Sam Smith is annoyed by Adele comparisions

Los Angeles - Sam Smith gets annoyed by Adele comparisons.

The Stay With Me is frequently compared to his fellow British superstar but is bored of people saying they are similar because they don't look like conventional musicians.

He confessed: "It just annoys me that people can't digest two pop stars singing really personal songs who don't look like normal pop stars."

The admission comes days after legendary US radio host slammed the singer's appearance and had gained prominence despite his "ugly" appearance, which he compared to the Rolling in the Deep singer.

He said: "He's an ugly motherfucker. He's fat, and I love it.

"I'd like to get him in here and congratulate him on beating the odds. He's like the male Adele."

Taking to Twitter after the comments were made on Saturday , the 22-year-old musician wrote, "I can't believe what I've just read," following up the message by writing, "Ignore."

Despite the criticism, Sam, who released his debut album, In the Lonely Hour, in 2014 - has managed to stay grounded by not suppressing his feelings.

He told Rolling Stone magazine: "The way I stay normal is carry on saying what I'm saying.

"When I'm sad, I'm sad. And when I'm having a down day, I'm having a down day. It's important not to pretend everything's okay, because sometimes things aren't okay, and that's all right... I'm a human being, that's how it should be. The way I stay normal is letting my feelings take over -- letting my feelings lead, not my mind."

Sam recently performed in LA, where celeb fans, including the Kardashians watched him perform:
