Award winning pop star, singer, song writer, record producer and music director Sia Kate Isobelle Furler clocks 42 today.
She was born in 1975 in Adelaide, Australia. The Australian songstress has been making waves in the music industry over the years.
Sia is a pop artist however, she adds a little bit of Soul and Hip-hop sometimes.
Her style makes her different from the rest. She has this signature blonde and black wig with either a big bow worn on it or a hat. The wig serves as a covering for her face.
When confronted with the question of why she covers her face, she replied “music is meant for the ears, not the eyes”.
Before she started covering her face, she showed her face a couple of times in her videos and even on the red carpet.
Sia, in an interview with the National Public Radio (NPR), mentioned that she doesn’t hide her face because she is shy.
Although, in the year 2016, Sia came out as bi-sexual, however in 2015, She got married to filmmaker Erik Anders.
Her marriage to Erik dissolved after two years over irreconcilable differences.
The pop artist has written numerous songs that were hits in the past years including “Cheap Thrills”, “Titanium”(with David Guetta), “Chandelier” “Diamonds” (for Rihanna), “Pretty Hurts” (for Beyonce) and many others. She has collaborated with Zayn Malik, The Weeknd, Celine Dion, Eminem and many others.
The album, “1000 Forms of Fear” debuted at the top of the Billboard 200, selling over 52,000 copies then.
She has also been involved in movies like Annie (2014), Transparent (2015), Zootopia (2017), Lion (2017), Wonder Woman (2017), Fifty Shades darker (2017) providing melodious sound tracks.
As an activist, Sia’s kindness could be seen in her love against aids on World Aids day and LGBT, she campaigns against aid, provide homes for homeless pets (especially dogs) and many other things. It is no doubt that Sia is a lover of dogs as she has pictures of dogs tattooed all over her hands.
It is obvious from her pictures, that she is more or less obsessed with red lipsticks and not a fan of accessories.
As an award winning singer, Sia has been nominated for series of awards and has won many of them. She has won eight APRA Awards, ten ARIA Awards, MTV Video Music Awards among many others.
Sia is known for her stupendous lyrics, poetry, contemporary dancers (with Maddie Ziegler as her main muse), weird song titles like Elastic Heart, Hostage, Fire meets Gasoline and so much more.
Cheers to a fabulous new year for the pop artist.
