Michael Buble left a press conference stunned when he confessed he was under the influence of drugs on Friday.
The popular singer made an appearance at a chaotic NHL All-Star press conference on Thursday.
Buble, who was acting as a celebrity captain for the All-Star Game, appeared out of sorts before declaring to the entire room that he was under the influence of psychedelic drugs.
“My buddy told me, this is just a microdose of mushrooms and he was lying,” said the star abruptly and without being prompted.
“So, I’ll be honest, I thought I was in Blades of Glory for most of the time that I was out there, until it sort of settled down and then I realised, ‘Holy s***, I am in the NHL All-Star Game.”
He went on to joke that his confession may have cost him “a lot of income” with his sponsors.
“The mushroom talk cost me all my contracts, cost me a lot of income,” added the star.
Elsewhere during the press conference, Buble confessed that he has grown tired of his fans not getting to see the “goofy” side of him. He revealed his hopes to try out new things in his career, and hoped his followers would be receptive.
He said: “Every night I go out and put on this suit and then when I walk out on stage I become the guy I always wanted to be. He’s so cool, Teflon and says all the right things. I can be goofy but there’s another. ‘You’re going to meet him. I’m going to make sure the whole world meets him. For 20 years I have done the same thing, it has been cyclical.”
Referring to himself in third person, he continued: “Michael writes and makes a great record and I go to 40 countries and promote it and then I go on tour for a year and a half.
“I’m at this point in my life and my career where I want to do something different. Music will always be my happy place and my love but I need time to do some other stuff. Really it is about being that other guy – not the suit guy – being Mike. Whether that is in movies or television or whatever it is, it has to happen now.”
