Sia is getting into the Christmas spirit early by handing out presents with a “mature” rating.
The independent-minded Australian singer and songwriter apparently became the unwanted target a voyeur who snapped her in the buff and tried selling the photos. So she took control the situation: she shared one the pictures with her millions followers, for nothing.
Sia tweeted out a grainy nude picture with the caption, “Someone is apparently trying to sell naked photos me to my fans. Save your money, here it is for free. Everyday is Christmas!”
The subject’s face is obscured in the photo — nothing unusual for Sia — so it’s impossible to tell whether it's genuine or a clever marketing ploy for her forthcoming Christmas-themed album, Santa’s Coming For Us, due out Nov. 17.
What we do know is that Sia doesn’t traipse the well-beaten path. The award-winning artist and Monkey Puzzle-owner pulled f a spectacularly counter-intuitive maneuver by climbing to the top while shunning the spotlight. Along with Daft Punk, she’s created an artform out concealing her identify.
She'll support her new album release with a three-date stadium tour Australasia, starting Nov. 30 at Melbourne’s AAMI Park and featuring an all-female bill.
