Pop star Sam Smith has won two BRIT Awards but all that he wants now is a boyfriend to call his own.

Smith won the BRIT Awards for British Breakthrough Artist and the Global Success Award, which recognises international sales achievements. The star was nominated for a total of five awards.

However, on his way into the awards ceremony, Smith was looking for something very different. Speaking to a reporter, he was asked, what he’d most like to achieve. “I’d like a boyfriend if I am honest,” he replied. “It would be great!”

Asked if he had a type, Smith joked “No not really, I’m easy.”

Smith has long joked about his yearning for a man to share his life with. When asked what could be better than winning his four Grammy awards, Smith said: “A boyfriend would be nice, but I don’t think it would top this though. Nothing. That’s the curse of the rest of my life, I think.

Of what he looks for in a man, he gestured to his awards and said: “Patience… and someone who can clean these every day for me.

“I do not know what I’m looking for, and the moment I start looking it’s not going to come my way.

“I’m just looking for some crazy love story.”

Smith last week revealed the new video for his song ‘Lay Me Down’ which he has dedicated to the hope that “one day gay men and women and trans men and women all over the world will be able to get married.”

In the video, Smith, who recently split up with Jonathan Zeizel two weeks after going public with their relationship, gets married in a church setting as dozens look on.

Last month he found himself in the sights of Howard Stern, who said he looks “fat”, “ugly”, and “looks gay”.

Speaking to Rolling Stone last week, Smith said he will “never” play a gig in Russia – because of the country’s anti-gay laws.
