The singer revealed that he feels like a man and like a woman in equal parts. 25-year-old Sam Smith has just come out as gender fluid, saying that has always been the case.
During a new interview, he revealed: ‘I do not know what the title would be, but I feel just as much woman as I am a man. I love a heel. I have got loads of heels at home. People do not know this, but when I was 17, I remember becoming obsessed with Boy George and Marilyn [Monroe], and all that.’
In addition, the star also claimed that he used to wear women’s clothing quite a lot when he was younger and never thought much of it.
‘There was one moment in my life where I did not own a piece of male clothing, really. 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,’ Smith said.
The artist also recalled that before he moved to London, at 19, he was ‘literally’ the only non-heterosexual person in the ‘village.’
As fans certainly are aware, Sam Smith is openly gay.
However, despite the fact that the Grammy winner has apparently opened up about his gender fluidity with confidence before, he is still judged a lot of the times, people ‘snarling’ at his neutrality.
‘They want to judge me. People need more conventional role models, I guess. But I just do not care to be that person.’
