Sam Smith: No more straight men

Sam Smith admits he's learnt to "hold off" before making a relationship public.

Sam Smith insists there’s “no way” he’ll be falling for straight men anymore.

The 22-year-old is open about his sexuality and has poured plenty of his feelings into his debut album, In the Lonely Hour. He recently split from his boyfriend Jonathan Zeizel, who he dated for around two months after meeting on the set of the music video for Like I Can, and it seems Sam has once again penned tracks about his heartbreak.

“I’ve stopped falling for straight men now. After the last one, there’s no way it’s going to happen to me again. The record [In the Lonely Hour] was therapy, closure, it saved me," he explained to ES Magazine.

“I’ve written a song about another person recently. You know I split up with someone a few weeks ago?”

His heartfelt lyrics have been praised by many and he stormed the Grammy Awards last weekend with four wins, including record of the year and best new artist. With his new-found confidence comes the ability to admit he may have slipped up by rushing into his last relationship before establishing things properly.

“Nothing dramatic happened. I made a mistake by posting pictures of us on Instagram and making it seem more serious than it was. I flew him to Australia and we had a nice time… We just weren’t very compatible, but I’ve learned that I need to hold off before I start getting the public involved," he sighed. “I would say it was a relationship, but I still feel like I haven’t had a proper boyfriend yet.”

Sam is determined to remain true to himself as his fame continues to grow and will always be honest with his opinions. He hopes that in “400 years”, a young boy going through the struggle of coming to terms with his sexual preference will listen to his music and be inspired.

In the meantime he can count Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga and Kim Kardashian as fans, the last of which he admits smells “f**king glorious”.
