Ahlan! met Michael Buble... and he charmed our socks off!
Press conferences can be pretty awkward at the best of times! Celebrities are often tired and moody, and don’t always want to answer the press’ burning questions. And don’t even get us started on some of the awkward questions they’re often faced with. But luckily for us, this afternoon’s Michael Buble press conference was a complete blast!
When Ahlan! arrived at the press conference held at Jumeirah Beach Hotel, we were disappointed to find out that a scheduled photo opportunity with the Canadian superstar had been cancelled, and that no photos and videos were allowed during the proceedings. When Michael walked into the room, he immediately told us that he hates press conferences, jokingly adding: “No questions about my personal life or my work.” That’s when we knew we were in for a treat!
Throughout the junket he happily answered all of our questions, making jokes throughout. In fact, he even got teary-eyed and emotional when he spoke about his love for his father during one of his many entertaining stories. Once the formalities were over, Michael broke protocol and asked us if we’d like to take selfies with him! How lucky are we?
We managed to sneak in a few photos of the fun, which you can check out below. We’ll bring you more info and stories from the press junket tomorrow, so be sure to come back for more…
