Singer Sam Smith has said that he hit Sydney’s gay bars very hard on a recent holiday to Australia.
“Oh my god, I had some mad nights in some gay bars in Sydney,” Sam told talk show host Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show.
“I had one really bad night where I, like, puked at the bar because I was so drunk.
“I did a shot of tequila and went [halfway down my throat] and I just puked in my hand.
“That was a great night! Great night!”
Sam spent much of the Christmas and New Year’s break in Sydney with his partner, actor Brandon Flynn.
He told Jimmy Fallon whenever he holidays here he typically “eats a lot of cheese, drinks a lot of alcohol” and gets very burnt in the Australian sun.
The British singer-songwriter previously revealed that he wrote the song “Him” – a heartfelt song that tells the coming-out story from a boy to his father – the morning after a night out at Sydney gay bar Stonewall.
“I remember being inspired and wanting to write a song called ‘Him’ and I actually wrote it in the shower,” he explained last year.
“It’s just what came out of me, there was a bit of anger when I was writing those lyrics. People will take different things from that song.
“I wouldn’t say I’m religious, I’m more of a spiritual person. I went to Catholic school all my life. There’s parts of every religion I agree with and parts of every religion I disagree with.”
Sam is returning to Australia for a national tour later this year, with concerts in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Perth in November.
