The breakout star of 2014 wants to take over the music industry!
Sam Smith was arguably the music industry's biggest breakout star of 2014, and with becoming a huge success it seems the British singer's confidence is at an all-time high - especially when he talks about his bright future.
Sam wants to be the biggest star in the music industry
After the release of his first album, 'In the Lonely Hour' (released May 26th), which includes the singles 'Stay With Me' and 'I'm Not the Only One,' Sam quickly became a global star. But when the hit maker recently spoke with GQ magazine, he is adamant this is just the beginning.
"You know, I want to be the biggest star in the world, but I also want to maintain the soulfulness," he said in the new interview. "I don't want to lose my mind or my humor. I want to be a pop star, but I also don't want to be a pop star."
The 22-year-old star is very grateful for all of his fans and success, but even though he loves being a singer, Sam admitted to the magazine that some of his fellow pop stars haven't exactly been nice to him.
"I will never act like some of the current pop stars have acted toward me," he revealed, but did not name any names. "We can be friends, you know? We can. It's not a competition. There's space for all of us."
Sam, who is openly gay, also spoke to GQ about his love life and confessed that he recently met two potential partners who were totally the opposite of each other. In the end, the BRIT Award winner chose to be with the person he described as "dangerous."
"I want that excitement. I want something that's unobtainable. I made a statement recently about how Grindr and Tinder and those dating apps are just killing romance. People are losing the ability to just walk up to people in a bar and say hello. Sex is on tap, isn't it, with apps like that?" he asked. "It may work for some people, but I miss the mystery. I find it much more sexy when someone's fully dressed in a suit and you've got to work to undress them. Do you know what I mean?"
However, Sam would much prefer the attention to be on his music and singing, and not his relationships. "I am not Sam Smith, the gay singer. I am Sam Smith, the singer who happens to be gay," he said. "I'm still figuring out who I am. I don't want to pretend I've got everything sorted out in my mind, because I really don't."
