So how does Sam Smith deal with homophobia? He just ignores it.
“You just want to kill them. I was always embarrassed for the people around me.
“It never actually deeply affected me. You just ignore it, you know?”
Sam, who came out in 2014, opened up homophobic bullying in the interview, but he was actually more embarrassed that his dad had to witness any anti-gay remarks thrown at him. He said,
“I was just embarrassed that my dad had to see that, because I could only imagine how you feel as a parent.”
Smith became the only artist in the world to score a million-selling album in both the UK and the US during 2014.
Meanwhile over in Canada, these 10-year-old twins, Abby and Sarah, managed to wow Ellen and her audience with the most awesome Sam Smith guitar medley ever.
