Smith goes on to explain he identifies as genderqueer and non-binary, revealing, "You do not identify in a gender".

Speaking to Jameela Jamil during the premiere episode of her new "I Weigh Interviews" Instagram series, Sam said: "It's the basis of all my sadness".

Giving further context, Sam responded: 'I've always had a bit of a war in my body and my mind... When I move, when I have sex with men, it's very feminine.

"Non-binary/genderqueer is that you do not identify in a gender", Smith, who still opts for male pronouns at present, explains. You are a mixture of different things, you are your own special creation.

"In the past, if I have ever done a photo shoot with so much as a T-shirt on, I have starved myself for weeks in advance and then picked and prodded at every picture and then normally [have] taken the picture down", Smith wrote.

Smith later took to Instagram to praise his sit-down, saying that while it "took a lot for me to do this", the interview "completely changed my life".

"I think I float somewhere in between", Smith said. "I've sometimes sat there and questioned, 'Do I want a sex change?' It's something I still think about, but I don't think it is". "It's something I still think about, but I don't think it is".

Smith, 26, revealed to Jamil, 33, that he had liposuction when he was 12 years old and that he's struggled with his body image "from since I can remember".

"At the time, I think I was very happy about it", Smith recalled.

Listen to the interview below.

Overall, after starting therapy past year, Smith chose to open up so he could be a voice for gender-queer individuals as well as those with body issues. "I had liposuction. I was 12 years old".

The Grammy victor, 26, sat down with actress and activist Jameela Jamil in the extremely candid interview where he confessed that a battle between his body and mind made him sometimes "think like a woman".

These days, Smith said he's more determined than ever to be open about his insecurities because men generally tend to be more reluctant than women to talk about body image. "I'm feminine in many many ways".

He admitted that his signature suits were an attempt to hide issues with his weight.

He added: "But I don't think it is".

After going to see a doctor he was told that he had excess oestrogen in his chest which left him with breasts - that he was bullied for by his school peers - and so at just 12-years-old, he had liposuction to remove it.

"Maybe I'm not a man, maybe I'm not a woman, maybe I'm just me and maybe that's ok". "It doesn't feel manly to talk about how I feel in my body every day but that's what I'm trying to fight against".

"Yesterday I made a decision to fight the f-k back", he said.
