Sam Smith posts photo using aging filter and asks: ‘Grandpa or Grandma?’

Sam Smith just posted a photo of what he might look like in 60 years.

The Stay With Me singer caught wind of the viral craze taking over social media at the moment — the FaceApp filter. It ages any photo of users by adding wrinkles and white hair.

27-year-old Smith used the filter and then posted it to social media today (16 July). Smith is sporting a beard and wearing large love heart diamond earrings.

‘Grandpa or Grandma?’ he wrote in the caption to the photo. ‘I’ll take both.’

He also used the emoji of the painted finger nails.

Singer Lauren Jauregui replied: ‘Cute as hell’.

While others branded him ‘GLAMpa’ and ‘sugar daddy’.

Sam Smith comes out as non-binary genderqueer

Sam Smith came out as non-binary genderqueer in March this year, revealing he’s comfortable still using male pronouns.

Speaking to The Good Place actor Jameela Jamil, Smith spoke about his body issues in the show I Weigh.

He outlined the struggles he went through and said he came out as gay at age 10, but then struggled with issues of gender for years.

Smith said he is now embracing a ‘non-binary genderqueer’ identity.

When asked what he meant by those terms, Smith said ‘you do not identify in a gender’.

‘You are a mixture of all these different things. You are your own special creation,’ he said.

‘That is how I take it. I am not male or female. I think I float somewhere in between — somewhat on the spectrum.’

Sam Smith also recently marched in Pride in London, calling it the most ‘proud to be queer’ in his life.
