Sam Smith Admits He's Had 'A Lot of One-Night Stands'
Here’s what the 22-year-old English singer had to share with the mag:
On his past relationships: “I had a lot of one-night stands… I met a few dodgy friends, people I’m definitely not friends with now.”
On the relationship between him and the first man he fell for, who didn’t feel the same way: “It makes me emotional, actually… He looked out for me for the rest of school. Until I turned 17,18, he just made sure that if anyone took the piss out of me, he would stick up for me. He could have made it hell for me, you know?”
On the homophobia he’s experienced: “He was like, I don’t want to share my eraser with a gay man… Prick. I hope he’s reading this [Another time, I was with my dad and] someone drove by and yelled “faggot”. I was just embarrassed that my dad had to see that, because I could only imagine how you feel as a parent. You just want to kill them. I was always embarrassed for the people around me. It never actually deeply affected me. You just ignore it, you know?”
