Sia, the enigmatic pop sensation renowned for concealing her face beneath colossal wigs, has left the world astounded with her dramatic facelift reveal at a recent awards show.
This celebrated artist, responsible for chart-toppers like ‘Chandelier’ and ‘Cheap Thrills,’ has long resorted to her iconic wigs to shield herself from the relentless pressures of fame.
During a revealing interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1 last month, she unveiled the reason behind her iconic blonde wig, describing it as a protective “little bubble” she had crafted for herself. She shared, “When I got sober is when I put the wig on my face, and that’s when I had in-ears and wig, and I’m just like, ‘It’s like I’m in a little bubble with myself.'”
However, it was a jaw-dropping moment for fans of the Australian singer-songwriter when she graced the stage at the 5th annual Daytime Beauty Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday, October 1.
Sia, aged 47, whose full name is Sia Kate Isobelle Furler, defied her usual disguise by allowing her hair to be pinned back, all while presenting Beverly Hills surgeon Dr. Ben Talei with the prestigious award for Outstanding Achievement in Medicine. But that was just the beginning of the shock.
In a bold revelation, Sia announced to the astonished audience that Dr. Ben Talei was the mastermind behind her transformative cosmetic surgery, and she couldn’t contain her excitement, exclaiming, “I’m a pop star that normally hides my face and doesn’t lie about s***. I got an amazing facelift from Dr. Talei.”
But she didn’t stop there; Sia went on to shower praise on Dr. Talei’s exceptional work, proclaiming, “He is incredible. And he is doing so much good work – and not just for the pop stars of the world.”
The exact timing of the procedure remained a tantalizing secret, but Sia continued to captivate the audience with her effusive admiration for the results, revealing, “I was showing someone in the back my before-and-afters right before I came on. People go, ‘You look nice.’ I’m like, ‘Dr. Ben Talei, facelift’ for like anything you could ever want. I love him, I can’t say enough good about him.”
Dr. Talei reciprocated the love when he took the stage to accept his award, attesting to Sia’s remarkable character. He marveled, “I don’t know if you guys know how amazing Sia is as a person. We have a lot of common friends, and it’s always shocking how many keep saying, ‘I love her, I love her, I love her.’ She’s amazing.”
In a touching tribute, he added, “She really is, like you can see – a bright ray of sunshine and made my nieces and nephews’ days. She invited them over to her house for a big party, and the whole family loves her. I’m super grateful.” The world remains stunned by Sia’s daring revelation and her newfound radiance.
