Sam Smith: I'll always be emotional
Sam Smith can't wait to fall in love, but is prepared to share his heartbreak with the world through his music.
The young British star has fast become one of the hottest names in music, and his debut album In The Lonely Hour made the top ten in music charts around the world, including the US, Australia and the UK, where it peaked at number one.
The record was written about an unrequited love, but Sam says he's looking forward to one day finding The One.
"I just can't wait to be in a relationship and fall in love. I'm always thinking about the future, but I just hope all this gets easier," he smiled to Q magazine.
"At the moment, I am in control, but it takes a lot of my energy to stay in control. But I'm willing to do this for the rest of my life. If being an open wound, being sensitive and emotional is the price to pay for being able to stand on stage and hear people sing my songs back to me, then so be it."
Sam's success across the globe means he now has many friends in high places. Mary J. Blige, Katy Perry and Lorde have all become close pals, but the 22-year-old doesn't think his success in America is that surprising.
"I can only think maybe they get the honesty, and the soul. America does soul music like no one else, so maybe they hear that in my vocal? And having been in America, I now realise that, unlike a lot of Britain, they approach music with no hang-ups about what's perceived as cool. If they like it, they buy it," he explained.
