Washington D.C., March 2(ANI): Sam Smith has said goodbye, for a while, to his 16 million Twitter followers as he is taking a break from the social world, following his Oscar win.
The 23-year-old singer took to his Twitter handle and wrote, “I’m logging off for a while. Some Martinis shaken not stirred are definitely in order,” reports Us magazine.
This logging off comes after a short Twitter rant that Smith had with the acclaimed screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, who is engaged to Olympian Tom Daley.
The issue became a hype, when Smith called himself the first open gay to get an Oscar, but Black slammed him by saying that the crooner won an Oscar for best original screenplay for ‘Milk back’ in 2009.
Bofore apologising, Smith said, “So hungover. genuinely feels like a dream. Second openly gay man to win an oscar or third or fourth or 100th, It wasn’t my point . My point was to shine some light on the LGBT community who i love so dearly. . Apologies for the mix up @DLanceBlack I’ll be sure to check out your films now x Belated Congrats on the Oscar x.” (ANI)
