Singer Sia just proved two can definitely play the game when she shared her own nude image before someone could profit from it.
When she learned that someone was trying to sell a nude paparazzo photo of her, Sia took matters in her own hands by sharing the screenshot on her own on Twitter.
“Someone is apparently trying to sell naked photos of me to my fans. Save your money, here it is for free. Everyday is Christmas!” she posted.
Adding “Everyday is Christmas” is a nod to her upcoming album of the same name, which will hit shelves on Nov. 17.
The photo of the singer was taken from behind, and her full bottom is on display. It appears she was doing a little nude sunbathing on a deck when the photo was snapped.
According to People magazine, this isn’t the first time Sia has put it all out there. In early October, she posed with a bared breast with just a banana emoji giving her a little cover.
Sia might be willing to bare her body for the camera from time to time, but one thing she typically keeps private is her face. When she performs or appears in public, the “Chandelier” singer uses oversized wigs to hide her face from fans.
In a 2015 appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” she opened up about why she hides her face.
“So that I can go to Target and buy a hose if I want to, or [if] I find I am in very need of a restroom and I can’t find one, I could go by the side of the road, and no one would be following me with a camera trying to get ‘the shot,'” she joked.
DeGeneres tried to coax her friend to take off the wig in that appearance, but fans were let down when a dancing reindeer interrupted the special and kept Sia’s identity a secret.
Earlier this year, the singer did step out sans wig and in March, she was spotted at LAX without her trademark wig as she headed to Dubai for a performance.
