Howard Stern went off at the mouth with offensive comments about Sam Smith. It’s unsurprising that Stern can only give a compliment by effectively bashing someone at the same time and once Smith got wind of the rude remarks, he had the perfect way of saying, “You’re not even worth my time.”
In this clip below, Stern proceeds to say, “You know what I like about the guy? He’s an ugly mother-cker. He’s fat and I love it.” Then when Smith’s sexuality came into play, Stern asks, “Oh, is he gay? You know what? He looks gay to me. Not that anybody looks gay but he does seem effeminate.”
And to top things off, Stern stamped his approval on the UK singer by saying, “He’s fat and he’s gay and little girls worship him. That’s when you know you have a good song and you have a good voice.”
HOLD UP. Sam Smith not only won You Oughta Know Artist of the Year, but also tied most 2015 Grammy nominations with Beyonce and Pharrell Williams, his debut album In The Lonely Hour went platinum and he was MTV’s Best Artist of 2014. It’s straight up disrespectful to talk about the breakout artist of 2014 like he’s someone who stumbled upon fame because little girls love him.
Smith handled the situation maturely with these two short statements on Twitter:
Can’t believe what I’ve just read.
