Australian Pop star (and song writer) Sia has been known to be quirky, especially when it comes to hiding her face which she admits is a ‘gimmick’ to keep some normalcy in her life she tells Interview Magazine. Sia can often be seen in a short blond wig, but has upped her wig game with a few different kinds of new blonde do’s.
Sia explains why she likes to wig out. “I’m trying to do this differently, for serenity. And it’s a fun game for me as well. I have nothing to lose. But of course I want to be loved. So when people say, ‘Show your face, you’re not ugly.’ I want to say, ‘I know. I’m not doing it because I think I’m ugly; I’m trying to have some control over my image. And I’m allowed to maintain some modicum of privacy. But also I would like not to be picked apart or for people to observe when I put on ten pounds or take off ten pounds or I have a hair extension out of place or my fake tan is botched.’ Most people don’t have to be under that pressure, and I’d like to be one of them. I don’t want to be followed by paparazzi. I don’t go on Twitter. Because when people say things like, I don’t know, ‘I hope you get cancer and die,’ it hurts my feelings.
By the way the interview was done by friend Kristen Wiig and did you know that Sia does not tour, doesn’t like doing promos and rarely does interviews. Love her so much…she has great music that people love and yet she won’t promote it that much. It’s all on her own term. You have to give it to her she’s unwilling to sell her soul to be famous!
