Why Does Sia Refuse to Show Her Face?

If you watched the Grammys Sunday, you probably noticed that Sia kept her face hidden the entire night. She hit the carpet in a huge poofy wig that obscured her eyes and during her performance of "Chandelier," she kept her back turned to the audience as Maddie Ziegler and Kristen Wiig did interpretive dance.

This isn't the first time she's been shy about showing face. During her recent performances on Ellen, Jimmy Kimmel Live and Saturday Night Live, she did the same thing. So what gives? Back in 2013, Sia wrote a piece called My Anti-Fame Manifesto for Billboard saying she wants to be as private of a person as possible to avoid public criticism and haters.

"Imagine the stereotypical highly opinionated, completely uninformed mother-in-law character and apply it to every teenager with a computer in the entire world. Then add in all the bored people, as well people whose job it is to report on celebrities," she explained. "Then, picture that creature, that force, criticizing you for an hour straight once a day, every day, day after day."

We can totally sympathize with how internet bullying can be super harsh for celebs, but performing with your back turned to the audience seems a bit rude. And by hiding her face so much, it'll probably make people Google it even more.
What do you think of Sia's tactics to combat her own rising celebrity status?
