Sam Smith’s new music video for “I’m Not Here To Make Friends” has caused quite the stir online due to its risqué look.
The British singer, who is non-binary, shows off his ample assets in the video by wearing nipple pasties and a corset.
The song is from Sam’s fourth studio album, Gloria, and it features the hit single Unholy, which was made by Kim Petras.
However, due to Sam’s revealing look, the singer has been criticized online. People have blamed fatphobia and homophobia for the backlash.
In May 2014, Sam Smith and his band released their debut album.
The album was full of lovelorn songs, such as “Lay Me Down” and “Stay With Me.”
Over the years, Sam’s style and music have changed. In the past few years, he has started to embrace more upbeat songs and more outlandish clothing.
The video for I’m Not Here to Make Friends has been criticized by some people.
One commentator called it “monstrous” and “degrading.” Another said that Sam had “dressed up like a costume” and shoved his sexuality into people’s faces.
In 2019, Sam Smith admitted that they felt self conscious when he wasn’t wearing a shirt during a photo shoot.
Sam and his bandmates would often starve themselves in order to prepare for the shoot.
However, after talking about their bodies, they decided that it was time to reclaim them.
