Young Sam Smith opens up about life and desires, but in a comprehensive way, making it possible for teenagers to learn and use his young wisdom as an example for their own future.

Here are some highlights.

On being himself, he admits it can be scary.

“Being yourself can be quite scary… Music is everything because it’s my way of expressing myself. I’m a highly emotional boy, but there are other things that I love. Like food. I love food more than life.”

On finding his voice, he said always wanted to say something, as an artist.

“The minute I started to tell a story, everything clicked into place. I became an artist because I had something to say and that’s why to me, even when people mention my voice on the record, I get quite shocked because when it comes to the singing, I can sing a lot more than what I did on the record. I held it back because I wanted the focus to be on the music and the songs and what I was saying.”

About wanting to be a professional singer, he said he wanted it badly.

“I wanted this so badly that I was willing to completely sell myself to become a pop star because I was poor. No one was complimenting me anymore, so I started to lose my faith. I thought, I’m going to have to dress a certain way, lose weight, or sing a certain type of song. But the truth is, I was OK just as I was.”

On being emotional: “I stand onstage and I wanna cry for the entire thing because people know my business. You all know me. You can read as many interviews as you want, but if you put on my record, I’m telling you, that is me. I fell in love with someone last year, and he didn’t love me back. I deleted him off of WhatsApp, and it felt like I’d just broken up with him. On the record you can hear heartbreak, and there’s a beauty in that I will always treasure.”

His love for music and fashion divas is profound.

“As a kid I collected Vogue every month for three years. My cross earrings are a mini statement; I wear them every day! My whole dream is to be iconic, and the way you dress yourself is so important.”

About his life goals, he is determined.

“The idea of having a house, a kid, a husband, and a dog…I love that. I also really want to open a coffee and flower shop one day, probably in Italy.”

And being homosexual is just getting better.

“With the whole gay thing, I’ve had zero reaction, which says something beautiful about our generation and how things are getting a little bit better.”
