Sia isn’t the one to get blackmailed, releases her naked photo online

Sia’s naked picture was being sold online but the singer released it herself.

Cheap Thrills singer Sia is not the one who gets threatned by online trolls. The Australian singer got to know that a naked photo of hers was up for sale to the highest bidder. Before someone could earn money from this distasteful act, Sia herself released this picture online.

Sia shared it on her Instagram and Twitter handles with the caption, “Someone is apparently trying to sell naked photos of me to my fans. Save your money, here it is for free. Everyday is Christmas!”

The picture has a watermark on it that reads ‘CLIENT PREVIEW’ and looks like a paparazzi shot. Below the image, a message reads “If you make the purchase it will be unblurred…”. The Chandelier singer released the picture online proving that celebrities should not feel threatened by anonymous trolls.

Sia’s fans were overwhelmed by her bold step and applauded the artist on her social media handles. Fans showered her with love for taking the bull by the horns as many other celebrities would not have done the same. Such paparazzi pictures showcase a massive breach of privacy but the shutterbugs assume everything is fair play as the one being photographed is a celebrity. Since Sia put an end to this fiasco herself, it sets an example for women across the world who might be getting harassed or blackmailed for their private photos. Had these pictures gotten sold online, as the perpetrator intended, it would have definitely resulted in a huge scandal for the artist.

Earlier, actors Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton’s naked pictures were leaked in an iCloud hack.
