Out singer Sam Smith recently told the
London Evening Standard that despite a recent
relationship – and public breakup – he still feels like he hasn't
had a “proper” boyfriend yet.
The 22-year-old Smith has previously
said that his debut studio album In the Lonely Hour was
inspired by unrequited love for a straight man.
“You broke my heart and now I've got
four Grammys,” he said in accepting one of the awards.
“I've stopped falling for straight
men now,” he told Evening
Standard Magazine. “After the last one, there's no way
it's going to happen to me again. The record was therapy, closure,
it saved me.”
Smith also discussed his recent breakup
with model Jonathan Zeizel, whom he dated over Christmas.
“Nothing dramatic happened,” he
said. “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. … I would say it was a relationship, but I still feel
like I haven't had a proper boyfriend yet.”
