Sam Smith early life and education


Sam is openly non-binary and gay. They had affairs and boyfriends in the past. Sam claimed to be a hopeless romantic person who fell in love with straight men and went through the phase of longing for them. During one of the Grammy Award receiving ceremony, they said

“I want to thank the man who this record is about, who I fell in love with last year. Thank you so much for breaking my heart because you got me four Grammys!”

Their first public relationship was in 2014 with Jonathan Zeizel, an American model and dancer which began on the set of their music video for “Like I Can”. They split in just two months. In 2015, Smith had a six-month romance with reality TV star Charlie King.

Sam Smith relationship history


Sam Smith is the most successful non-binary British musician whose path was well-carved and full of achievements. Sammy’s collaboration with house duo Disclosure on the song “Latch,” which showcased their lively vocals was a breakthrough. When that song was released in 2012, it became popular and Smith got a record contract as a result of the partnership. The artist had dropped “Lay Me Down,” the lead song off Sam’s debut album In the Lonely Hour, by early 2013. 

They released their second album The Thrill of it All in 2017 containing hits such as “Too Good at Goodbyes”, “Pray” and “One Last Song”. Their song Unholy featuring Kim Petras became a hitmaker globally and Sam became a phenomenon. He won four Grammy Awards and others including Brit Awards and Billboard Music Awards for their vocals and music. They collaborated with hitmakers like Calvin Harris in Desire, Normani, and Ed Sheeran

Sam Smith Career


Samuel Smith was a fat kid during their school days and was body-shamed by their fellow students. He announced himself as gay in 2014 and turned out to be gender binary in 2019. Sam prefers the pronouns they/them since they claim themselves as non-binary. Samuel loves feminism and is very vocal about the rights of women, gays, non-binary, and genderqueer communities. On one occasion they said,

“I feel just as much a woman as I am a man. I didn’t own a piece of male clothing and would wear full makeup while attending school”.

Recently, they turned out to be very loud about their opinions on mainstream media and use social media platforms to tell people about their thoughts. Sam used a satanic theme in one of his concerts in Europe and British media took serious note of that. Journalist Pier Morgan criticized them for being open and for spreading vulgarity and satanism. The image Sam portrayed was already part of pop culture four decades back when Madonna depicted satanism in her live concerts. Coincidentally, both artists worked together on the song “Vulgar”. 

Now the main point of concern is the revolution in the culture. The type of ideas sold by the British singer and songwriter aren’t equally accepted by every section of society as they contain many objectionable and debated aspects such as gender identity, nudity, sexual preferences, and satanism. Sam Smith is a famous music figure and the type of culture they promote whether good or bad, will be decided by the music fandom in the future. Music plays a vital role in the lives of people but the way the artist uses this platform today shows that the future will be more complex.
