Sia on Being Elusive: Why Does She Refuse to Show Her Face?
Despite that fact that she always hides her face in her song performances and TV interviews, the “Chandelier” singer, Sia Furler, still managed to catch the audiences’ attention at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards night. The performance was captivating as Sia, with her back to the crowd, was accompanied by “Saturday Night Live” actress Kristen Wiig and Maddie Ziegler, who is also part of “Dance Moms.”
The 39-year-old Australian singer has been asked many times on the reason/s why she refuses to show her face. Sia was good enough to answer the mind-boggling question.
Who is the woman behind the wig? Sia Kate Isobelle Furler is a singer-songwriter who lend her songwriting talents to famous pop stars such as Rhianna, Katy Perry, Beyoncé, Britney Spears, Lea Michelle, Kylie Minogue and Rita Ora. Additionally, her chart-toping songs and music videos earned her a place in the music industry. With her 25 million record sales and success, why does she prefer to hide her face?
“I don’t want to be famous, or recognizable. I don’t want to be critiqued about the way that I look on the internet,” Sia told Chris Connelly in an interview on Nightline. The singer also said that she does not want the life that the famous pop stars now have.
Since Sia has been in the music scene as early as the ’90s, Internet pictures of her without the platinum wig have been the evidence of what the singer really looked like. When her hit song “Chandelier” came out, Sia was seen to perform with her back to the audience. Vulture currently pleaded for her to show her face, but the singer still went incognito in the 2015 Grammy Awards night wearing a blunt wig, which covers most of her face. In 2013, Sia wrote “My Anti-Fame Manifesto (By Sia Furler),” for Billboard which pretty much explains her decision to hide her face in public and have a private life. This, however, did not stop the fans and paparazzi to dig and grab every chance they have to get a glimpse at the singer’s face. Recently though, Sia graced her visage without the infamous wig when she attended the “Annie.” After that, she’s back to hiding her face.
In their recent post, MailOnline showed some pictures of Sia revealing her face backstage at the Grammy Awards night.
