Making insane backstage demands while performing on tour is just one of the great perks of being a superstar celebrity.
Van Halen famously wanted the brown M&M’s removed from their candy bowls, Adele always likes a pack of Marlboro Lights nearby and Katy Perry better have fresh-cut pink flowers as part of her rider. Michael Bublé, however, has shown his true Canadian colors by making perhaps the most innocent request ever when it’s time for him to take the stage.
Catching Up With Old Friends
The Christmas crooner was out in NYC earlier this week when he caught up with videographer and comedian, Adam Glyn. Glyn and Bublé’ actually have a long history of chatting it up on the streets, and the star was elated to see his old photographer pal when stepping out onto the street.
The two covered everything – from favorite karaoke songs to who Bublé’ still wants to perform a duet with (Ed Sheeran anyone?) – but perhaps the most interesting revelation was Bublé’s must-haves when it comes to performing.
Not Pucking Around
When asked about his backstage demands during a performance, Michael Bublé didn’t hesitate to rattle off his favorite – black towel, a bottle of water … and a hockey puck?!
The “Feeling Good” singer, who is a huge hockey fan, further explained that he enjoys collecting hockey pucks from the local team wherever he travels, and he’s amassed quite a collection of pucks around the world from “Places that you wouldn’t even think hockey existed.”
So it’s official … Michael Bublé is not only a die-hard hockey fan, but he’s also one of the nicest guys in entertainment. He followed up the questions by joining his old buddy Adam Glyn for a rendition of Shawn Mendes’ “Señorita.”
