Sam Smith is getting mauled right now by social media after he accidentally revealed that he doesn’t like Michael Jackson.
The singer was on a boat with Adam Lambert who was recording video of the two as Smith mused, “I don’t like Michael Jackson, but this is a good song.”

y’all in these comments saying it’s ok cos it’s his opinion but if it was another legend or icon from this generation everyone would have flipped. sam doesn’t like him for a reason and it’s probably dumb— LISTEN TO QUEEN BETCHES (@darkechile) August 10, 2018
Sam Smith is over. What self respecting musician says they don’t like Michael Jackson? Honey..— Con Li (@Guido_Conz) August 10, 2018
Yes Sam Smith can have his opinion, of course. But you can’t just say “I don’t like Michael Jackson”, you have to say “I’m very sorry but Michael Jackson’s songs aren’t my fave.” That’s it. Pay some respect to the ultimate LEGEND and forever #1 of billions. pic.twitter.com/jLsyBx8uva— F (@ItsokF) August 10, 2018
Michael Jackson wouldn’t like your music either.— 94Wraith (@DreamExquisite) August 12, 2018
Guess this is a learning experience: don't say you don't like MJ in a public forum. Who would've known?
