Smith publicly came out just before he launched his album, "In The Lonely Hour" -- but, he did struggle with the decision to break the news.
"I kind of just felt like I needed to mention it before I released the record so people knew what it was about. And it felt like a brave thing to do as well I wanted to do it before because if I did it afterwards people probably would have thought I was lying just to sell records," he tells Ellen in the sneak peek.
While the "I'm Not the Only One" singer rarely comments on his sexuality, he has no shame about his identity.
"I'm a singer and a song writer. I get upset sometimes because I don't talk about it too much. People say, 'he doesn't want to be a spokesperson for the gay community.' I do, of course I do, but I want to be a spokesperson for everyone. Ya know straight people, gay people, bisexual. I don't want it to be limited," he confesses.
