Sam Smith, the Grammy-winning artist known for their soulful voice and use of they/them pronouns, has addressed a rumour that has been circulating for a few years now. The rumour making the rounds states that that they are secretly Adele in drag.
In a recent episode of The Drew Barrymore Show, Smith revealed that the rumour started because the two artists have never been seen in the same room together and their voices have some similarities when slowed down.
“Everyone seems to think that I’m Adele in drag,” Smith said. “Cause we’ve never been seen in the same room together, and if you slow down her voice it sounds maybe a bit like mine. So people think that we’re the same person and I’m just in drag right now.”
While both artists were born in London and have outstanding voices, that’s about where the similarities between Smith and Adele end. The truth is, they are two different people with their own unique talents and personalities. However, the rumour has gained more traction recently as fans have been posting videos on social media comparing the two artists’ vocal similarities.
While the rumour might seem absurd, it’s not the first time that two artists have been compared to each other. It’s not uncommon for fans to find similarities between artists and create conspiracy theories. But hopefully, this will put an end to the rumour and fans can enjoy the music of both Adele and Sam Smith without any confusion.
The idea that a well-known and successful singer like Adele would secretly be performing as another successful singer, Sam Smith, in drag is highly unlikely, but still very hilarious. Additionally, the fact that the rumour gained traction due to a perceived similarity in their vocal styles and the fact that slowing down Adele’s voice makes it sound like Smith’s is remarkable.
