Sam Smith has revealed he thinks some pop stars are "awful" because of their bad attitudes towards other artists

Sam Smith thinks some pop stars are "awful".

The 22-year-old singer has revealed some of the musical sensations he has met since gaining prominence have been unsavoury characters, but refrained from identifying the specific musicians who he has taken a dislike to

He admitted: "Even when you meet them - I won't name names - but some of these popstars are just awful."

The 'Stay With Me' hitmaker - whose debut album 'In the Lonely Hour' was one of the best-selling records of 2014 - continued to berate the unidentified individuals by saying he would be nothing but friendly to them, despite being more famous.

He continued: "And they have not even had half the success that you've had and yet you're so humble and kind."

The comments were made while the hit musician was speaking to 'I'm Every Woman' singer Chaka Khan, who explained she felt lucky to grow up in a time without the internet as it helped her to stay down to earth.

She replied: "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."

During their chat, the pair also teased a future collaboration by saying they hoped to head into the studio together to record a track.

The 61-year-old artist said: "We are definitely going to write a song together."

Speaking in V magazine, Sam added: "100%, I'm in. I was actually thinking me, you, and Mary [J Blige] would do something."
