British soul singer and songwriter Sam Smith is no fan of dating/hook-up apps like Grindr. In a new interview, Smith, who recently revealed he has never been in a relationship, calls for the end of all dating apps.
He said: “No offence to people who go on Tinder but I just feel like it’s ruining romance I really do. We’re losing the art of conversation and being able to go and speak to people and you’re swiping people.
“From my experience the most beautiful people in my life that I’ve been on dates with are the dumbest so why would I swipe people who are unattractive when I could fall in love with them. Stop Tinder and Grinder.” Adding: “I’ve been on a couple of dates. I’m not in the same country for long enough to go on dates but the one’s I have had have been good. I’m good at dates. I used to get really nervous but now I’m better. There is one particular guy that I’ve been on a few dates with. I like him but who knows!”
Sam Smith will be performing at this years MTV Video Music Awards. The annual ceremony is set to take place at the Forum in Inglewood, California on August 24th, with Usher, 5 Seconds of Summer, Ariana Grande booked to perform.
