Sam Smith on V Mag, Throws Shade


‘Some of these pop stars are just awful.’

V Magazine Issue 93/Inez & Vinoodh

V magazine features Sam Smith on one of its four music issue covers--alongside FKA Twigs, Jessie Ware, and Tinashe. In the interview, the "Stay With Me" singer some calls out some of his fellow pop stars for being jerks.

"Even when you meet them--I won't name names--but some of these pop stars are just awful," Smith said in his interview with Chaka Khan, according to E. "And they have not even had half the success that you've had and yet you're so humble and kind."

"Well, it's people skills," replied Khan. "Talking to a screen all day long takes the human experience out. Luckily I grew up in a time when we only had a telephone at home."

In more upbeat news, Smith and Khan agreed that they'd like to work together in the future.

"We are definitely going to write a song together," Khan told Smith. "Hundred percent, I'm in," he replied. "I was actually thinking me, you, and Mary [J. Blige] would do something."

"That'd be hot," Khan answered. "She's a good writer."

Smith replied, "My mom always used to joke around with her friends, when I was, like, 12 years old--'It's all good. Sam's just got to get Chaka Khan to sing with him when I'm in my fifties.' I rang her this morning and she was like, 'I can't believe you.'"
