Sam Smith has opened up about his life between albums in a chat with none other than Sarah Jessica Parker for V Magazine. In the interview, Smith talked about not so much coming to terms with being gay but rather growing into it. When I wrote that first album, I was in love with a straight man, he didn't love me back, and I was very comfortable in my longing. I started having proper relationships with men.
Sam Smith has revealed that he decided to come out as gay before releasing his album as he thought that "people probably would have thought I was lying just to sell records" if he waited until afterwards. During an appearance on The Ellen Show , Smith said that while he knew his honestly could impact the success of the record, he wanted people to know what had inspired the material. And it felt like a brave thing to do as well I wanted to do it before because if I did it afterwards people probably would have thought I was lying just to sell records. It didn't feel like a coming out. I came out when I was like four years old. However, the year-old said that he was not entirely comfortable with being seen as a spokesperson for the gay community as he did not want to alienate his other fans. I do, of course I do, but I want to be a spokesperson for everyone.
GQ Heroes. Earlier this year, the British singer came out as nonbinary, neither identifying as male nor female. It was a huge — and powerful — admission. But while the realisation has proven life-changing for the multi-Grammy Award winner, their self-acceptance remains a work in progress Smith has stumbled plenty of times as they tried to talk as effectively about queer history as their music does about loneliness. But each time, Smith picks themself back up and made the same pledge: they're going to learn; they're going to educate themself; they're going to be better. Aged 18, they moved to London, from a small village in Cambridgeshire, and had a difficult year trying to find their place before they shot to fame and that vacuum where real life is hard to come by. It was during this year that they also had his first long relationship with a man. They want to talk about how hard it can be to be gay and to be someone with an unconventional body in the public eye — how hard it is to be in the public eye at all.
