Grammys 2023: Sam Smith, Kim Petras and Entourage are red hot
Smith, a four-time Grammy winner, rocked a high-necked red blouse with a red top hat, lace veil and cane. Petras, the German pop singer who collaborated with Smith on the Grammy-nominated hit ‘Unholy,’ styled in a balloon-bottom minidress and veil.
Accompanied by celebrity drag queens Violet Chachki and Gottmik and a themed entourage, the stars took to the red carpet ahead of their Grammys performance.
“Unholy,” released last fall, made Smith the first non-binary artist and Petras the first openly transgender artist to reach No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Petras received his first-ever Grammy nomination for the hit, which is up for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.
Smith recently drew backlash from conservatives and online trolls after posting the video for their aptly named new track “I’m Not Here to Make Friends”, which topped YouTube’s trending list after its release in January.
Critics complained that Smith’s playful dancing in fabulously camp outfits was over the top and vulgar – sparking a debate about double standards for LGBTQ performers.
The artist clearly wasn’t fazed and went on to do it his way at the Grammys.
