I haven’t done one of those little “opinion pieces” on my blog for a while but this, I had to say…although I’ll keep it short.
Sam Smith, I don’t like your beige music and I don’t like your voice. You wrote THE worst song that’s ever been written for a Bond film. You won an Oscar for it. Good for you. I have no problem with the fact that you were given an award for something I consider atrocious, I really haven’t. I accepted long ago that my taste differs vastly from most people’s idea of taste so there are no issues here.
My problem is this: the fact you’ve won a shiny statuette does not give you the right to a political or moral platform.
My problem is that pretty much nobody but you cares about your sexuality, so WHY on earth are you bringing it up?
My problem is that if you are going to try to “make a statement”, then surely you should educate yourself before you do so. Sam Smith, you clearly have no knowledge of music history, film history, or LGBT history so why on earth did you have to open your mouth?
Well, that’s easy enough to answer, it’s because his head is far bigger than it should be and because everything has to be about him.
It’s not the first time Sam Smith has got in hot water for opening his mouth on subjects he knows nothing about, you’d think he’d learn…but he’s clearly not intelligent enough to do so. His publicists, whoever they are, should be fired for this latest über embarrassing story. After all, it is their job to make sure their client avoid those kinds of “faux pas”.
Poor little Sam Smith has left Twitter for a while, as he usually does when he makes an ass out of himself – he retires to lick his wounds in private.
I just hope he serves as an example to all the people out there who have to keep banging on about their sexuality. Nobody cares, stop letting your sexuality define who you are. Stop trying to be a victim. Stop claiming the LGBT community is discriminated against on a daily basis: they are represented in every area of the media, they have been written about more than any other community in the last 5 years. Stop, stop, stop!
I have said it ad nauseam but the only way to show everyone that something is “normal” is to just be it, live it, and not talk about it constantly.
Just keep your mouth shut in future Sam, I would never have to talk about you if it wasn’t for your utter stupidity and arrogance. Just sing for fuck sake, you have every right to do that, just as I have every right to switch off when your voice comes on air.
