Sia Pokes Paparazzi by Posting Nude Photo They’d Threatened to Publish

Sia apparently beat an unnamed paparazzi company’s attempt to sell nude photos of her by posting one of them herself.

The Australian singer-songwriter, renowned for being camera-shy, posted on Twitter a blurry photo of a nude woman — possibly her — late Monday night.

“Someone is apparently trying to sell naked photos of me to my fans. Save your money, here it is for free. Every day is Christmas!”

Her last line is hilariously on-message as her new album, “Every Day Is Christmas” — a collection of original holiday songs written by her and Grammy Producer of the Year Greg Kurstin — is out next Friday. The presence of the two tweets at the top of the singer’s feed makes for a comic contrast.

The album is Sia’s first for new label Atlantic, which she joined earlier this year after several releases on RCA. The singer is currently directing her first feature film. Sia most recently wrapped up the North American leg of her headlining arena Nostalgic For The Present Tour. The limited tour, Sia’s only live dates for 2017, will continue this winter in stadiums across Australia and New Zealand.

In addition to her own successful solo career, Sia has written or co-written hits for Beyoncé, Kanye West, Rihanna, Britney Spears, Katy Perry, and others.
