Sam Smith is celebrating two things today: his 23rd birthday and a successful surgery. 

According to the Massachusetts General Hospital, his vocal cord surgery was successful and he is expected to make a full recovery.


The surgeon, Dr Seven Zeitels, also performed the same surgery on Lionel Richie, Steven Tyler, and Adele.

They have revealed that Sam’s condition was the result of unstable blood vessels in the vocal cord that can rupture and prevent vocal performance.

Last month Sam had to cancel shows, and he also missed the Billboard Music Awards this week where he won Top Male Artist. He appeared by video using cards to say thank you and express his excitement. 

We are so happy and can't wait for Sam to start singing again.

His next show is July 18. 


Poor Sam Smith has been in a bad way for the past while, but it looks like he could finally be on the mend.

Even though he won't be able to speak for three weeks, he is getting an operation on his vocal cords and is hoping to be back to singing his heart out within eight weeks.

The star took to Instagram to share the news with his followers.

He captioned the photo below: "Bad news. I have my operation booked for next week, so getting really nervous. But by doing this in 8 weeks time I'm gonna be able to sing like never before so it's worth it. I am so sorry to all. Dreading the next month thou, I can't speak for THREE WEEKS after the op. "

Sam recently told his fans that he hadn't been able to speak in three days because he suffered a haemorrhage on his vocal cords, causing him to cancel a number of shows in Australia. He then flew to the US to seek help.

The singer was "very upset" to have to cancel shows but hopefully he will be back to his old self soon. 



Earlier this week, singer Sam Smith took to social media to break the news that a string of his gigs were to be cancelled due to ill health, and he has finally shared an update on his condition.

The 22-year-old, who has been forced to pull out of his entire Australian tour due to a vocal cord haemorrhage, shared his frustrations through his Instagram account.

Posting a photo of himself standing in the rain, swamped by a big hoodie and looking very miserable indeed, the star revealed that he hasn’t been able to speak for three days.

“Just to let all my beautiful fans know, I’m ok. I am insanely relaxed and am somewhere in the middle of Australia with no phone, no laptop and I haven’t spoken a word in three days. Trying my absolute best to be back on my feet and singing for next week,” he wrote underneath the picture.

Sam admitted that while he is enjoying the time out from his busy schedule, it has made him realise just how much he loves being on stage.

“I’m gonna go back to my black and white movies and pretend I’m Judy Garland for a few more days,” he added, jokingly.

A number of Sam’s fans took the opportunity to express their concern for the star, with one follower urging him: “You need to slow down, you’re pushing yourself too hard and you are getting too thin. Take care.”

We’re sending Sam our love, and we hope that he feels better very soon.



Sam Smith is currently on the Australian leg of his concert tour, but he has been forced to cancel all remaining Australian concerts due to severe vocal chord issues.

The Stay With Me singer said he had been feeling "vocally exhausted" of late, and doctors finally realised he had suffered a small haemorrhage on his vocal chords.

In a statement released via Instagram earlier this morning, Sam said he was under doctor's orders not to perform for the next while. "The doctors have told me I need to fully rest until my vocal chords have healed, otherwise this could become a huge long-term issue," he wrote. 

"I am deeply, deeply saddened to tell my Australian fans, I have to cancel my Australian tour."

The singer performed his first gig in Sydney last night and was due to appear there again tonight, with further gigs in Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth also lined up. 

After Australia Sam is set to perform in Japan, followed by US and European dates in May and June.

While the Australian gigs are definitely cancelled and will be rescheduled for December 2015, it's not clear what will come of the rest of Sam's tour. "I am so sorry to all who have bought tickets, I truly am. This kills me," wrote the singer.

The 22-year-old star has been on a gruelling health and fitness regime over the last  couple of months, and has debuted a noticeably slimmer figure of late. Last month he revealed he had dropped 14 pounds in just two weeks after enlisting the services of celebrity nutritionist Amelia Freer.

Wishing Sam a speedy recovery.



Having dropped almost 42 lbs, the incredibly talented Sam Smith has opened up about the journey he went on before finally becoming comfortable in his own skin.

Revealing in a recent interview that he used food and eating as a coping mechanism, the Stay With Me singer said: "When I was at school and wasn't having a great time or when music wasn't going very well. I would eat, eat… eating would make me feel better, when I felt lonely I would eat."

Admitting that he has been verbally abused in the past on account of his sexual orientation, the star said that that does not have the same effect on him that being called fat does, saying: "If someone calls me a f***** it's like, 'I am gay and I'm proud to be gay', so there's no issues. But if someone calls you fat, that's something I want to change." 

The singer opened up during an interview on Australian TV show A Current Affair and revealed that his relationship with food was a complex one, admitting: "From a young age food has controlled me."

The 22-year-old singer/ songwriter has since established a healthier approach to food and often takes to social media to update fans and followers on his progress, having recently posted: "4 pounds away from my goal weight and feel happier and healthier than ever #eatnourishglow."

It takes a lot of courage to speak so candidly so we take our hats of to one of our favourite singers!



While we reckon Sam Smith always looks fabulous, there’s no denying he seems very comfortable in himself lately.

And no wonder – Sam has been working his butt off in a bid to get healthy and it seems his efforts are well and truly paying off.  


