In a very personal interview with Rolling Stone, Sam Smith talks about falling in love with a straight boy in school, his experiences with anti-gay bullying, and struggling through the early part of his career before he began playing for sold-out audiences at Madison Square Garden. The Rolling Stone story shows that, despite all of his hardships, Sam Smith worked hard to be successful––and his success is phenomenal. His hit single "Stay With Me" topped the UK charts and has received Grammy nominations for Record of the Year and Song of the Year. His album "In the Lonely Hour," has also been nominated for Album of the Year, going up against his long time idol, Beyoncé.

Sam Smith’s music, as well as his story, make him an undeniable star. Judging from his Rolling Stone cover, he looks the part, too––regardless of what certain radio personalities may think.
