Sam Smith Comes Out as Genderqueer, Non-Binary

Sam Smith

"I had liposuction, I was 12 years old", Smith said in an interview with Jameela Jamil on Friday's episode of her Instagram series "I Weigh Interviews."

'I've tried to change that into my thoughts on gender... when I move, when I have sex with men, it's very feminine.

Though those identifying as gender non-conforming often times prefer to be addressed with."the pronouns "they" and "them", Sam Smith noted he wishes to continue to use the pronouns "he" and "him".

Smith also talked about fame, and said that the things you have to sacrifice make it not worth it: "If I had the chance to do this all again, I would not do this.... You are your own special creation", he continued.

"In the past if I have ever done a photoshoot with so much as a t-shirt on, I have starved myself for weeks in advance and then picked and prodded at every picture and then normally taken the picture down", he wrote. "I think I float somewhere in between - somewhat on the spectrum", Sam said.

However, he added: "It didn't change anything because I put the weight on within two weeks because I hadn't really figured out my relationship with food".

'At the time I think I was very happy about it, ' he said, 'It didn't really change anything. The 26-year-old revealed to Jamil that he identifies as "non-binary", explaining, "When I saw the word non-binary/genderqueer and I read into it and I heard these people speaking, I was like, 'Fuck, that is me'". "I do think like a woman sometimes in my head".

European Union imposes sanctions against Russians involved in capture of Ukrainian sailors
The US, Canada and the European Union on Friday again pressed for Moscow to release the detained Ukrainian crew. The Russian navy captured 24 Ukrainian sailors during the clash.

The singer discussed the difficulty of opening up about body image, because he sees the conversation as taboo with men.

The full interview is available of Jameela Jamil's Instagram page here. Smith shared, "When I was a kid, I was chubby", explaining that he was "holding a lot of weight in my chest" and developed "breasts".

His mum took him for the operation, which he admits worked at first but ultimately "didn't really change anything" because he soon put the weight back on.

Sam also revealed that he once considered having a sex change and that he yearns to be free from the trappings of fame. "I'm feminine in many ways - and I've always resented that".

"Being 12 years old and having liposuction on your chest is quite a big deal", he said.

"It doesn't feel manly, does it, to talk about how I feel in my body every day", he remarks.

"It's the basis of all my sadness", he said.

"Everything I've ever been sad about is my weight", he admits. Though Smith lost a reported 50 pounds before the release of his 2017 album, "The Thrill of It All", he still needs to "fight the fuck back" against his insecurities.
