Sia ditches her trademark wig to show off her dolled-up face on Studio 10… before revealing the touching reason she chose to remove her disguise for the interview
She’s often seen in public sporting her trademark oversized wigs, which usually cover her entire face.
But in an interview with Studio 10 on Thursday, Australian songstress Sia ditched her disguise to flaunt her natural beauty, as she spoke to Angela Bishop about her debut movie, Music.
The Chandelier singer looked completely unrecognisable from her dramatic looks on-stage, as she enhanced her unmasked features with a dash of rosy blush, a bright pink lipstick and thick black eyeliner.

She wore her long peroxide blonde locks in a casual wavy style, and accessorised with an oversized headband on her head.
When asked by Angela why she decided to show her face during the interview, Sia said: ‘I think when you are talking about feelings, you should be able to see someone’s eyes.’
‘This is not what I would really like, this is what we call Director Sia. I am still in disguise. You will not catch me in a Target looking like this!’ she laughed.
Sia was on the show to discuss the movie she has directed, Music, starring Kate Hudson and Dance Moms alum Maddie Ziegler.

Sia wrote and directed the movie, which centers around autistic teen Music, who, due to unforeseen circumstances, ends up in the care of her drug-dealer half-sister Zu, played by Kate.
Throughout the movie, the main characters take part in colorful dance sequences, which are intended to depict how Music views the world.
The singer was met with criticism last month for casting 18-year-old dancer – who she has frequently worked with – in the titular role of Music, despite her not having autism.

However Sia hit back at her critics on Studio 10, explaining that the character demanded an actor who could also dance at a professional level, and insisting that ‘there is no way she could have used someone’ with the fictional character’s level of functioning to actually play her.
‘There is no way I could have used someone of [Music’s] level of functioning to play her,’ she said.
‘I also needed a dancer, for [the character’s] imaginary life.’
