Sam Smith has gathered six nominations for the 2015 Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year for ‘In the Lonely Hour.’ But he will have to contend with Beyonce, whose self-titled album is also nominated in the same category. Shockingly, Smith said that he wouldn’t mind if Queen Bey beat him for the golden gramophone.
In a candid new cover story for Rolling Stone, the 22-year-old singer, who is a devoted Beyonce fan, revealed that if he did win the coveted Album of the Year trophy, he would give the honor to the R&B songbird.
“She deserves it way more than I do,” he says. “I’d be embarrassed if I got it over her. If I got it, I’d give it to her.”
That would certainly be an awkward Grammy moment if that did happen. Plus, it would be a little embarrassing for Beyonce, since she already has 17 awards sitting on her mantle.
