Sia Reveals She Has Adopted Two Teenage Boys
While we associate glamour, trends, money, and superficial lives with celebrities, we forget that they are humans beings too. Therefore, when a celebrity comes forward with a story of kindness and love, it might shock some people. Recently, it was revealed that Sia adopted boys, two teenagers, last year.
Despite having a successful singing career, fame made the Chandelier singer uncomfortable.
Up until 2012, Sia had five studio albums, multiple chart-topping singles and successful tours like We Meaning You. However, she started feeling discomfort with her growing fame. In an interview, she said:
“I just wanted to have a private life. Once, as my friend was telling me they had cancer, someone came up and asked, in the middle of the conversation, if they could take a photograph with me. You get me? That’s enough, right?”
She started wearing masks and refused to do tour promos. On her manager’s suggestion, Sia started writing songs for other artists. Including Beyoncé, she has written songs for Rihanna, Flo Rida, Kylie Minogue, and Alicia Keys. Her sixth music album, 1000 Forms of fear debuted at no 1 at US Billboard 200. Apart from her music, news started circulating a few months back that Sia adopted boys. Now the Cheap Thrills singer is setting the record straight.
In a recent interview, it was made clear that Sia adopted boys.
Recently, Sia appeared on SiriusXM’s The Morning Mash Up. During the interviews, she confirmed the news that Sia adopted boys last year. She said:
“I actually adopted two sons last year. They were 18 — they’re both 19 years old now. They were aging out of the foster care system. Yeah, and I love them.”
However, her adopted sons are having a hard time dealing with COVID-19 quarantine. While talking about it, she said:
“They are both finding it pretty difficult, one more so than the other but they are both doing things that are really good for them right now, that are really helpful. They are really doing a lot of educational stuff that’s good for them.”
While the news that Sia adopted boys is now confirmed, it first came out last year. When HBO documentary, Foster, released, Sia post a tweet which is now deleted. She addressed the teenager named Dasani who was featured in the documentary. She wrote:
“Hey Dasani from ‘FOSTER’ on HBO! I’d like to adopt you. We’re just trying to find you and get my house check done etc. But I want you to know you will have a home with me.”
However, it is unclear if one of the boys she adopted is Dasani or not. Regardless, it is such heart-warming news that the boys have a chance to a better life.
