Sam Smith was misgendered by Good Morning Britain again, but the real crime is Sam's fashion sense
Sam Smith has had a rough few weeks, from their Grammys performance failing to woo the Church of Satan, getting mocked for wearing a latex balloon, and now, being misgendered.
Before we get to the misgendering...seriously, what is this. Someone please explain. I need answers.

Anywho, Smith was tragically misgendered today by Good Morning Britain's Ranvir Singh. Singh was interviewing the designer behind the latex, ahem, masterpiece, Harri. (Fun fact: Harri's full name is actually Harikrishnan Keezhathil Surendran Pilla. This has no relevance to the story, I just felt compelled to share. Carry on.)
Singh referred to the nonbinary artist as "he" when she asked, "'How did he get in it? Who designed it? And why did he choose -"
She then realized her fatal error, and quickly corrected herself: "They! Why did they choose it?"

I was not aware Sam Smith identified as nonbinary until this moment, so I must confess that I, too, have misgendered them. I extend my sincerest apologies to them and their balloon designer.
Regarding the balloon suit, designer Harri said he had only four days to make it for this past weekend's BRIT awards. He also said he got the inspiration by imagining how distorted his body must look from his dog's perspective. Which makes you wonder what Harri is feeding his dog. One would think a dog would just see a human at an angle, not as a gigantic distorted latex monster. If so, it's a miracle they love humans so much.
\u201c'I started thinking about things from my dogs point of view.'\n\nIt was the talking point of the Brits - Sam Smith's inflatable jumpsuit. @RobbieRinder & @ranvir01 speak to Harri, the designer of the outfit.\u201d— Good Morning Britain (@Good Morning Britain) 1676276212
To add flame to the fire, this was not the first time Smith was misgendered on Good Morning Britain. In January, another host mistakenly referred to them as a "he" when discussing their highly sexual music video, "I'm Not Here to Make Friends." There were no latex suits in that video, but Smith did don a corset, suspenders, and nipple tassels.
I must say, that is a very fitting outfit for the song title. I would not assume someone wearing nipple tassels in public was interested in making friends. And I think that's a safe bet.
