Writings on the Wall singer Sam Smith has revealed he will no longer read journalists’ reviews.

Smith took to Twitter this week to state: “It’s so tough to win the thumbs up from people that are paid to come to see what you do, when they could hate your music to begin with.”

“Sometimes you’re never going to win. The reviews I care about are from YOU. And only you – my fans. The people who have put me here.”

The British hit-maker is currently wrapping up his, In the Lonely Hour Tour down under in Australia, to which he quipped, “On another note – I’M HAVING THE BEST TIME xxxx”
