Sam smith ilovegreatmusic

In a new interview with Australia’s “60 Minutes,” the 22-year-old Grammy winner Sam Smith gets candid on how longtime weight battle obviously still affects him to this day..

“If someone called me fat, that affects me way more than someone calling me a faggot,” he admits, referring to his sexuality. “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. If something calls you fat, that’s something I want to change.”

Smith says a big part of being overweight was his loneliness.

“I genuinely think I gained about two stones [28 pounds] when I moved [to London],” he says about relocating from a small village to London when he was 18 to pursue a music career. “Just get loads of chicken and watched ‘Lost’ every night after work.”

“The Lonely Hour, that’s where it all came from,” he jokes about the title of his critically-acclaimed album.

While hours in front of the TV didn’t help, emotional eating was a big part of his weight gain.

“When I was at school and wasn’t having a great time or when music wasn’t going very well. I would eat, eat,” the 6’4″ star explains. “Eating would make me feel better, when I felt lonely I would eat.”

These days, the “Stay With Me” singer is looking better than ever.
