The last few years have seen many a celebrity phone hacking, resulting in their private nude photography being circulated circulated publically and against their wishes.
Australian Musician, Sia, has managed to beat a nude picture seller at their own game by giving away the exclusive naked shots for free herself, sharing them on Twitter while also managing to plug her new album, Everyday Is Christmas.
The Tweet (which you can see on Sia's Twitter account ), “Someone is apparently trying to sell naked photos of me to my fans. Save your money, here it is for free. Everyday is Christmas!”
The Tweet included a watermark and text explaining that the photo (15 in total) would be unblurred when purchased.
Sia's real name is Sia Kate Isobelle Furler, and aside from being an amazingly talented musician/singer/songwriter, she's known for wearing for hiding under oversized faux hair and absurdly large hats.
Sia is vehement about maintaining some sense of privacy in her life and has explained previously that the costumes help with that. She's not just being a diva, there is a good reason she wants to protect her private life.
"I was a singer already for 10 or 11 years to mediocre success," she explained to James Corden on The Late Late Show earlier this year.
"I was an alcoholic and a drug addict. I sobered up, and I decided I didn't want to be an artist anymore, because I was starting to get a little bit famous and it was destabilising in some way."
She also alluded that fame destroyed her previous relationship.
“It’s kind of disappointing because we can’t do anything. I’m kind of a bit famous, I didn’t realise I’m so famous.”
All of this makes the fact someone tried to sell nude photography of the reclusive musician even more of a low blow.
Sia, you are a queen. We salute you.
