Michael Buble's Girlfriend Thought He Was Gay
The Canadian crooner met the actress backstage at his concert in Argentina last November and admits it was love at first sight for him - although the South American stunner needed to be convinced he wasn't pining after her male companion.
He tells Britain's The Sun, "I spotted her in the crowd and thought she was the most beautiful woman I'd ever laid eyes on, but she came backstage with this good-looking dude and I assumed it was her boyfriend. The other problem was that I don't speak Spanish and she had no English. But the guy did, so I just spoke to him. I was a bit nervous because of how beautiful she was. The more I drank, the more I made things worse. I was saying to him, 'You're a good-looking dude' and 'You guys are a good-looking couple.' I later found out Once the star learned Lopilato was single, he rushed to ask her for a date - and the pair has been inseparable ever since."
Buble, who broke up with actress Emily Blunt last year, admits he's happier than ever with Lopilato - except for the fact he isn't very popular in her native Argentina.
He explains, "In South America, she is a massive star and I get the feeling some people - perhaps her fans - don't like me. And the media there have said terrible things about me. It's a shame. I love the place and the people, and she's a great person."
Also, in the interview Michael makes a confession about his past drug use. The 34 year old admits that he was forced to smoke joints and drink alcohol in secret - to keep fans from finding out about his vices: "There I was pretending to be this sweet boy. It was hard trying to be that nice guy the whole time. Truth is, I was a Canadian kid who loved women, partying and ice hockey... I grew up in Vancouver, which has the best weed in the world and good alcohol. You can score (buy drugs) just walking down the street, so I did. I've never done cocaine or heroin or anything stronger. But I don't see anything wrong with relaxing with a joint."
"I'd worked from 16 years old until 26 years old... then I got a couple of big breaks, but the label couldn't give a s**t about me. They thought I'd sell 50,000 records in my lifetime. But they knew they wanted to market me as the clean-cut sweet kid who the mums would love. I'm proud of what I did but it wasn't me, I was just surviving."
