Sam Smith rose to the top of the pop charts by baring his broken heart to the world, but now he’s met someone who will keep the shattered pieces velcroed together for a while.
Sam met Jonathan on the set of his music video (who needs Grindr when you’ve got an international music career?) for “Like I Can,” where Jonathan (pictured right) was one of 20 extras dolled up in a penguin suit and hitting the town with Sam.
Here’s the chorus to the song, which doubles as a pretty solid pickup line:
Why are you looking down all the wrong roads?
When mine is the heart and the salt of the soul
There may be lovers who hold out their hands
But they’ll never love you like I can, can, can
They’ll never love you like I can, can
Sam is understandably downplaying the story, saying:
“It’s very early days. I’m talking very, very, very early days. But he’s really sweet. I met him on the video for Like I Can, he was one of 20 extras.
It’s a surreal thing to be talking about because I haven’t even confirmed with him that we’re officially seeing each other.”
But he also added:
People need to realize I’m never going to be happy. The reason I do what I do is because I’m an artist who is always going to be blue about something.
Well there’s some added pressure for any potential beau. Either way, mazel tov!
