Aussie singer Sia steps out in New York City after revealing she’s undergone a facelift
Sia has showcased the incredible results of her recent facelift during a colourful appearance in New York City.
The Adelaide-born singer, 47, was decked out in a bright, abstract-patterned Commes des Garcons dress with a shiny, red baseball cap and matching sunglasses as she made her way to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony.
It comes just weeks after Sia – who has famously covered her face with large wigs over the years – revealed that she’d undergone a facelift while presenting an achievement award to her “good friend” Dr. Ben Talei at the 2023 Daytime Beauty Awards.
“I’m a pop star that normally hides my face and doesn’t lie about s**t,” Sia (whose real name is Sia Furler) told the audience.
“I got an amazing facelift from Dr. Talei. He is incredible, and he is doing so much good work — and not just for the pop stars of the world.”
The Chandelier singer added that she’s been open about her procedure with friends who have complimented her appearance recently.
“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,” Sia gushed.
As her star rose back in 2014, Sia opened up on US show Nightline about her decision to keep her face concealed.
“I don’t want to be famous or recognisable,” she explained at the time.
“I don’t want to be critiqued about the way that I look on the internet.
“I’ve been writing pop songs for pop stars now for a couple of years, and I’ve become friends with them and see what their life is like, and that’s not something I want.”
The notoriously private musician gave a rare personal interview in September, explaining that she’d been “severely depressed” following her 2016 divorce from her first husband, filmmaker Erik Anders Lang.
“That really threw me for a loop. That was such a dark time that I was in bed for three years, really, really severely depressed. And so I couldn’t really do anything for that period of time,” she told Apple Music’s Zane Lowe on his podcast.
The singer is now happily married again, having wed Dan Bernad in a stunning ceremony in Portofino, Italy, in May.
