Sia Furler, a songwriting savant whose writing credits include mega hits like Rihanna's "Diamonds" and Flo Rida's "Wild One", has been making an even bigger splash as a solo act with her own hit single, "Chandelier," but there's one thing she doesn't want to achieve: celebrity.
The songstress openly shares her struggles with depression, anxiety and past addictions during interviews and on social media, but rarely performs and now avoids being photographed. Sia went so far as writing an Anti-Fame Manifesto and has been coined the "the Socially Phobic Pop Star" by The New York Times. Earlier this year, she insisted on being filmed with her back toward the camera during interviews on Nightline and Chelsea Lately. Most viewers wondered if her anti-social antics and blonde bob wig were part of a publicity ploy.
"I don't want to be famous, or recognizable," Sia told ABC News. "I don't want to be critiqued about the way that I look on the Internet."
Here are more reasons why Sia avoids the limelight. Quotation above via usmagazine.com.
