He’s been steadily slimming down over the past year after overhauling his diet. However, fans of Sam Smith fear the singer may have lost too much weight after he posted a photo of himself looking slim on his Instagram account. Currently in California, the 23-year-old posted a photo of himself in a striped T-shirt on the balcony of an apartment block.
With Sam showing more facial hair than usual, a host of fans claimed he was ‘unrecognisable’ compared to his formerly portly frame when he was first on the scene in 2014. The Oscar-nominated star’s Instagram image was full of comments on his weight loss, with a mix of worries or praise by his followers.
One fan wrote: ‘This doesn’t even look like him!’
Another asked: ‘Why did Sam Smith get so skinny? The hell happened (sic).’
Some fans even expressed unsubstantiated fears that he would lose his singing voice now his waistline was slimmer.
A devotee tweeted: ‘Now that Sam Smith skinny he’s not gonna have his soulful fat voice anymore.’ However, some thought he looked better following his 3st weight loss, writing: ‘Don’t get all the fuss, poor fella is looking slimmer yes but he’s not exactly on his death bed is he? ‘As long as Sam is happy and healthy with himself that’s what counts.xxx Don’t let it all get to you Sam
