Singer-Songwriter Sia is known to conceal her face with hats and wigs has an impressive net worth.
Following the release of her sixth studio album, 2014’s “1000 Forms of Fear,” Australian singer-songwriter Sia has become a household name in the music industry thanks to smash hits like “Chandelier” and “Elastic Heart.” She’s accumulated a massive fan base, but surprisingly, very few actually know what she looks like underneath her stylish hats and signature wigs.
The 47-year-old vocalist recently graced the stage at Miley’s New Year’s Eve Party, performing “Unstoppable” alongside Talking Heads founding member David Byrne. While many immersed themselves in the empowering anthem, others couldn’t help but wonder: How much is Sia worth now? here’s what we know about her financial details.
What is Sia’s net worth?
Sia Furler is an Australian pop singer and songwriter who has a net worth of $30 million and makes an awesome salary per year, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
In 2014, Sia purchased a rather unassuming bungalow in Echo Park for around $660,000. The property sits in a relatively remote, peaceful area and features 836 square feet of living space. The two-bedroom home might not seem fit for a celebrity of Sia’s status, but it certainly managed to attract buyers when she put it on the market in 2018 for $849,000. Within a couple of months, she had sold it for $980,000 – $130,000 more than the asking price. This provided the singer with an almost 33% return on her investment within four years – an impressive feat.
In 2015, it was reported that Sia Furler and her then-husband Erik Anders Lang had purchased a 4,549-square-foot property in Toluca Lake, an affluent neighborhood of Los Angeles populated by more than a few other celebrities. Furler and Lang paid $5.15 million for the property, which sits on a 1.36-acre piece of land that features a pool.
Also in 2015, Sia purchased a property in Los Feliz for $4.7 million. Just one year later, she sold the property for $4.75 million for a small profit margin. The elaborate home was built back in 1924, and it features a library, 6 fireplaces, and over 5,000 square feet of living space. Although it sits on less than an acre of land, the property’s yard is nothing to sneeze at, with fountains, a spa, and extensive lawns and gardens. In addition, Sia owns property in Palm Springs.
Sia said she doesn’t wear her signature wig unless cameras are around.
Although the “Unstoppable” singer has made a point to cover her face when performing or walking a red carpet, she has been known to ditch the elaborate hats and enormous wigs. During a 2016 “Carpool Karaoke” segment on The Late Late Show With James Corden, Sia told the titular host that she doesn’t disguise herself “unless there are cameras around.”
“I only wear this to maintain a modicum of privacy,” she said.
Sia further explained her decision to conceal her face from the public, stating, “I was a singer for like 10 or 11 years to mediocre success, and I was an alcoholic and a drug addict. I sobered up and decided I didn’t want to be an artist anymore, because I was starting to become a little bit famous, and it was destabilizing in some way.”
“So I thought, ‘What doesn’t exist in pop music at the moment?’ And it was mystery,” she added. “I was like there’s pictures on Instagram of everyone at the dentist.”
Shortly after lending her vocals to David Guetta’s smash 2011 pop hit “Titanium,” Sia began hiding her face in public. She has explained this decision several times, announcing that she wears hats and wigs to protect herself from the shady side of fame. The “Cheap Thrills” singer also addressed this in her 2013 op-ed for Billboard.
Sia sat down with Chris Connelly on Nightline in 2014, telling him that she does not want to be “famous or recognizable.”
