Sam Smith Reveals Why He Had Liposuction at Age 12

16 Mars, 2019, 04:55 | Auteur: Christine Menetries

The singer opened up to Jameela Jamil on the first of her new I Weigh interview series, where he disclosed he was bullied so badly about his chest as a child he went under the knife.

"When I saw the nonbinary, genderqueer, and I read into it, and I heard these people speaking, I was like, 'Fuck, that is me, '" the singer-songwriter said.

The Advocate reports that Smith embraces both the non-binary and genderqueer labels, and explains it to Jamil as, "You do not identify in a gender".

Smith also talked about fame, and said that the things you have to sacrifice make it not worth it: "If I had the chance to do this all again, I would not do this...." You are just you...you are your own special creation.

"In the past if I have ever done a photoshoot with so much as a t-shirt on, I have starved myself for weeks in advance and then picked and prodded at every picture and then normally taken the picture down", he wrote. "I think I float somewhere in between - it's all on the spectrum".

'I've sometimes sat there and questioned, do I want a sex change?

Giving further context, Sam responded: 'I've always had a bit of a war in my body and my mind...

Smith, who has been outspoken about his sexual orientation in the past, said he has been thinking about his gender using the same framework.

"I think the same in sexuality", he added.

"When I was a kid, I was chubby ... and then it would get worse and worse and worse and I was holding a lot of weight in my chest". "And then when I hit 11-years-old I went to the doctors". "I was so self-conscious that it was affecting my mood every day".

"I think at the time I was very happy about it".

However, Sam admitted he put back on all of the weight in a span of two weeks because he 'hadn't figured out his relationship with food'. "But being 12 years old and having liposuction on your chest is quite a big deal".

And while his struggle with body image today is "the basis of all my sadness", Smith chose to speak out about his insecurities because he hasn't "really found many men talking about this".

"It's the basis of all my sadness", he said.

The star revealed that his image has been a constant struggle throughout his life: "Literally everything I've ever been sad about is my weight".

Sam also revealed he has always been "very free" when it comes to thinking about his sexuality.

Following his public revelations, Smith, 26, said the interview with Jamil "completely changed my life".

This was the case in February when he posted a shirtless photo of himself on Instagram to "celebrate my body as it is".

"Yesterday I made a decision to fight the f-k back", he said.
