Sam Smith has said some popstars are ‘just awful’.
In an interview with V magazine that involved him being in the same room as Chaka Khan, the gay singer declined to name any names.
‘Even when you meet them – I won’t name names – but some of these pop stars are just awful,’ he said.
Speaking directly to the ‘I’m Every Woman’ singer, he said: ‘And they have not even had half the success that you’ve had and yet you’re so humble and kind.’
Khan responded: ‘Well, it’s people skills. 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.’
The soulful pair also hinted to a possible collaboration in the future.
‘We are definitely going to write a song together,’ Khan said.
‘100%, I’m in,’ he replied. ‘I was actually thinking me, you, and Mary [J Blige] would do something.’
