Australian singer/songwriter Sia made a name for herself by singing behind a mask, much like how Batman made a name for himself by putting on a mask and beating crime with his bare hands. However, during a recent appearance on Sesame Street, the singer performed sans mask, giving fans a rare view of her face, albeit while retaining her iconic black-and-white wig in addition to wearing a red clown nose and giant hair-bow.
You may be wondering why the star normally hides who she really is from the public. Reportedly, she is essentially Jem, having once been quoted as saying, “I don’t want to be famous or recognizable. I don’t want to be critiqued about the way that I look on the internet.” And in case you were wondering, the girl in the Wild Ones video was an actress lip-synching along to her vocals.
The whole skit was about the letter “S,” and showcases her love of singing songs. In what was clearly an attempt to prevent the public from figuring out her real identity, the other Muppets wear her iconic wig, as to confuse us mere mortals.
The singer promoted the skit on social media, having posted the following on Twitter.
