Sam Smith Thinks Singers Should Class It Up a Bit

Sam Smith shows off his edgy side in the new issue of Vogue, out on newsstands now!

Here’s what the 22-year-old British singer had to share with the mag:

On not being overly cautious: “I find that the danger of giving too much away excites me, so I give you everything. ‘Make mistakes!’ I tell myself. ‘You’re only 22. Fall in love with as many people as you can! Get your heart broken!’ I need to go through all of this to feel human. Because my life right now, how I’m living, isn’t very human.”

On his music not making him sad: “People think that because I’m being honest and talking about pain it’s sad, but to me it’s empowering. Talking about my deepest and darkest secrets to the world makes me feel better. It’s cathartic. And that’s a bit f–ked up, if I’m honest. But it helps me.”

On staying classy: “There is a way to share an insight into your personal life without being classless, which is what I’m trying to do. Let’s not get our asses out, people. Let’s put on a suit.”

    Describing something as ‘f–ked up’ and then giving advice on staying classy. Ironic.

    Wiser words were never spoken and it meshes well with the times I have heard him talk about things. He’s a very classy and genuine guy and others in that biz would do well to heed his advice.

  • mm366

    Ironic yes, but does that make what he said wrong? Nope, it doesn’t.

  • Mara

    Agreed. Not meaning that it does.

    Sam Smith needs to sing or shut up! Enjoy the ride while it lasts and don’t come to America and try to dictate it’s culture! Fans put you where you are and they will take you down, fast! As a homosexual one would think you’d be one to embrace people’s differences. People are free to be who they want to be. It’s up to individuals to choose!

    All this business about being edgy re his past sounds more like blackmail. There were probably a few guys who were kind to a young fellow starting out in the business, not realizing they were going to be included in his ‘crushes’. BTW, I think he wore out his welcome in the states last week. Taylor had used him for enough photo ops and let him go on his merry way.
