Sam Smith dances with joy during first pub outing after lockdown

Sam Smith was the picture of absolute joy as they celebrated their first night out after lockdown as pubs reopened across the country on Super Saturday. 

The Dancing With a Stranger singer was in the thick of the boozy action as they headed to a pub in Soho, London with a group of friends. 

They were lucky enough to grab a table outside with Sam, 28, and their pals enjoying several beers while seated. The merry celebrations continued as the pop star smoked a cigarette and threw their hands in the air joyfully while dancing in the street. 

It’s no surprise Sam was thrilled to get out of the house and let loose as lockdown began to take a toll on them. 

The musician shared their ‘meltdown’ on social media back in March while growing frustrated with being cooped up at home during the coronavirus pandemic. 

Sam posted photos of themself looking pretty irked and overwhelmed, alongside the caption: ‘Stages of a quarantine meltdown.’ 

However, the Too Good At Goodbyes singer received backlash for complaining about self-isolation despite their privileged position. 

During an interview with Heart Breakfast, Sam defended themself and explained: ‘It wasn’t a [meltdown]. 

‘It was more – it was six weeks ago I posted a picture and everyone else was posting pictures, it was probably bad timing of me, but I use my social media as if it’s just my friends on it. 

‘I posted with my humour and stuff, but it just didn’t get picked up very well, but I didn’t mean any malice by it at all. Yeah, you know me, I’m always sharing all of my feelings all the time and trying to be as human as possible but sometimes maybe people can read it wrongly but that wasn’t really meaning it in a malicious or nasty way, I was just trying to be myself.’ 

Critics compared Sam’s ‘meltdown’ to the heroics of elderly Colonel Tom Moore, who raised over £20 million for the NHS. 

Responding to the criticism, the singer told fans: ‘I’ve been a bit down today because it’s feeling real. 

‘It’s been quite a day coming to terms with that. ‘I’m running out of things to do. I think the more you sleep, the more tired I am because I’m absolutely shattered. I can’t complain right now. I’ve got my health and my family.’
