English singer Sam Smith left gender labels and standards behind for good. After asking the press to refer to him using neutral pronouns – like ”they” instead of ”he” – the 28-year-old artist told an Apple Music show he wanted to be “mommy” till 35. Smith is single.
About to release the album ” Love Goes ”, Smith entertained the Vogue audience with a video about his skin care routine. According to Out magazine, the star talked about wearing makeup since he was ten and started questioning his gender at 14, the age when he started to put on makeup to go to school. It was a necessary way of expressing that he has now taken over.
“For me, makeup has become, as I get older, another way of expressing my gender”, said Smith. That love began to blossom after the star opened its gender identity and expression to the world last year.
In the wake of the revelation, says Out, he started experimenting with glitter again. But in a section of the lip gloss video – Smith prefers Haus Laboratories – he revealed the impact Lady Gaga had.
“Gaga is probably the reason why I really came to terms with my gender”, said Smith. “I was 15 when ‘The Fame’ was released and I was obsessed with Lady Gaga, and for me, she gave me total permission to be myself and be proud of my strangeness. It was a form of expression, but it was also strangely a form of protection. It was almost a way of saying to homophobes and bullies “Stay away from me a little bit because I am confident and I am powerful in my strangeness” “.
The singer also revealed that he had a hair transplant about two years ago, as he was losing hair in front.
