Nudes are one of the most problematic phenomenons in modern society. Whilst they can bring two people in a consenting relationship closer together (and provide a lot of fun in doing so), hackers and unscrupulous partners often decide to share them with the world.
Having your nudes leaked can have devastating consequences. If they are shared with the wrong people, they could be available on the internet for years to come, and if you’re a celebrity, they could fetch a handsome sum amongst your fans. Because of the high price tag attached to celebrity nudes, members of the paparazzi will go to extraordinary lengths to break enterings (and social decency) so that they can get ‘exclusive’ pictures – and that’s exactly what has happened to singer and songwriter Sia. Once these pictures are taken, there is little that celebrities can do to stop them from being sold to the highest bidder. But when Sia discovered that someone was trying to sell her nudes, she decided to take a stand and boy did she slay. Instead of allowing a member of the paparazzi to profit from her nudes, she decided to leak them on Twitter. This bold move proved that she is proud of her body and enabled her to reclaim ownership of the pictures before they were sold. Unfortunately, some of the biggest names in Hollywood have fallen victim to having their intimate snaps shared with the world, but this is the first time that a celebrity has taken action to stop the paparazzi profiting from them. The 41-year-old Australian star rose to fame in 2014, although she has earned a living as a singer and songwriter since she was in her 20s. Since then, her career has gone from strength to strength, and she is releasing her latest album this month. On the subject of her latest album, Sia used its title Everyday is Christmas when leaking her nudes, enabling her to stop whoever took them in their moneymaking tracks and get a little self-promotion from the incident. In the now viral Twitter post, Sia released one of her nudes with a ‘client preview’ watermark stamped over it. The photograph was accompanied by the statement, “If you make the purchase, it will be unblurred and you will receive and additional 14 images [sic].” The singer captioned the Tweet in the most epic way possible, adding in a humorous reference to her upcoming album, “Someone is apparently trying to sell naked photos of me to my fans. Save your money, here it is for free. Everyday is Christmas!” Sia’s fans could not believe what they were seeing on the social media website, and they were quick to praise the singer for her decision to leak her own nudes, with many other prominent celebrities tweeting their praise too. Whilst Sia isn’t the first celebrity to fight back over her nudes being leaked, she is the first to leak them herself to stop the paparazzi from profiting. Other stars have opted to claim that the pictures are of lookalikes, and some have simply gone to court. We hope that this incident deters the paparazzi from taking nude photographs of celebrities without their consent. On a more lighthearted note, it’s not just us humans who love singing along to Sia’s incredible songs. Dogs love them too! If there’s any justice in the world, this incident will help make Everyday is Christmas this year’s number one holiday album.
