We all know Michael Bublé is a big fan of the holidays ... but what he isn't a fan of is those annual "defrosting" jokes that get thrown at him every year.

Speaking about his iconic Christmas album to Kate Garraway from Smooth Radio, the Canadian crooner said: "A girlfriend of mine said to me the other day, 'As much as it might bug you for people to make the jokes… You'd be devastated if you weren't part of it.'

"And she was right. I would be. I would be devastated ... But of course, there are times when it rubs you the wrong way."

The 46-year-old continued: "I mean, how many times on the street – someone comes up, and says, you know, 'Well, you've defrosted.'

"You look at them and think ... you know, you smile at them and you say, 'Ha ha ha.' But I definitely don't want to see them in comedy clubs, because if their jokes are that fresh, they're not going to have a great set!"

Christmas has sold over 16 million copies these last ten years, has had 4 billion streams (equivalent to 60 million albums), and has annually retained a #5 position on music charts around the world - making it the best-selling holiday album of the 21st century.
