Watch: Ellen DeGeneres Scares Sam Smith Twice in Under a Minute
Sam Smith ain’t afraid of no ghosts—or so he thought.
During an look on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Tuesday, the “Too Good at Goodbyes” singer revealed he lives in a haunted home in Hampstead. “I feel like I’m quite in touch with this stuff. I think there are ghosts everywhere. But my house is like 300 years old; it used to be a school. And I just hear crazy, crazy stuff. My sister, at night, she feels like someone’s staring at her when she sleeps. It’s weird. But I feel quite friendly with them. I have a good relationship with the ghosts. Sometimes at night I get up and I’m just like, ‘Leave me alone.’ And they do!” he insisted. “I feel like [they’ll listen] if you just talk to them, like, ‘Please! I just need to sleep!’”
Ellen DeGeneres requested, “Nothing like that scares you at all?” As a individual in a ghost costume crept up behind Smith, DeGeneres continued to prod her visitor. “You’re in a house and there’s somebody right next to you, staring at you, and nothing in you is frightened?” she requested Smith.
“Not really,” the 25-year-old singer replied. But simply seconds later, he yelped after he was ambushed by a employees member dressed in a ghost costume. “Oh, God!” he yelled. “Oh, my God!”
After Smith regained is composure, he admitted he’d anticipated DeGeneres would possibly prank him through the present. “I thought it was going to come out of this,” he mentioned, pointing to her espresso desk. “I was waiting for it to come out of this.” Just then, one other individual did bounce out and scare him. “F–k! Oh, my God! My heart!” Smith shouted. “I am not singing again! Oh, my God!”
During the interview, Smith confirmed he’s not single, “which is crazy.” Though he didn’t point out his boyfriend Brandon Flynn by title, he admitted, “It’s weird bringing out an album and not being single, ’cause when I brought [my debut album]In the Lonely Hour, I was so lonely. But now I’m singing songs about another guy, and I’m quite happy, so it’s quite weird.”
