said.
"My wife was the same, and although I was the stronger of the two, I was not strong, my wife was … I'm sorry, I can not make it to the end of the sentence … let's just say we'll find out who we are with these things. "
Noah's cancer is now in remission, but Bublé said that experience has led him to question his purpose in life.
Before Noah's illness, Bublé said he was worried about ticket sales, tours and how the public saw him, but the singer is now "embarrassed by my ego".
"I've decided that I'll never read my name in print, never read a review, and never will, and I've decided I'll never use social media again, and I never have," he said.

"When I went through with Noah, I did not question who I was, I questioned everything else, why are we here?" Said Bublé.
For all that, there must be something bigger. "
Bublé explained the simple techniques he used to get through the experience, such as the inspiration of Roberto Benigni's character in the 1997 film Life is beautiful. In the film, which plays in a concentration camp, Benigni made a joke of everything to facilitate the experience with his son.

Similarly, Bublé would clarify the situation, for example by calling the hospital a "fun hotel".
"Every day I got extra linen and I built a tent for Noah, I made only the best of it, survival," Bublé said.
Bublé has won four Grammys and sold 75 million records with his crooner-like music, inspired by his hero Frank Sinatra.
