Sam Smith has finally responded to a bizarre conspiracy theory that they are secretly Adele “in drag.” In a new interview, the “I’m Not the Only One” hitmaker, who uses they/them pronouns, confronted the wild rumors.

In the Monday, January 23 episode of “The Drew Barrymore Show“, the 30-year-old crooner said, “Everyone seems to think that I’m Adele in drag. ‘Cause we’ve never been seen in the same room together, and if you slow down her voice it sounds maybe a bit like mine.”

“So people think that we’re the same person,” Sam continued. The Grammy-winning musician went on to joke, “and I’m just in drag right now,” prompting the live audience to laugh with them.

Meanwhile, some social media users pointed out that Sam does sound like the “Easy On Me” songstress. “Ok but seriously someone tested the similarity.. if you take his music and speed it up it’s Adele… if you slow it down it’s Sam. And vise Versa!” one person remarked. Another added, “yeah i want to see. Sam smith and adele together. to prove they’re different.”

Many found it pretty hilarious too. “Now THAT is funny!!! And I love them both,” one Instagram user commented on the show’s post. Someone else chimed in, “That is indeed crazy lol [laughing with tears emojis].”

The absurd conspiracy theory that Sam might be moonlighting as Adele has actually been circulating for the past few years but it recently drummed up more traction after fans began posting videos comparing the two artists’ vocal similarities on social media.

The clarification came ahead of the release of Sam’s fourth studio album, “Gloria”. Of the album, the “Stay With Me” singer said that it is their most authentic yet after the star publicly announced their gender identity as non-binary in 2019.

“I’ve always been authentic. I just think asking a 24-year-old to be their 100% self in front of 20,000 people was never going to happen,” Sam explained. “I showed 70% of who I was then and a lot of that has to do with me being gay. As I got older, though, I realized there’s no shame. I wasn’t being inauthentic — you just keep some things to yourself until you’re ready.”
