Sam Smith talks about why he had liposuction at age 12

Sam Smith has opened up about all things in his life during an interview on Jameela Jamil's new series I Weigh interviews. The Grammy winner talked about how he identifies as non-binary, gendequeer.

"You do not identify in a gender. You are just you…you are your own special creation," Sam shared during the candid conversation. "That is how I take it. I am not male or female. I think I float somewhere in between — somewhat on the spectrum."

He also opened up about how at aged 12 he had liposuction on his chest.

"When I was a kid, I was chubby…and then it would get worse and worse and worse and I was holding a lot of weight in my chest. When I hit 11 years old, I went to the doctor's. I was so self-conscious that it was affecting my mood every day and my life as a teenager," he shared. "I had liposuction, I was 12 years old."

"At the time I think I was very happy about it. It didn't really change anything. I think I put the weight back on in two weeks because I hadn't figured out my relationship with food, so it didn't really change anything. But being 12 years old and having liposuction on your chest is quite a big deal."
