Author: ARAB NEWSMon, 2017-03-27ID: 1490558208272554800DUBAI: Australian pop star Sia performed at the Dubai World Cup concert at Meydan Racecourse on Saturday, concealing her face by wearing her signature black-and-white wig that covered the whole face except for her chin.The 41-year-old has previously explained the real reason why she hides her face from the public during her guest appearance on James Corden’s “Carpool Karaoke.” “I was a singer for 10 or 11 years to mediocre success … I decided I didn’t want to be an artist anymore because I was starting to get a little bit famous and it was destabilizing in some way,” she recalled.“I thought, ‘What doesn’t exist in pop music at the moment?’ And it was mystery! I was like, ‘There’s pictures on Instagram of everyone at the dentist.’” Sia, however, ditched her iconic wig at the Los Angeles Airport recently, treating her fans with a rare appearance of her face.The “Chandelier” singer was on her way to Dubai.Many were surprised to see her bare faced without sunglasses on and smiling while paparazzis hounded her through the boarding gates.On stage at the Dubai World Cup, Sia held the audience captive for the entirety of the hour and 20-minute set, belting out one hit after another as her dancers performed in the background.As she stood in the shadow of her dancers, some in the audience wondered if it was really the pop star who was performing.“Hi Dubai,” Sia said during the performance, adding, “thank you very much.” Sia began the show with “Alive” followed by “Diamonds,” the Rihanna song she penned, and performed most of her ballads, including the Shia LaBeouf-starrer “Elastic Heart.” She finished with her magnum opus, “Chandelier.”
