In an interview on Andy Cohen’s Sirius XM radio show Radio Andy, non-binary singer Sam Smith admitted their love of amyl nitrate, saying “I can completely confirm – I love poppers. I love poppers. I’ve been ashamed to say that, but I have so much fun when I do poppers.”
Well, OK then! Good to know!
The subject came up after The Sun reported back in December that Smith, X-Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger, and ex-rugby star Thom Evans were spotted sniffing poppers at the London gay bar Freedom. Apparently, a fellow clubgoer spotted the group and later posted online about the events.
“Last night was so weird,” the clubgoer wrote. “I ended up caught between Nicole Scherzinger and her fit rugby boyfriend and Sam Smith.” The source said that Scherzinger’s pals started “offering their poppers around” and that he “got to sniff the same bottle that Nicole used.”
When later asked about it, Smith said they were not endorsing their use by their fans.
“Some people would look at that and think that it’s not good,” they said in the interview. “And I’m not trying to endorse that because I know they’re not good for you. But booze isn’t good for you as well, right? But it’s not the same thing, it’s not the same thing.”
