Sam Smith urges Australians to support same-sex marriage
Sam Smith has weighed in on Australia’s same-sex marriage debate.
The multi-platinum selling artist has urged voters to support the ‘yes’ side of the debate.
Taking to Twitter, Sam asked for Australians to “change things for the better” in the vote.
He wrote: “Can’t believe my eyes. ‘Vote No’ being written in the sky over Sydney from people against equal marriage.”
He was reacting to an anti-equal marriage display that drew ‘vote no’ in the sky earlier this week.
In a follow-up tweet he wrote: “Come on beautiful Australia…. Let’s change things for the better. LOVE LOVE LOVE is LOVE.”
Australia is currently voting in a non-binding plebiscite on same-sex marriage.
The pro-equality ‘yes’ side currently has a narrow lead, but even if Australia does back the change, it may not lead to any amendments in the law.
Sam doesn’t have plans to wed any time soon, though, after revealing his new single is about a break-up.
He says he had to be “forced” back into the studio after being dumped.

It comes as he prepares to release his first new album in three years.
The Oscar winning singer opened up to Sir Elton John: “There was a period, when making the record, that I was in a really bad place. I got dumped, which wasn’t very nice.
“Writing music about that kind of thing is normally like therapy for me, but when I got dumped this time round I just couldn’t write for about two months.
“My team had to force me to get into the studio, because I almost felt as if I didn’t want to do it any more.
“So, there were moments on there where it got a bit intense and I started to lose myself.”
