Will Young happy for Sam Smith: 'It's double brilliant that he's gay'
The Brit is quoted online as saying that it is "fantastic" an artist like the 'Stay With Me' man has recorded the next James Bond theme 'Writing's On The Wall'.
He adds that it is extra special to see Smith do well because he is an openly gay musician.
Young said: "Isn't it amazing [that Smith is doing the Bond theme]? That's amazing. I love great singers. If someone's doing really well, like Sam, and they're really good I love it, I love their success and I love the fact that they're doing great.
"It's so nice to see someone who is a brilliant singer, and he's doing great, and he's gay, so it's like double brilliant!"
Smith is due to unveil the Spectre theme song on Friday (September 25).
