Elemental truth: Fair-skinned Brits should either avoid the sun or coat themselves in SPF 70 as thick as a heavy wool blanket. Live and learn, Sam Smith. The Grammy-winning blue-eyed soul vocalist got a nasty, nasty sunburn and posted a photo of himself in very visible misery while wearing what appears to be one of Jennifer Beals’ old Flashdance costumes. (Apparently, the ’80s are back yet again.)

Don’t feel too bad for the new face of Balenciaga. Soon after posting his lobster pic, Smith posted a photo of singer Gavin James announcing that the ginger-haired singer will tour with him, that he’d offered him some much-needed aloe vera, followed by a cryptic personal note: “You have my heart sir.” Whether Sam is just indebted to have his painful-looking burns treated with some TLC or if there’s a new romance blooming here is anyone’s guess. Or perhaps it’s both.
