During a recent interview with GQ, the British singer opened up about wanting and not wanting to be famous and pretty much blamed that on the not-so-nice celebs out there.
"You know, I want to be the biggest star in the world, but I also want to maintain the soulfulness," he shared in a new interview with GQ magazine. "I don't want to lose my mind or my humor. I want to be a pop star, but I also don't want to be a pop star."
"I will never act like some of the current pop stars have acted toward me," he shared without revealing any names. "We can be friends, you know? We can. It's not a competition. There's space for all of us."
Ouch. We can't help but wonder who he's talking about...
One person he wasn't referring to is Taylor Swift. He actually talked her and her sweetness up in that same interview.
"Taylor Swift is amazing...She's a role model," he said. "I really respect her. And she manages to sell a lot of records and make a lot of people happy financially, but also to keep that soulfulness, that honesty."
Surprised Sam is on the fence about being famous? Who do you think was the "mean" popstar?
