Michael Buble has spoken out about rumours he's retiring from music, branding the reports 'fake news'.

He was quoted as saying: "I don't have the stomach for it any more. The celebrity narcissism. This is my last interview" in the Daily Mail's Weekend Magazine.

Michael also told Sky News: "I'm retiring. I've made the perfect record and now I can leave at the very top,"

However, he has now said the interview was 'fake news' and has insisted he isn't quitting.

"I'll keep going until the news of my death comes out, which will probably be fake too," he said, according to The Mirror.

He also opened up about wanting to shut out dealing with his son's illness (five-year-old Noah is recovering from liver cancer).
