America’s Got Talent judge Howard Stern has reportedly claimed that singer Sam Smith is an “ugly motherf***er” who “looks gay”

The controversial TV personality made the comments on his SiriusXM radio show, according to the Sun.

He said: “Do you know what I love about that guy? He’s an ugly motherf***er. He’s fat. And I love it.

His co-host questioned whether Smith – who came out as gay nearly a year ago – was in the closet.

Stern replied: “You know what, he looks gay to me. Not that anybody looks gay but he does seem effeminate.

“I like that he’s chubby and gay, that’s why I love him.”

Referring to the singer’s song Stay With Me, the host said: “That’s how you know how good that song is… he’s fat and he’s gay and little girls worship him.”

Despite Smith’s six Grammy nominations, he said: “He’s really good, but I feel like this will be his only hit song.”

The ‘Stay With Me’ singer came out in May last year, when he revealed that his album ‘In the Lonely Hour’ was about a man he fell in love with.

He later revealed that the man he wrote the album for was straight and uninterested – and spoke about his dating woes.
