    No offense, but how does not liking Michael Jackson make him an "arrogant prick."?

    Michael didn't like Madonna, yet millions love her, does that make Michael a prick?

    Why should there be outrage over him saying he doesn't like any of those artist? IF you were to ask any other common person what they thought, you'd have a variety of answers, all which would be more easily accepted.

    We've got to start learning that not everyone has to adore Michael or see him the same way fans do. Sam Smith is a very talented musical artist and to that, his credited is due.

    And, what I saw was a video of 10-15 seconds.. It was not smart for a celebrity, because he should know this would go viral, but he could have meant it in more ways than we are suggesting right now. I don't like (all of) his songs, but he's a talented singer.

    The video was posted accidentally. He thought it was a photo he was posting.

    This is really not a big deal. We all have family, friends, or co workers that dont care for mike.. that doesnt make anyone prickish

    Agree. He can dislike MJ, and I can dislike him. All's good.

    I have relatives that don't listen to secular music at all, only gospel. So Mike is not someone they would listen to in the first place. They don't allow non gospel music to be played in their homes. Some only listen to traditional church music & spirituals, not stuff like Kirk Franklin or trap gospel or gospel rap. I know other people who mostly listen to jazz or blues or reggae or other less mainstream music. There's also the goth people who listen to The Cure or Bauhaus. So not everybody even listens to the style of music Mike makes

    I've read that many people have downplayed Sam's achievements, but in reality, Sam is quite famous. He might not be as popular as Adele, Ed Sheeran or Bruno Mars, but he is quite a household name in different countries.

    I think Sam dislikes Michael's persona than his music. He likes Human Nature, and on a previous post, You Rock My World. Of course, he has the right to dislike or dislike any artist since that's his preference and I don't think he needs to be crucified for it, however reading Stephanie's aggressive response to Sam made me think that it came from another place (not really entirely about Michael).

    sure, that's true. The music closest to my heart are the old big band/swing/ American jazz standards. A lot of people like music that doesn't fall in a genre that Michael excelled in.
    Sam Smith happens to be a "blue eyed pop soul singer", so it made it shocking and that's why it went viral.

    He's arrogant because he casually said he didn't like michael jackson while hanging out? He wasn't giving a formal interview...
    Cringe.

    But it wasn't him was it?
    Lambert filmed himself in sunglasses,without realising Sam Smith,came out with the comment then deleted the video off.
    By then,it was too late,and the storm had already raged on social media
