Sam Smith has revealed the truth behind some very strange photos of him kissing his beloved – 13 Reasons Why actor Brandon Flynn. The pair were pictured snogging enthusiastically on a night out in London’s Soho earlier this year. The snaps went viral after being shared on Twitter, with many noting that his sister was standing there looking at the boys and it was quite awkward. Appearing on BBC Radio One he said: “It was a joke,” he said. “As a joke we were attacking each other!” Standing outside the shop while his sister was taking cigarettes Sam decided to joke. “I was literally liking his eyeballs. It’s horrendous [the photos]. I’m going to have to do something crazy to top it,” said the singer. So no hidden messages, just having fun together and enjoying love.
