Sam Smith Admires Taylor Swift For Her Soul & Honesty

Sam Smith is eye-catching in red in a feature for GQ‘s magazine’s February 2015 issue!

Here’s what the 22-year-old singer had to share with the mag:

On pop stars he admires: “Taylor Swift is amazing. I sang with her in London once but didn’t get to properly chill with her. Then, at the American Music Awards, I got to sit down with her and chat. She’s a role model. I really respect her. And she manages to sell a lot of records and make a lot of people happy financially, but also to keep that soulfulness, that honesty.”

On relationships: “In relationships. I feel so much more comfortable wanting what I’m never going to get. Like recently, I met two guys. One of them on paper is perfect and ticks all the boxes. The other is dangerous and—well, he ticks boxes actually, too. I’ve chosen him. I want that excitement. I want something that’s unobtainable. I made a statement recently about how Grindr and Tinder and those dating apps are just killing romance. People are losing the ability to just walk up to people in a bar and say hello. Sex is on tap, isn’t it, with apps like that? It may work for some people, but I miss the mystery. I find it much more sexy when someone’s fully dressed in a suit and you’ve got to work to undress them. Do you know what I mean? Instead of them just immediately being naked for you. I sound like a complete old soul right now, but I am. I just feel like people need role models, you know, that are dressed.”

On not being a diva: “I’d like to be a diva in the sense of having that kind of presence as a singer. But no. I worry all the time, actually, if I’ve been a bit strict about something, am I being a dickhead? I tell my team all the time: Just tell me if I’m being a dickhead.”
