The 36-year-old Canadian singer insists he never has an extensive list of demands for backstage at his shows, but there are a few things he always likes to find in his dressing room.
He said: "I ask for a hockey puck from the local team, if there is one, plus white towels and water.
"I don't get that thing of asking for everything under the sun."
Michael is constantly scared of his next album not doing as well as his previous efforts - but he is also worried about getting more successful because of the attention it brings.
He told Britain's HELLO! magazine: "Failure scares me. I don't care how many records you've sold, you're only as good as your last album or your last show.
"But I'm also scared of more success, because it's getting bigger and bigger and I worry about losing my privacy. When I'm at home at night, I close the drapes. I'm not like a normal guy who can walk around in his undies and that sucks."
