Lewis Capaldi often comes across as quite different from what one would imagine a pop star to be: modest, sometimes slightly nervous at concerts, a bit plump. In addition, Capaldi has Tourette's syndrome. Nevertheless, the 26-year-old landed a number one hit with his song "Someone You Loved" in the United Kingdom and in the USA, and he is also becoming increasingly well-known and popular in Germany.
But while fame changes many people, the Scot remains comfortable in his own skin - literally. Because apparently he has no plans to work on his character. "I exist as I am," Capaldi said in an interview with the "Independent". "People can identify with how I look." Although he weighs a little more than he would like, the singer will probably not spend too much time in the gym in the future.
"I have no desire to look chiseled," he explained in the interview. Having a six-pack sounds "boring and time-consuming" to him, an attitude I think many men with Dadbod can relate to, even though they may secretly want a more defined physique. At celebrity parties, however, he often has the feeling that he doesn't fit into the environment.
For Lewis Capaldi, however, it is about more than his own body awareness. It is important to him to make a public statement with his character. "I think it's important that there are people like me and Lizzo, to show people that you don't have to be skinny or built like a brick house to be successful," he says. The American singer also stands by her curvy figure.
Lewis Capaldi will release his second album Broken by Desire to Be Heavenly Sent in May. Concerts in Munich and Stuttgart have been announced for autumn, but they are already sold out.
