Sam Smith: Guys only wanted to date me because of my fame

The writing was on the wall for Sam Smith when the superstar discovered guys were only dating them because of their fame.

Finding love hasn’t always been easy for the Too Good At Goodbyes singer, who split from American actor Brandon Flynn four years ago. ‘Some people will just date me to be mates. Or to meet me. It was very odd, and I was angry. I was like, “I’ve got enough friends, I’ve got beautiful friends!”’ Sam, 30, explained.

The chart-topper channelled that frustration into a song on their album Gloria, out next Friday, called I’m Not Here To Make Friends.

However, it seems Sam may have finally got lucky after being spotted on a stroll with fashion designer Christian Cowan this week – fingers crossed he’s To Die For.

Oscar winner Sam, who came out as non-binary in 2019, also shared that they no longer party like they used to.

‘I used to love that thrill of going out and hoping that I’d meet “the guy” when out dancing. For me, going out has changed. Now, I go out purely to dance. It’s not about hooking up,’ Sam continued – revealing they have recently become hooked on a new hobby.

‘I do fish now, sometimes,’ they said. ‘I need help with it – like, if you gave me a rod, I couldn’t do it by myself. But I go on boats with other fishermen, and they teach me. I have fisherman friends!’

Appearing on the cover of Rolling Stone UK’s February/March issue, Sam added that they have plans to shell out on a loyal companion.

‘I want a tortoise. I want it to be by my side when I pass into a new life,’ they gushed.
