Although old-fashioned crooner Michael Bublé may sing like a gentleman, he had a bit of rough criticism for reality show horror Kim Kardashian- who has inserted herself hard into the news cycle after a marriage that was shorter than some road trips.
The 36-year-old canuck was performing at an iHeartRadio Live concert in the New York City district of Tribeca at the PC Richard & Son Theater when he said to the crowd:
“Ladies and gentleman, I have a very special guest… Please welcome Kim Kardashian [to the stage]!”
The audience reacted with surprise, clearly expecting the reality show celebutante to materialize at Bublé’s show. But the singer was just messing around with them, and he said:
“Nah, just f***ing with you! That bitch isn’t coming on my stage.”
After he’d punked the audience, Bublé launched into a cover of the Nina Simone classic “Feeling Good,” and extended the joke by dedicating the tune to Kardashian’s scorned husband, Kris Humphries. Bublé added:
“She hurt him, she hurt him! I wish she had hurt me!”
The New York Post gave an account of the show, during which Bublé wowed fans by looking fly and dusting off a few Christmas tunes:
Bublé took the stage with his band in a bit of a business-casual look, wearing jeans, a black blazer and a gray tie. And despite it not even being Thanksgiving yet, ’ol Bubsy made like Bing Crosby and got the holidays going by singing songs from his new album, “Christmas.” The release is his first holiday-themed album since 2003’s “Let It Snow.”
Do you think Bublé’s remarks were funny, or rude?
