Out singer Sam Smith, who sings about
unrequited love in his debut album, In the Lonely Hour, says
his loneliness has been lifted mainly by his fans.
The 22-year-old Smith also told the AP
that he's been meeting men and going on dates.
“I'm going on dates, here and there,
meeting people,” he said. “I'm not lonely anymore because of
that, but obviously I would like someone next to me while I sleep.”
Smith also said he wanted to be a voice
for the LGBT community.
“It's so, so deeply important to me
to be a spokesperson,” he said. “I want to be, but not just for
gay people, for straight people, for lesbians, transsexuals, anyone
in the world. I want my music to relate to absolutely everyone.”
Smith is also one of the four out
celebrities featured on the covers
of gay glossy Out's
Out100 double issue.
