If you listen to the radio, you know who Sia is. Whether its from her latest hit, “Cheap Thrills” or the smash hit “Chandelier”. Sia has also made news because she chooses to remain somewhat anonymous and not show her face to the public. However, at a recent concert and a big gust of wind, her face was very publicly revealed. Today, I’m going to share with you some other things you should know about Sia.
She is a seasoned professional
Sia has written more than 70 songs for mainstream artists. These include songs for Britney Spears, Katy Perry, Beyonce and more. When asked about her writing process, the artist states that many of the songs just come to her. She is known for writing songs extremely quickly – sometimes in less than 30 minutes. Later in this article, you’ll read about how she has been in this industry for more than two decades.
Privacy is something she values very much
If the wig wasn’t enough of a clue, you can look to other parts of Sia’s life to see how she holds privacy dear to her. She has chosen not to do on a tour of her own because of it. She also has refused to star in her own music videos. Why so secretive? Sia states that she just wants to live a normal life and not be judged based on her appearance.
She has been revealed before
Despite the point above, believe it or not, this is not the first time Sia has been seen. She has actually been releasing albums since 1997. You can see her face on one of her earlier album covers here. When her career really took off in the late 200os, she began to hide her identity. Now, it seems that slowly, she may return back to her old ways and show her face again.
She is just like us – seriously
Okay, this one is cliche but it is true! Remember when Maddie from Dance Moms appeared in Sia’s videos? It is because she is a fan of that show. She also loves the television show Survivor on CBS. This past season, she even appeared on stage at the shows’ live finale. Turns out that even brilliant musicians can have a love for reality shows.
I hope that I’ve satisfied some of your curiosity about Sia! Though her identity was recently shown publicly, she will always remain a bit of a mystery. For more coverage on music, theater, and more, keep coming back to our blog.
