Behind the Scenes: Sam Smith’s Rolling Stone Magazine Moments

sam smith-thatgrapejuice-rolling stone cover

The past two weeks have seen headlines dominated by Brit-hitmaking crooner Sam Smith.

One end of news, excitement continues to grow for his showing at the 2015 Grammys, where his nominations include “Album of the Year.”  Elsewhere, the singer has battled unceremonious slammings from the likes of shock jock Howard Stern who jabbed him with a slew of insults, including calling him  a “fat, ugly motherf*cker.” 

But, not even the jeer from Stern has stopped the Smith train from rolling, as evidenced by his first appearance on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine.  Hitting newsstands Friday, the mag is already making news for its content regarding love for Beyonce and Taylor Swift and those “annoying” Adele comparisons, the feature story is also accompanied with an exclusive look behind the scenes of its creation.

Channeling his inner “George Michael,” see videos and more of the action below:

The two may have spent most of late 2014 sharing an e-spat here or there after news originally surfaced that they’d broken up, but the fire surrounding the story reached its highest heights when Beezy took to the Breakfast Club (Power 105) for a tell-all interview and implied that the rapstress doesn’t write her own material.

Now, the producer is singing a different tune.

Read below as he clears up any confusion about his statements, or lack thereof, regarding Minaj’s skills:

iggy azalea-thatgrapejuice-jill scott-eve

Iggy Azalea is taking to Twitter yet again to defend herself from naysayers who aren’t exactly on board with her brand of hip hop.

For, just days ago, rapper Eve and songstress Jill Scott joined the ranks of a growing list of emcees and entertainers including Q-Tip, J. Cole, Nicki Minaj, Azealia Banks, Eminem, and more, who have expressed displeasure with the Aussie hitmaker’s “blaccent” (Black accent) and overall image.

Their message did not fall on deaf ears, however.  And, despite not singling the ‘With This Ring’ duo out, it’s pretty clear the two were included in Azalea’s mass reminder and defense of her authenticity.
