Sam Smith is speaking up!

 

At some point in almost everyone’s life, you have probably struggled with your own body image, and Sam Smith is no different. The singer admitted that in the past, he would starve himself before photo shoots but now, he is reclaiming his body.

Smith has been open about his longtime struggle with body image that started when he was bullied as a child for his weight and sexuality.

Sam Smith posed shirtless for photographer Ryan Pfluger, and shared one of the photos with a very powerful message.

Check it out:

 

 

 

“In the past if I have ever done a photo shoot with so much as a t-shirt on, I have starved myself for weeks in advance and then picked and prodded at every picture and then normally taken the picture down. Yesterday I decided to fight the fuck back. Reclaim my body and stop trying to change this chest and these hips and these curves that my mum and dad made and love so unconditionally. Some may take this as narcissistic and showing off but if you knew how much courage it took to do this and the body trauma I have experienced as a kid you wouldn’t think those things. Thank you for helping me celebrate my body AS IT IS @ryanpfluger I have never felt safer than I did with you. I’ll always be at war with this bloody mirror but this shoot and this day was a step in the right fucking direction ????????????????”
