Last year, Sam Smith confirmed that he was officially dating again.
Although he never publicly announced that he was dating 13 Reasons Why star Brandon Flynn, they have been inseparable ever since the announcement.
Now, in a recent interview with Sarah Jessica Parker for V Magazine, Sam opens up about how his relationship will affect his music.
"On a personal level, I’m in a relationship right now, and for the first time, I think I deserve to be happy," he said. "I’m actually asking myself if I’m going to be writing some happy love songs soon."
He added that he is "really proud because, even with this whole dreaded second album thing the industry makes everyone concentrate on, I’m putting out a second album that couldn’t be more me — and it couldn’t be gayer. I’m so proud of that."
He added, "I’m excited to be singing songs like 'Him' in parts of the world that maybe aren’t as open in terms of sexuality. To be that raw in front of people is daunting and scary, but the high is incredible."
Sam also explained how he wasn't always this comfortable with his sexuality, especially being so open about it. But, that's now changing!
"It’s exciting seeing people walking the streets and fighting for what they believe in," he said. "It’s nice to see people protesting — that excites me."
LOVE IS LOVE.
