Recently, a single #Nude Photo was released of the singer #Sia. The photo was released by Sia via her Twitter account. The singer did this in an effort to neutralize an act of exploitation. The photo depicts Sia from behind on what appears to be a balcony. Sia is infamous for hiding her face under large wigs, bows, and hats. According to Sia, she does this to maintain mystery and privacy. In 2016, the singer told James Corden, "I don't wear this unless there are cameras around. I only wear this to try and maintain a modicum of privacy." Lately, the Aussie singer is garnering quite a bit of attention surrounding a single image.

Every individual’s privacy should be respected and even media professionals need to have some level of dignity with their work.

There are some obvious questions that may come to mind about this incident. If you're famous and you don't want anyone taking nude photos of you, why would you go out onto your balcony in your birthday suit? Sure, a famous individual has just as much right as anyone to march into their backyard in the buff. However, they know that cameras lurk around corners right?

Who caused Sia's exploitation?

To a great extent, celebrities are in charge of maintaining the popularity and relevance of their name. Celebrities are known for causing their own scandal, releasing their own nude photos, videos, and hiring paparazzi.

Depending on who you ask they'll tell you that is a part of the job. Threatening to release nude photos of another individual can land a person in legal trouble.

It's quite clever to neutralize this type of attack against yourself by doing the unexpected and releasing photos that were intended to embarrass you on your own terms. Again, the photos would have never happened if she wasn't outside naked in the first place. Sia is a singer [VIDEO] who often hides her face and most of her body, so she of all people should expect someone to go out of their way to get a photo of her.

Sia responds to nude photo

The person who possesses the nudes sent Sia the following, “If you make the purchase it will be unblurred and you will receive an additional 14 images”. Sia made the following response on Twitter. "Someone is apparently trying to sell naked photos of me to my fans. Save your money, here it is for free. #Everyday Is Christmas!"

If you examine the facts, you may notice that this could just be a promotion for her album. Sia’s album "Everyday Is Christmas" is slated for release on November 17. An upcoming album release requires attention and sales to be a success. When she responded to the paparazzi, the singer plugged the name of her album. Do you feel that Sia turned a potentially negative situation into a positive one?
