Sam Smith on Coming Out: ‘Listen to My Record. It Might Help You’

Sam Smith has some advice for those who are gay and are debating coming out publicly.

In an interview with Fresh 102.7 (a station), Smith, whose album In the Lonely Hour hit shelves last week, dispensed some wisdom as New York City’s Pride Week rolls on.

“I would say ‘just be yourself,’” he told the Jim & Kim Morning Show. “Just be yourself. Don’t make it an issue … Let’s make it a normality.”

He added: “To make it equal, we need to act equal. Everyone just needs to focus on themselves as individuals and do what makes them happy – and be brave.”

Smith came out as gay almost a month ago. He had noted that his debut album was about unrequited love and “a guy that I fell in love with last year, and he didn’t love me back,” in a cover story interview with The Fader.
