SOUNDBITES — “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 she was on the phone to her mother the whole time saying, ‘Buble’s gay. He’s hitting on my friend.’ She couldn’t believe it.” —Michael Buble, the enormously successful cover crooner, recounting how actress girlfriend Luisana Lopilato originally thought he swung for our team
