Playing Sam Smith Reveals How Fame Makes Dating Harder: You 'Don't Know People's Intentions'

While Sam Smith is at the top of his game, the four-time GRAMMY winner says he's planning on taking a break from music.

Following a massive publicity push surrounding his single "Writing's On the Wall," which serves as the theme song for the upcoming James Bond film Spectre, the 23-year-old singer revealed he wants to take some time to focus on his personal and romantic life.

Speaking with ET at a press junket promoting Spectre, Smith opened up about his perfect date, and how his idea has changed with age and experience.

"Before I'd think I'd want it to be more romantic, but I just want to hang out now," Smith shared. "That's kind of it, just hang out."

However the pop star admitted that being famous can making dating more difficult because "you maybe don't know people's intentions."

"At the same time I have never had a boyfriend in my life," Smith said. "So I don't know any different. So that's kind of a blessing I guess."

The singer was definitely blessed when he was chosen to write and record the theme for the latest installment in the iconic 007 franchise.

"It's unbelievable," Smith gushed. "You can't go up from here. In my life, right now, you really can't. I'm not saying it's all going to go down, but it's amazing."

Despite his excitement, Smith said he recognizes the challenges performing the song can pose -- especially considering his recent vocal cord surgery and the track's high-octave range.

"I actually wrote this before the vocal operation," Smith shared. "But I mean it's very challenging to sing. I'm lucky I don't have to sing it too many times."

Spectre hits theaters Nov. 6.
