Sam Smith who covers the latest issue of V Magazine said in a recent interview with Chaka Khan, the English singer and songwriter blames some other popstars for having an “awful” attitude but he did not mention any specific names: “Even when you meet them – I won’t name names – but some of these pop stars are just awful“, the “Stay With Me” hitmaker says. “And they have not even had half the success that you’ve had and yet you’re so humble and kind”.
The 22-year-old was one of the most successful artists globally in 2014 and currently has 6 Grammy awards nominations.
Sam Smith is not the only artist to criticize modern day pop music singers recently. Bette Midler and Annie Lenox have also “berated” the sexualization of pop act, Dave Grohl recently stated that he thinks that pop music is “superficial”, Patti LaBelle called today’s pop divas “little heifers who can’t sing” and Lilly Allen said that pop music is full of “fucking Botoxed idiots”.
