Sam Smith OK With Being Called “A Faggot” Just Not “Fat”

From a young age food has controlled me…When I was at school and wasn’t having a great time or when music wasn’t going very well, I would eat, eat. Eating would make me feel better. When I felt lonely, I would eat. If someone called me fat, that affects me way more than someone calling me a faggot. I think just because I’ve accepted that, if someone calls me a faggot, it’s like, I am gay and I’m proud to be gay so there’s no issues there. But if someone calls you fat, that’s something I want to change.”

Four-time Grammy snatcher Sam Smith opens up about his body issues after dramatic weight loss.
