Sia fights paparazzi by posting her own nude photo

goss 08/11/2017

Sia has turned the tables on intrusive paparazzi after discovering a naked photo of her was being sold online.

The mysterious Australian singer-songwriter decided to take matters into her own hands and publish the nude pic herself, rather than let others make money off it.

"Someone is apparently trying to sell naked photos of me to my fans," Sia captioned the Instagram and Twitter post.

"Save your money, here it is for free. Everyday is Christmas!"

The 'Chandalier' singer is pictured completely naked in the photo, which is taken from behind as she stands on a balcony.

Apparently, the invasive snap was taken by a paparazzo from some distance, without her permission, and is one of 14 photos they were offering online.

Sia, who is known for appearing in public with a wig completely obscuring her face, is releasing her next album, Everyday is Christmas, later this month.

Her Kiwi fans can also experience her live in Auckland next month, when she performs Mt Smart Stadium on December 5.