Beautiful day in Lille. Now en route to Paris!! I'm excited to see you x

New photos of the Grammy-award winning singer show him looking very svelte – and more importantly, happy – so hats off to you, Sam!


Just two months ago, Sam Smith took to Twitter to tell the world he was choosing to ignore the cruel comments made about him by radio host Howard Stern.

Howard sent Sam and his fans into outrage when he called the Stay With Me singer "fat" and an "ugly motherf***er" live on air back in January.

Despite rising above Howard's comments at the time, it seems Sam has indeed decided to make some big lifestyle changes. The singer revealed on Instagram this week that he's dropped a whopping 14 pounds in just two weeks.

Taking to Instagram to share the news, Sam posted a picture of himself holding a book by celebrity nutritionist Amelia Freer. "Three weeks ago I met a woman who has completely changed my life. Amelia Freer has helped me lose over a stone in 2 weeks and has completely transformed my relationship with food," Sam wrote.

"Everyone go check out her incredible book, and start to live healthy. It's not even about weight loss it's about feeling happy in yourself. Love you Amelia & thank you for making me feel so happy inside and out @ameliafreer #eatnourishglow."

As well as changing up his diet, Sam's also been going hard at the gym – just yesterday he shared a picture of him looking exhausted after some weight training with the caption, "gym is kicking my ass today."

We're delighted to see Sam embarking on a healthier lifestyle, but we hope he knows to take things slowly and with care, too.



While it may seem like life couldn't be better for 22-year-old singer Sam Smith, the talented performer admitted in a recent interview with the Observer Review that this isn't really the case

Having won four Grammy awards in recent weeks, Sam's star couldn't be shining any brighter, but the young singer revealed that he's been struggling to stay grounded over the last year.

Confessing that a huge amount of effort goes into trying to maintain a normal life, the Stay With Me singer said: "I've spent as much energy this past year trying not to go mental as I have plugging my record. You have to."

Revealing that fame isn't always easy to deal with and isn't 'necessarily a nice thing', Sam explains: "It's like your body's trying to float away. And you're hanging on for dear life."

Sam, who has pulled at the heartstrings of music lovers around the world with his incredible debut album In the Lonely Hour, admits that his second album isn't going to be a massive departure from his first.

Continuing to deal with unrequited love and heartbreak, the much-loved star joked that the public may be disappointed with the lack of cheery songs, saying: "Any normal person, after that first record, would think, 'Second album, let's bring out some happy music. Give everyone a break."

But whatever he comes out with is sure to be a corker, right?!



This is just way, way too far! TV star and radio personality, Howard Stern has been blasted for branding UK singing sensation, Sam Smith “an ugly motherfu**er”…when describing why he likes him so much. Eh?

The radio show host was describing Sam when he came up with some less-than-pleasant reasons as to why he admires him: “You know what I like about that guy? He’s an ugly motherfu**er. He’s fat.”

He then went on to say that Sam seems effeminate, saying: “Is he gay? He looks gay to me, not that anybody looks gay, but he does seem effeminate. I like that he’s chubby and gay. That’s why I love him.”

Wow – and how could Sam possibly be offended by your list of things you love about him, Howard? Replying to the cruel words, Sam decided to take the high road and simply tweeted: “Can’t believe what I’ve just read … Ignore.”

We love that he isn’t letting people get him down – there’s a lot of cruel people to put up with when you reach the top it would seem!

Sam is currently nursing a broken heart after his relationship with boyfriend of two months, Jonathon Zeizel came to an abrupt end last week. 



It sounds like it may be all over for Sam Smith and his new beau Jonathon Zeizel already after the singer hinted at a break-up on Instagram last night.

The pair have been dating for two months but now it looks as if things may have taken a sour turn as Sam posted a photo of himself, complete with a pout and red wine, captioning: “Sometimes you just need to lay in bed with a glass of red wine and a football T shirt and listen to Joni Mitchell. It's been a sad day. Beautiful show, but sad day x”

Aww, poor guy. We totally agree, that sounds like the perfect way to mend a broken heart.

Sam also dropped hints of a break-up when he tweeted about his concert, writing: “Had a really sad day today, so thank you Toronto for making me feel so much better … You live and learn. Wise words from @JessieWare tonight x.”

Feel better soon, Sam!  



Ooh, this break-up is certainly taking some twists and turns! It has been reported that Glee actress Dianna Agron may be the reason behind Caroline Flack and Jack Street’s bitter break-up!

It has been alleged that during his time in America working with Sam Smith, that Jack has become good friends with the actress, who plays Quinn on the hit show. It is said that their friendship caused a rift between Jack and Caroline, causing them to call it quits. 

Although this is far from confirmed, it does shed a LOT more light on Caroline’s cryptic tweet to Jack last week which has since been deleted. In the tweet, Caroline wrote: “easing your guilt? fill yourself with glee, Jack.” Until now, the tweet didn’t make much sense, but with this new Glee angle, could that be what she was hinting at? 

Thankfully for Caroline, we’re sure her break-up is the furthest thing from her mind right now after her amazing win on Strictly Come Dancing this weekend!



Mean Girls star Daniel Franzese has made a parody of Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me” and it is EPIC!

It’s called “Please Go Home” and tells the story of an awkward one night stand where the person just will not go home.

We think Damien would definitely approve of this cover – it is SO fetch!
