Sia posted a nude photo of herself on her own social media accounts after someone tried selling naked photos of the “Chandelier” singer.
“Someone is apparently trying to sell naked photos of me to my fans. Save your money, here it is for free,” tweeted the Grammy nominee singer on Monday 6, alongside a paparazzi picture of herself standing on a balcony naked. “Everyday is Christmas!”
“Everyday Is Christmas” is not only an expression of course, it also refers to the title of Sia’s upcoming holiday album, which features 10 new songs and it will debut on November 17.
The photo was watermarked with a text that read “Client Preview”. The “Cheap Thrills” singer also showed a text message of the seller’s offer: “If you make the purchase it will be unblurred and you will receive and [sic] additional 14 images.”
The singer-songwriter’s daring tweet received a lot of support from other celebrities as well as her fans. “You can Sia ass before you Sia face,” tweeted YouTube personality Kingsley, making a reference to Sia’s decision to cover her face using her now-iconic elaborate wigs. Meanwhile, Pentatonix singer Scott Hoying also responded saying, “ICONIC.”
Unfortunately, this is not the first time a celebrity’s personal photos have been up for sale or leaked online. In 2014, the Apple and Google accounts of major A-listers were hacked and a bunch of naked images were illegally released on the internet. Jennifer Lawrence, who was one of the main victims, said in an interview at the time, “Just because I’m a public figure, just because I’m an actress, does not mean that I asked for this. … It is a sex crime. It is a sexual violation.”
All of this commotion occurs in what has been a busy year for Sia. In September, Zayn Malik released his single “Dusk Till Dawn,” which featured her vocals. She also released the song “Free Me” back in June and teamed up with Oscar winner Julianne Moore and actress Zoe Saldana to promote HIV awareness and raise funds for #endHIV.
