Canadian singer Michael Bublé recalled his emotional struggle after his son Noah was diagnosed with liver cancer and said he retired from music in an interview with the Daily Mail Weekend Magazine, but his direction says who is retiring "completely false".
Bublé told the Daily Mail that the interview was the last one, and he will withdraw from the music after the release of his new album, titled Love, will be released on November 16th.
"I made the perfect record and now I can go to the top," Bublé told the Daily Mail. "I no longer have a stomach, the narcissism of celebrities.
"This is my last interview, I'm retiring."

The management of Bublé has refused to retire. Michelle R. Larson, a digital media manager of Bruce Allen Talent, the company that manages Bublé, wrote on her Facebook fan page, "The rumors and news that Michael is about to leave are completely false." We ask everyone not to share none of these scandal stories and eliminate any posts already shared on Buble Insider and personal pages.Thanks members! "
In the interview, Bublé explained the emotional effect of Noah's liver cancer diagnosis when he was three years old, in November 2016.
"You just want to die, I do not even know how to breathe," said Bublé.
"My wife was the same, and even though I was the strongest of the two of us, I was not strong … My wife was … I'm sorry, I can not get to the end of the sentence … let's just say we find out who we are with these things ".
Noah's cancer is now in remission, but Bublé said that the experience made him doubt his purpose in life.
Before Noah's illness, Bublé said he would worry about ticket sales, touring and how the audience saw him, but now the singer has become "embarrassed by my ego".
"I decided never to read my name again in print, to never read a review and I never did, I decided that I will never use social media again and I never did" he said.

"By going through this with Noah, I did not ask questions about who I was, I just questioned everything else, why are we here?" Bublé said.
"It's all there is to be because if that's all there is, there must be something bigger".
Bublé explained the simple techniques with which he lived the experience, drawing inspiration from the character of Roberto Benigni in the 1997 film Life is Beautiful. In the film, set in a concentration camp, Benigni made a joke about everything to lighten up the experience while he was with his son.
Likewise, Bublé would have made the situation light, for example by calling the hospital "a fun hotel".
"Every day I received extra sheets and built a tent for Noah, I just did my best, Survival," said Bublé.
Bublé has won four Grammys and has sold 75 million records with his crooner-style music, inspired by his hero, Frank Sinatra.
