Sticking to selfies is a wise move! Michael Buble strikes a pose before enjoying stroll with wife... as he puts backlash over THAT 'sexist' Instagram photo behind him 

Michael Bublé was recently accused of body-shaming a woman while on holiday with his wife and 19-month-old son Noah, in Miami, Florida.

The 39-year-old singer left many fans unhappy after he posted a photograph which features an unidentified woman's backside in the background, with the singer noting: '#myhumps #babygotback #hungryshorts #onlyinmiami'

But Buble has clearly learnt from his mistakes and stuck to taking selfies during an outing in Madrid with his beautiful spouse Luisana Lopilato on Tuesday.

Michael hammed it up for the paps, striking a pose as he snapped pictures of himself with his camera phone before taking a stroll with his model wife.

The couple, who tied the knot in 2011, looked utterly in love as they walked hand in hand through the Spanish city. 

They appeared not to have a care in the world, so it's quite hard to believe that less than two weeks ago they were embroiled in controversy when Michael posted a picture his wife had taken.

The photo shows a close shot of Michael in the foreground, with his arms crossed as he sports a form-fitting blue, V-neck T-shirt.

Behind him, a woman at the counter sporting a pair of revealing booty shorts.

'There was something about this photo lu took ,that seemed worthy of instagram,' Michael noted of the shot, taken by his wife, Luisana, 27.

The father-of-one followed that remark with a series of hashtags, in case it hadn't been clear what he was talking about: '#myhumps #babygotback #hungryshorts #onlyinmiami #picoftheday #beautifulbum'

But while the Haven't Met You Yet singer thought it was a harmless joke, plenty of followers on Instagram and Twitter took quite the offense to the photo.

Michael was bombarded with angry messages, such as one Twitter user who wrote: 'That's someone's daughter, dude.'

He responded to the controversy in a statement to UsWeekly, saying: 'I do not court controversy, but I realise that a photo that was meant to be complimentary and lighthearted has turned into a questionable issue.

The Canadian star added: 'It hurts me deeply that anyone would think that I would disrespect women or be insulting to any human being... I regret that there are people out there who found the photo offensive.'

'That was not and is not my intention. Women are to be celebrated, loved, respected, honoured and revered. I've spent my life believing that and will continue to do so.'
