With the kind of year that Sam Smith and Meghan Trainor have had, they don’t need to rely on anyone to get them Christmas gifts — they can just buy whatever the heck they want. But there was a time in the past when, just like regular folks, both stars suffered through lousy Christmas gifts courtesy of clueless relatives.
Speaking to Billboard magazine, Sam says his worst Christmas present ever came from his dad, but that’s just because he wasn’t exactly clued in to little Sam’s interests. “My dad got me a build-your-own tank when I was 11,” he tells Billboard. “I don’t think he knew I was gay at that point. I got really upset.”
Meghan, meawhile, got her worst Christmas gift from her brother, and ironically, it made her feel bad about her body image — the very issue that her #1 hit “Alll About that Bass” would go on to tackle.
“My little brother bought me boxers from [my hometown of] Nantucket, that I already had a pair of,” she tells Billboard. “But he bought a smaller size, so that I was just insecure and pissed.”
Still those gifts pale in comparison to the one that MAGIC! frontman Nasri claims he received. “My brother’s t-shirts,” Nasri says, describing his worst-ever gift. “His actual t-shirts.” Why you gotta be so rude?
