The singer, who knows them both, was asked to pick a team...

During a rapid-fire round of Plead the Fifth on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Sam Smith was thrust into the spotlight with a very tricky question.
The British crooner was asked to pick a side in the longstanding feud between Kim Kardashian West and Taylor Swift—both of whom he knows (although not as well as we’d previously thought).
‘Taylor Swift, I don’t really know her too well,’ Smith told Cohen.
‘It’s been made out that we know each other, but I don’t know her too well. I’ve only met her like five times, briefly.’
Cohen pointed out that Smith attended the Reputation singer’s birthday party, to which he responded, ‘Yeah, but, I think a lot of people went,’ noting that he and Swift didn’t speak one-on-one at the event.
So … Team Kim then?
‘I know Kim more than I know Taylor,’ Sam confirmed, though he refused to choose a side outright. ‘Well, there’s no teams is there, really?’ he said coyly.
‘I’d love to know all the details,’ Smith ultimately said of the relationship.
Amen to that, Sam.
