Sia: “I’m just trying to work out a way to be a singer and to create cool content. I’m willing to do that as an entertainer. But I’m not willing to give up my actual self. And the way the system is built up, there’ll be a backlash soon. Just recently some people published 11 photos of Sia’s face. It’s a bummer for me because it’s going to elevate my profile and make me more recognizable. But I don’t look the same as I did when I used to have my photo taken. So I’m just trying to be one step removed. Music is for your ears, not your eyes, right? But film is for your eyes, and I would like to give you something. I want you to be entertained. I want you to get the full package. I’d just rather it not center around whether or not I have cellulite.”
