Sam Smith wants to feel more "human".

The 'Like I Can' hitmaker isn't worried about having his heart broken or falling in love because he thinks it is exciting to not be too over-cautious.

He said: "I find that the danger of giving too much away excites me, so I give you everything.

"'Make mistakes!' I tell myself. 'You're only 22. Fall in love with as many people as you can! Get your heart broken!' I need to go through all of this to feel human. Because my life right now, how I'm living, isn't very human."

Meanwhile, the 22-year-old singer - who recently thanked a former love interest for breaking his heart after scooping four Grammy awards - also admitted he finds writing about his love life "cathartic".

He shared: "People think that because I'm being honest and talking about pain it's sad, but to me it's empowering.

"Talking about my deepest and darkest secrets to the world makes me feel better. It's cathartic. And that's a bit f***ed up, if I'm honest. But it helps me."

And whilst he loves to use his own heartache to craft his own songs, he wants to carry it off with class and thinks others should do the same.

He added to Vogue magazine: "There is a way to share an insight into your personal life without being classless, which is what I'm trying to do.

"Let's not get our asses out, people. Let's put on a suit."
