Michael Buble Apologizes for This Controversial Butt Picture

Anybody who knows me would never misinterpret the message of the photo my wife took in Miami that seems to have caused unexpected rage by some people. I do not court controversy. But I realize that a photo that was meant to be complimentary and lighthearted has turned into a questionable issue. For the record, It hurts me deeply that anyone would think that I would disrespect women or be insulting to any human being.. I was not brought up that way and it is not in my character. I regret that there are people out there who found the photo offensive. That was not and is not my intention. Women are to be celebrated, loved, respected, honored and revered. I’ve spent my life believing that and will continue to do so.

    He did not need to apologize. She got exactly what she wanted, ATTENTION. She looks ridiculous and at the end of the day, he’s just a man like so many out there. A woman who leaves the house looking like that knows exactly what she’s getting herself into and his only crime is that he’s a celebrity with a butt-ton of hyper sensitive dorks following him.

    Oh please, I’ve seen worse at Wal-Mart. Give the guy a break she know her damn ass cheeks are hanging out and the possibility someone with a camera would probably snap a pic or just make a comment.

  • shoes4life

    What’s gross is that she may have been sitting on exercise equipment and sweating, got up and didn’t wipe it clean afterwards.

    media is AWFUL!!!!!!!!!! now, good people like Michael Buble won’t be natural, thanks media!

  • RunyonBoy

    Oh god, this is considered controversial now? Freakin internet and social media have provided an outlet to every little whino out there. Besides, I am sorry, but if you go out in public looking like that, you make yourself open to ridicule like this. Her butt is literally hanging out. Give him a break, big freakin deal…

  • Shenanigans

    disgusting, you are. he gets a pass because he’s a man? shame on HIM FOR LOOKING. and shame on you and whoever raised a disgusting idiot like you.

  • Shenanigans

    im sure women like you also blame other women when theyre raped right? she mustve been dressed provocatively, she probably ‘asked’ for it. yup…heard it all before. you’re in the wrong century.

  • Tania Alvarez-Hildebrand

    Shame on me? No. This disgusting idiot’s mother raised her better than to go in public dressed like like that. There’s a place and a dress code for everything. And shame on him? No. I’m sure for every man she got to take a double take that day, a 100 women did the same thing. It’s human nature.

  • Excellent

    +1.. and Jared, once again: why is wearing hot pants is “showing a little too much skin”..? it’s not little too much. it’s exactly how she wanted. not “too much”.

  • Tania Alvarez-Hildebrand

    No m’am , that thought did not even crossed my mind at the time of my response, but thank you for bringing it up and assuming, like so many others. I’ve been cat called wearing overalls and long sleeved shirt so dress code does very little to deter someone from committing the crime if they woke up in the mood to do it that day. I however am not a fan or like to go out dressed like that. There is a time and place for everything. However this is a free country and you’re entitled to your opinion every bit as I’m entitled to mine so rock on.

  • loff

    SMUG B**STRD, at least he’s shown his true nature.

  • tia maria

    there is nothing controversial about the pic, the first thing that popped in my head when reading what he posted along with the pic was the song my humps by Black eyed Peas

  • Jes

    He has no right to make fun of other people’s body, that’s body shaming. If she feels right dressing like that then why does people that to criticize her? she feels confidential with her body so uses the clothes she likes. Its Miami, the weather must be hot, what does she have to dress?????

  • Jes

    And if there’s a code to dress, just tell me why are clothes like that sold. Exactly, people is free to wear whatever they want, and other people have no right to make fun of them or body shame

    Was he body shaming though? He said hastag nice but or something. It was a compliment.

  • Mike1288

    Um why is this controversial? I’ve seen men and woman take pics of other people. Didn’t he say she had a nice butt anyways? What I don’t get is this over reaction for woman. Woman like this know what they’re doing. I mean I know what I’m doing when I don’t wear a shirt. I have abs and I like the attention I get for them. Objectify me IDC. A lot of woman like showing their goods and this woman isn’t any different. There’s plenty of people who wear long pants to the gym and she could have done that.

  • Mike1288

    That is not even a logical comparison. Those are two separate issues and yours is very extreme. My friend has a Kim k booty and she loves to show it off. She says its her biggest asset. Not every woman is concerned with being objectified, a lot of woman like the compliments that come from it. Its like me I have abs and I like to show them, I like attention.

  • Mike1288

    Lol yeah okay cause looking isn’t a natural thing to do. Science proves MEN and WOMAN are always looking at specific attributes for mating (a natural instinct). To say someone can not or should not look is ridiculous.

  • suzybel

    If she wants to be respected she should cover her cheeks up. Nobody with any kind of taste walks around in public with their ass hanging out. If people are upset, they should be upset with her not Buble. I mean. c’mon, if it’s staring you right in the face, you’re going to look at it right?

    Clothes are not sold like that, people buy clothes for that reason. I am sure if she got a size bigger it wouldve covered her better. He did not body shame her, if you want to use shame…he shamed her for lacking class, that’s different.

  • Paula Roehl-Johnson

    People who rape, don’t look for people because of their looks or how they are dressed. I watched a show where rapist say they only do it when there is opportunity. Looks doesn’t matter, only opportunity. Little boys in school, only depend on looks. She is dressed how she wants too be dressed. I didn’t see anything bad on what Michael wrote. Only people looking for drama would interpret it as bad. She isn’t the worst dressed, but she is show casing. I seen girls in bathing suits that show a heck of a lot more than this.

  • Shenanigans

    of course its all about control and opportunity for a rapist. i agree with your statement. my comments were to the people who are saying ‘she deserves it’ because of the way shes dressed. my comments refer to the mentality of the commentators who in their quest to justify bubles comments (nothing wrong with them, to begin with) are blaming sn innocent party because of the way shes dressed.

    Why should he apologize?! This wasn’t some private thing. This woman chose to “share” first. He’s stupid for apologizing.

    Jeez people, he didn’t shame her, it was complimentary.
    Or at least an attempt.

    It was, however, lacking in class and in very poor taste. There’s a lot of that going around, so you can hardly single him out. Leaving your butt hanging out of your shorts is also less than classy.

    Let’s call it a wash and everyone get on with your lives.
