Sam Smith Soothes Breakup Blues With Joni Mitchell & Wine

It turns out that Jonathan Zeizel was not the (only) one for Sam Smith. The British crooner told concert-goers in Toronto that he and his model boyfriend had just split after less than a month of dating.
Smith announced the breakup as he introduced his single "Like I Can." He and Zeizel met on the video shoot for the song.

"This song is very special for me today," he told fans, according to the BBC. "It's because I've actually had to do a very similar thing today with someone I've been seeing."
It's all good, though, because Smith — famed for his lovelorn tunes — knows just the thing for curing heartbreak: Joni Mitchell and copious amounts of Olivia Pope's favorite drink.

"Sometimes you just need to lay in bed with a glass of red wine and a football T shirt and listen to Joni Mitchell," the singer captioned a fairly mopey selfie on Instagram after his concert. "It's been a sad day. Beautiful show, but sad day x."
Babe. We're coming right over with some Phish Food and a DVD of Bridget Jones's Diary.
