Sam Smith Reveals Why He Had Liposuction at Age 12

The singer also revealed that he has considered having a sex change but now identities as neither male or female, instead describing himself as "non-binary and genderqueer" as he feels like he floats "somewhere in between" the two genders in his mind.

The Dancing with a Stranger singer has been opening up about his lifelong struggle with weight issues and body image, revealing he underwent liposuction surgery at the age of 12.

The 26-year-old platinum-selling artist stated, "I've always been very free in terms of thinking about sexuality".

Although he thought about becoming a woman in the past, he now has dismissed the idea of having a sex change.

"Non-binary/genderqueer is that you do not identify in a gender", Smith said, according to People.

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...." That is how I take it. "It took a lot for me to do this and I was so nervous, so please be kind haha", he wrote on social media.

"Self-love, I think people think it's a destination", he said.

However, he added: "It didn't change anything because I put the weight on within two weeks because I hadn't really figured out my relationship with food". Sometimes I've questioned 'Do I want a sex change?' and it's something I still think about, like: "'Do I want to?'" "At the time I think I was very happy about it".

On Friday, Smith tweeted that doing the interview with Jamil "completely changed" his life.

In the 30-minute-long candid interview, Smith discussed his relationships with his body and a newfound understanding of his gender identity.

After going to see a doctor he was told that he had excess oestrogen in his chest which left him with breasts - that he was bullied for by his school peers - and so at just 12-years-old, he had liposuction to remove it.

"I've been with too many straight men to know that not everyone who says they are straight are fully straight", he said.

Smith shared the intereview video, noting: "A few months ago, I sat down with @jameelajamilofficial and spoke with her for her incredible @i_weigh movement".

But speaking with Jameela, Sam admitted that since not touring and over Christmas, he has turned back to bad habits and began putting weight back on. I've always resented that...

Smith offered similar sentiments in an October 2017 interview with The Sunday Times, in which he announced, "I feel just as much woman as I am man".

"It's the basis of all my sadness", he said. "Literally, everything I've ever been sad about is my weight and I struggle with it every day". I was so self-conscious that it was affecting my mood every day and my life as a teenager.
