Sam Smith is not biting his tongue when it comes to his music counterparts’ bad behavior. While the singer won’t get specific, is he taking jabs at Miley Cyrus & Ariana Grande?

Sam Smith, 22 has a strong opinion on a couple of today’s biggest pop stars. In the Jan. 16 issue of V Magazine, the British soul singer puts a few anonymous pop princesses on blast for their lack of humility. But, who is he talking about during his interview? Could he be shading Ariana Grande & Miley Cyrus?

Sam Smith Blasts Today’s Pop Stars In New Interview

After exploding into success during 2014, Sam is kicking off the New Year with a candid interview with one of his music idols!

The British soul singer covers the latest issue of V Magazine, on stands January 16th. In the issue, he sits down with legendary soul singer Chaka Khan, 61 to chat music — and ends up putting today’s top artists on major blast.

Though Sam won’t drop names, he has some serious criticism for a couple of today’s pop stars.

“Even when you meet them — I won’t name names — but some of these pop stars are just awful,” Sam said to Chaka during his interview. “And they have not even had half the success that you’ve had and yet you’re so humble and kind.”

Ouch! Could that be a dig at Ariana’s rumored diva attitude and Miley’s bad girl behavior?

Khan chalked up the rumored rude behavior of today’s pop superstars to being a byproduct of the digital age.

“Well, it’s people skills,” Chaka told Sam. “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.”

She brings up a good point!

The light bashing session also turned out to be a bonding session for Chaka & Sam, with the two soul crooners agreeing to collaborate on a project together alongside 43-year-old Mary J. Blige in the near future.

It was a truly surreal moment for Sam, whose mother always wanted him to work with Chaka!

“My mom always used to joke around with her friends, when I was, like, 12 years old—’It’s all good. Sam’s just got to get Chaka Khan to sing with him when I’m in my 50s.’ I rang her this morning and she was like, ‘I can’t believe you.'” he told the magazine.

Nice! What do you think Hollywoodlifers? Were his digs aimed at Miley & Ariana?
