Sam Smith terrified of flying

British pop star SAM SMITH suffers from a crippling fear of flying which threatens to hamper his international pop career. The Stay With Me singer is required to jet around the world for work, but he has a meltdown on every journey due to his phobia. Smith hopes to one day be able to afford a private jet as he is convinced traveling in a small, luxury airplane will help ease his fears. He tells Digital Spy, "I'm really scared of flying. Like, really really really scared... My main incentive now is to be so successful that I can get a private jet and sit with the pilot. I got upgraded to first class the other week, but even there I was still scared. I could be massaged for the whole flight and still think I'm going to die." Smith is now thinking about undergoing hypnotherapy to help with the phobia, adding, "I might do that actually. I've been thinking about it."
