Sam Smith posted a photo of themself topless on a boat, and let’s just say it’s a good job they were surrounded by water because people be out here thirstin’.

The signer shared a message of body positivity on Instagram, captioning the picture: “Feels so good to have my top off on holiday. Spent all my life hiding my body from the sun. The last year my skin has been soaking in that LIGHT.”

They urged followers not to let “anyone or anything stop you from feeling that kiss from above, you beautiful humans”.

Fans hailed Smith as both “an inspiration” and “fine AF”.

“Have my kids,” wrote one. Another helpfully suggested that they “soak in all that D babe”.

For several, the only appropriate response was: “🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥.”

Rocketman star Taron Egerton wrote: “You look gorgeous,” while Chilling Adventures of Sabrina actor Kiernan Shipka summed up all of our feelings with a simple: “YES.”

After garnering more than one million likes Smith shared a second version of the photo, doctored by illustrator Koo Koo, which recast them as The Little Mermaid‘s iconic queer villain Ursula.

So tomorrow is 2020. Wow. I find Times like these are this crazy mix of happy and sad, where we look back at the last 10 years and think of all we’ve been through in our lives. Seeing you all post throwback photos and moments made me message my friend from school and ask if she had any photos from 10 years ago when I was 17. And I found this ICONIC picture above Hahahaha. This picture made me emotional because the confidence and freedom I’ve felt the last year is EVERYTHING I had those 10 years ago. This to me is a beautiful and important reminder that as we get older, life can get tough. As growing adults we get launched into this sometimes cruel and heartless world. And through that we sometimes feel like we lose ourselves and that spark we once had. But the truth is, if we fight on, do the work, keep singing, dancing and loving… we will be ok. The kid in this picture went to school everyday in their non binary gloriousness and ignored every stare or verbal taunt that was thrown their way. That kid never left. They just had some hardcore feelings to feel. So to all you beautiful humans on the last day of 2019, my only advice after my very short time on this earth is… FEEL IT ALL!!!! And celebrate your sexy selves. I’m raising a spliff and a glass of wine to the sky for you all ❤ p.s. that’s a fake Louis V #cozimtherealthing

Two weeks earlier, Smith shared a message of encouragement for those who face body image issues over the festive period.

“This time of the year always triggers tricky body issues with me,” they wrote.

“I love me some mince pies and all the trimmings, and I always find I gain a bit of weight during this time. I’m writing this out to you all, but also writing this for myself.

“Let’s make sure we remind our bodies during this time that no matter what weight we are, we are deserving of love and acceptance. Let’s love our fluctuating bodies.”
