Sia makes paparazzi butt of the joke by posting nude picture herself

Sia Furler, the notoriously private Australian singer and songwriter, has reacted to an apparent attempt to sell naked pictures of her – by publishing the image herself on Twitter.

The singer, who regularly obscures her face with masks, wigs or even a paper bag when in public, posted the picture in a cheerful tweet that read: “Someone is apparently trying to sell naked photos of me to my fans. Save your money, here it is for free. Every day is Christmas!” Sia has a Christmas album coming out soon.

The post suggested that a picture agency was attempting to sell 15 images of the singer, including at least one of her nude. It’s not clear to whom the photos were being offered, and whether agency FameFlyNet, whose watermark was in the photo, was the would-be seller. The Guardian has approached the company for comment.

Sia’s reacted to the tweet with glee.

Although she is one of the most successful songwriters in the world, writing hits for Rihanna, Beyoncé, Katy Perry and Adele and selling millions of her own records, Sia has always been fiercely protective of her privacy.

Sia says she thought about ending her life in 2010, and even wrote a suicide note, but she has since enrolled in a recovery programme and is now feeling much more positive.

 

In a series of recent clips and televised performances, she enlisted child dancer Maddie Ziegler to appear as a surrogate of sorts.

And in 2013, she perplexed fans by appearing in a behind-the-scenes video with a bunch of bananas superimposed across her face.

“If anyone besides famous people knew what it was like to be a famous person, they would never want to be famous,” she wrote in a piece for Billboard called My Anti-Fame Manifesto.
