Sam Smith Really Doesn’t Want to Be Called ‘Fat’
Bullying is never okay, but for Sam Smith one particular insult hurts more than any other.
"Two years ago I got punched in the neck and one year ago I got called a 'f-----'," he said. But the homophobic slur didn't faze him like another cruel remark. "If someone called me fat, that affects me way more than somebody calling me a 'f-----'," he said.
Sam went on to explain. "If someone calls me a 'f-----,' it's like, but I am gay and I'm proud to be gay so there's no issue," he said. "If someone calls you 'fat' it's like, that's something I want to change, that's something I can change. That affects me more."
Sam opened up about how his weight has always been a concern for him. "Food has controlled me, basically," he said. "When I was at school and I wasn't having a great time or when music wasn't going very well, I would eat, and eating made me feel better. When I felt lonely I would eat."
