Michael Buble was engaged to long-time girlfriend Debbie Timuss, a stage actress, dancer, and singer. Both were in the musicals Red Rock Diner in 1996 and Dean Regan’s Forever Swing in 1998. Timuss was listed as one of the dedicatees in Bublé’s self-titled album Michael Buble and It’s Time, and as background vocalist on It’s Time. While away in Italy, Michael Buble co-wrote the hit single “Home” for Timuss. Timuss was also featured in the music video for “Home”. Their engagement ended in November 2005. Their breakup inspired Bublé to co-write the hit original song “Lost”. During an appearance at Australian television’s Logie Awards in 2005, he met British actress Emily Blunt backstage. He thought she was a BBC television producer. She also provided background vocals on the cover of “Me and Mrs. Jones” on the album Call Me Irresponsible. The hit original song “Everything” was penned by Bublé for Blunt. Bublé’s publicist confirmed on 11 July 2008 that he had broken up with Blunt. On 12 February 2009 Bublé pledged a donation of AUD 50,000 to the victims of the February 7th Bushfires in Victoria, Australia.

Michael Buble in 2004

Michael Buble won the “New Artist of the Year” award at the 2004 Juno Awards and his album was nominated for “Album of the Year”, but lost out to Sam Roberts.

Michael Buble appeared in the 2003 movie The Snow Walker. Also in 2003 he portrayed a lounge performer on an episode of Days of our Lives. In 2004 he appeared as himself in Las Vegas.

Songs from Bublé’s debut album (“For Once in My Life”, “Kissing a Fool”) were released on the soundtrack for the movie “Down With Love” (2003). The soundtrack also included a previously unreleased duet with Holly Palmer of the movie’s title theme. The Junkie XL remix of the theme for the 60s TV cartoon version of Spider-Man from Bublé’s Babalu album was played during the closing credits of Spider-Man 2 (2004), and this version was also released as a single. A CD was released in 2004 of the 7 songs that Bublé sang for Totally Blonde, calling it Totally Bublé. After the success of Michael Bublé’s self-titled debut, DRG Records belatedly released the jazzy soundtrack from the 2001 film Totally Blonde in which Bublé had a co-starring role as a nightclub singer/club owner. Capitalizing on Bublé’s newfound stardom, DRG Records basically ignored the music’s connection to the film by altering the title and putting a shot of Bublé on the cover making it appear as if this was a proper Michael Bublé release. The slight misrepresentation was not lost on Bublé who has stated on his website that he did not want these songs released, but that it was out of his control.
