About not showing her face, Sia tells the magazine, “People say, ‘Enough of this s–t where she doesn’t show her face’…I’m trying to do this differently, for serenity,” she states. “And it’s a fun game for me as well. I have nothing to lose. But of course I want to be loved. So when people say, ‘Show your face, you’re not ugly.’ I want to say, ‘I know. I’m not doing it because I think I’m ugly; I’m trying to have some control over my image. And I’m allowed to maintain some modicum of privacy.”

Sia also talks about how this article is only her fourth interview.
