Sam Smith is without a doubt one of the most famous singers at the moment. The star decided to open up about his struggle with gender identity during a new interview. And Sam surely made some unexpected and never disclosed before statements.
Sam talked about his personal life during a recent interview with The Sunday Times. The star said that he feels both man and woman and he actually owns a lot of high heels. Sam revealed during his interview that he first felt unhappy with the fact that he was called a “gay singer.”
“I remember, at the beginning of my career, being called a ‘gay singer’, and I didn’t want that,” he revealed during his interview. “I wanted to be seen as a singer first, before people spoke about my private life. And now it’s changed — I’ve changed. I realize that maybe I don’t mind that title,” the famous star went on to add.
Sam revealed that he went through a lot of changes in his life. At one point, he was actually bullied because of the fact that he did not actually own men’s clothing. “I love a heel. I’ve got loads of heels at home,” he explained. “People don’t know this, but when I was 17, I remember becoming obsessed with Boy George and Marilyn and all that. There was one moment in my life where I didn’t own a piece of male clothing.”
Of course, he used the outfits that he loved everywhere, including at school. “I would wear full make-up every day in school, eyelashes, leggings with Dr Martens and huge fur coats for 2 and a half years,” the talented singer said. “I don’t know what the title would be, but I feel just as much woman as I am man.” Of course, there were some people who bullied him because of this, but there were also many who respected him, Sam said.
Sam Smith has released a new successful album, The Thrill of It All, and enjoys a huge popularity with his latest single, Too Good at Goodbyes.
