Sam Smith is ruling the music world right now, with sold-out shows, hit singles and awards and nominations galore. But he says in the future, he’s looking forward to settling down, and even getting into the world of retail sales.
Speaking to Teen Vogue magazine, Sam, who has said he’s never been in a “real relationship,” reveals, “The idea of having a house, a kid, a husband, and a dog…I love that.” But he adds, surprisingly, “I also really want to open a coffee and flower shop one day, probably in Italy.”
Sam struggled for years to make it and he shares with Teen Vogue the moment when things turned around for him.
“The minute I started to tell a story, everything clicked into place,” Sam explains. “I became an artist because I had something to say.” What he had to say was how he felt about unrequited love: “I fell in love with someone last year, and he didn’t love me back,” Sam reveals. “I deleted him off of WhatsApp, and it felt like I’d just broken up with him.”
That experience inspired the songs on Sam’s hit album In the Lonely Hour, and he tells Teen Vogue, “You can read as many interviews as you want, but if you put on my record, I’m telling you, that is me.”
