Sam Smith Opens Up About His Alter Ego



Sam Smith is the latest musician to pull back the curtain on his life for Apple Music — and he’s introducing the world to his female alter ego “Karamel.”

“What people don’t know is Karamel’s actually sold 24 million records in America from her first album, Karamel with a K,” Smith joked in a clip of the documentary.  On Sunday, Smith opened up his gender identity and revealed he doesn’t consider himself a cisgender man.  “I don’t know what the title would be, but I feel just as much woman as I am man,” he told the U.K. Sunday Times.

He also revealed that he likes dressing in drag and shopping at the famed House of Priscilla whenever he’s in Sydney, Australia. “Oh, my god, I just buy everything — heels, dresses,” he said. “We have a great time.”

The 25-year-old “Too Good at Goodbyes” singer will participate in the streaming music platform’s acclaimed short film series On the Record, following in the footsteps of a list of stars like Pink and Niall Horan who have let cameras film them as they record and prep their new albums.

Smith’s new album, Thrill of It All, comes 3 years after his debut record, In the Lonely Hour, catapulted him into stardom (in part on the power of the number 1 single “Stay With Me”).  “I think when people listen to my music they think I just, like, lay at home and cry all the time,” Smith added in the Apple clip. “But I really know how to have a good time. I’m very proud of that.”

In the time between records, Smith has lived enough life to fill multiple documentaries. He picked up four Grammys, had a dramatic weight loss, underwent vocal cord surgery and appears to have started a relationship with rumored boyfriend Brandon Flynn.  “I went through like this vortex, came out, I feel like I’ve rebuilt myself as an even stronger thing,” Smith said of the years in the trailer to On the Record. “And then I’m just going to go into the vortex again.”  “I wasn’t trying to make a big pop record when I made this album, I was just trying to make something personal and like a diary,” he continued. “It’s like you’re all buckling up for a ride on a rollercoaster. It’s either going to be so scary and it’s going to last forever or it’s going to be quick and thrilling.”

In addition to rare, stripped-down performances, the On the Record will also feature interviews and insight from Timbaland, Pooh Bear, and longtime creative partner Jimmy Napes. On The Record: Sam Smith – The Thrill Of It All premieres Nov. 3, the same day as The Thrill of It All drops.

Apple Music will also host a special one-of-a-kind event for fans that day where Smith will be performing the album live for the first time at a yet-to-be-disclosed location in London. Fans all around the world unable to make it to London will be able to livestream the show exclusively on Apple Music.

Black Teenager Attacked by Corrections Deputy in Florida, Investigation Underway



A Florida corrections deputy has been placed on leave after going on the attack against a 17-year-old at a juvenile center … and it’s all on video.

The teenager, Terrance Devon Reed III, was taken to the hospital after the violent altercation with Sarasota County Deputy Neil Pizzo last week. The surveillance footage shows Reed sitting on a bench with his arms tucked in his shirt when Pizzo marches toward him.

As Reed stands up and takes his arms out, the deputy immediately goes for his throat. A struggle ensues before Pizzo throws Reed to the ground, but at no point does the teenager appear to fight back.

Another deputy jumps in to try to wrangle Reed’s feet, and that’s when Pizzo strikes the teen on the back of the head multiple times. Reed’s then cuffed and helped to his feet … but not before suffering abrasions to his head.

The altercation reportedly began after Reed — who was previously arrested and charged with contempt of court, probation violations and cocaine possession — became uncooperative in a police lineup.

That, of course, doesn’t justify the violence by the deputy, and Sheriff Tom Knight says he’s disappointed in what he saw and Pizzo’s failure to de-escalate the situation.

Knight says he placed the deputy on administrative duty while an internal investigation is conducted.

Tamar Braxton Boyfriend Files A Restraining Order Indicating Domestic



Tamar Braxton boyfriend is running to court asking for protection against her in what he describes as a domestic violence situation.

The singer’s BF, David Adefeso, filed for a restraining order Tuesday in L.A. seeking to prevent Domestic Violence and he’s asking a judge to grant him one against Tamar. For now, it’s unclear what he’s alleging she might’ve done.

It doesn’t look like the court has approved his request just yet  

At any rate, it’s another sign that things have been volatile lately in her life — especially as it pertains to David. Remember, he’s the one who called 911 not too long ago saying Tamar was threatening to kill herself. He also mentioned her WeTV beef to cops at the time.

Also keep in mind … family sources connected to Tamar have told us they believe she’s changed since getting with him — claiming her mood seems to align with his. We’ve also been told that David has come off as controlling in Tamar’s reality show, and that he’s been quite involved in her business decisions of late.

This continues to be a developing story…..

Bodies of US Couple Found at Bottom of Well in Mexico



The bodies of a missing US couple have been found at the bottom of a well in Mexico.

Ian Hirschsohn, 78 and his 73-year-old wife Kathy Harvey had been missing since August 31, when they were supposed to return home to San Diego from a trip across the border.

Their abandoned car was found in Ensenada, just 90 minutes from the US border, last week.

Investigators then made the grim discovery on Thursday in an unpopulated area just south of the tourist hotspot.

The bodies were recovered over the weekend; San Diego police confirmed their identities, CBS8 reported.

Family members said the couple had been staying at a rented house in El Socorrito, about 200 miles south of the border, a town they frequented over the past 35 years.

Kathy texted her son Robert on August 28 to say they were going to either explore a gold mine or visit a beach; however the family lost contact with them on August 31.

After reporting them missing, the Consulate General in Tijuana finally informed the family the couple’s Toyota Land Cruiser had been found in Ensenada.

“She was really enjoying retirement and had multiple groups of friends,” Robert told the site. “She loved walking and traveling.  She had a huge bucket list of where she wanted to go.”

An investigation is now underway. The cause of deaths has not been revealed, nor has a motive, but investigators suspect foul play.
