Sam Smith is off the market!
On October 23, the singer spoke to Ellen DeGeneres about his brand new relationship with 13 Reasons Why star Brandon Flynn.
“No, I’m not [single], which is crazy,” he said to DeGeneres when revealing his new relationship status. “It’s weird bringing out an album and not being single. Because when I brought out In the Lonely Hour I was so lonely,” he told the host. “Now I’m singing songs about another guy but I’m quite happy, so it’s quite weird.”
The singer- songwriter joked that his absence was because he had to go away and “kiss more boys” and get back to a normal life in order to make his new album, The Thrill of It All, which will be released on November 3.
Though he didn’t mention his new boyfriend by name, the Oscar winner has recently been photographed holding hands and kissing Flynn. The duo was also seen together at the Tony Award winning musical Dear Evan Hansen and were walking down Greenwich Village hand-in-hand that same week.
The “Say It All” singer also spoke about his speech flub in which he claimed he was the first openly gay man to win an Oscar. He said that he didn’t think he had a chance to win the coveted award. He now knows he “mucked up” his words, which also made for a hilariously awkward run-in with Elton John later.
