LEAK­ING YOUR own nudes is gen­er­ally re­served for struc­tured re­al­ity stars and Dappy, whose ‘tri­pod’ pic still pop­u­lates the darker re­cesses of our night­mares (Sorry, Dappy. Also, tidy your room for God’s sake). So, we were more than a lit­tle con­fused when head­lines an­nounced that Sia had done just that. Af­ter all, de­spite be­ing one of the world’s most suc­cess­ful song­writ­ers, writ­ing hits for Ri­hanna, Bey­oncé, Adele and oth­ers when she’s not busy shift­ing mil­lions of her own records – she’s renowned for be­ing one of the A-list’s most pri­vate stars. She ob­scures her face with masks and wigs and doesn’t even ap­pear in her own mu­sic videos, so how did she end up pub­lish­ing a naked pic­ture of her­self on Twit­ter? Her sur­pris­ing move came af­ter a pic­ture agency ap­par­ently shopped 15 long lens images to the high­est bid­der. In re­sponse, Sia posted one of the pic­tures her­self, cap­tion­ing it, ‘Some­one is ap­par­ently try­ing to sell naked photos of me to my fans. Save your money, here it is for free.’ The best bit? Her cheery sign-off: ‘Ev­ery­day is Christ­mas’, which just hap­pens to be the ti­tle of her forth­com­ing al­bum. Neu­tral­is­ing the threat of an un­scrupu­lous pa­parazzo while ca­su­ally promo-ing your new record? What. A. Woman.

Now you Sia… the post on her Twit­ter ac­count
