Sam Smith was in love with a straight man. He is a British soul singer and he rose to his fame with his single Latch. Well the twenty two year old has spoken his mind earlier this on about his sexuality. He also admits that the man that gave him his inspiration to his heartbreaking lyrics to many of the tracks on his debut album, he never was in a relationship with.
He stated that
“It’s really tough to explain. But no, he’s not gay.
“Nothing ever happened between us. I know he loved me too, but not in that way.”
“When I wrote the record I was just really heartbroken – all I wanted to do was go to the studio and write about this guy who I fell in love with.”
He even stated that the man that he was speaking about was in fact strait saying people shy away from love for all the wrong reasons. Speaking to The Sun newspaper, he explained:
“I feel like love is a massive spectrum. But some people are so bothered about boxes, like the way they look and the way they’ve been brought up, that they don’t let themselves go to fall in love with other people.
“I think that’s what happened. He had his guard up a lot.”
