Sia graced us with her first Aussie TV performance in nearly five years on Sunrise this morning, revealing that she wears OTT wigs and masks because paparazzi make her feel like “prey”.
Following her performances of “Chandelier” and “Big Girls Cry” (below), where she wore an oversized blonde wig and a sparkly mask-style headpiece respectively, the Australian singer-songwriter asked presenter Samantha Armytage, “Would you like to spend your life feeling like prey? Probably not.”
Further explaining why she always covers her face, Sia said, “It’s just wanting to have a regular life, just like a regular person, and still be able to make music and sing…but without having to sacrifice just having a regular life, that’s all.”
It makes perfect sense, but there was an awkward moment when Samantha handed Sia the microphone which she couldn’t seem to see or find thanks to the lengthy bangs on her wig. “I can’t see a thing,” she laughed. “I look forward to looking deeply into your eyes later when we’re not being filmed.”
We’re not going to lie, we’ve seen Sia’s stunning face and we wish it came out more often. But we’re stoked that she covered up in all Australian designers this morning, wearing Josh Goot, Carla Zampatti and Romance Was Born’s Cooee Couture range straight from the recent MBFWA runway for her performances.
