She cracked the entertainment industry more than 20 years ago. And while appearing in Late Late Show host James Corden’s latest Carpool Karaoke skit, Sia Furler opened up about her dark past of drugs and alcohol.

The 40-year-old said: ‘I was a singer already for like 10 or 11 years to mediocre success, and I was an alcoholic and a drug addict, and I sobered up and decided I didn’t want to be an artist any more.

‘I was starting to get a little bit famous and it was destabilising in some ways…so I thought “What doesn’t exist in pop music at the moment?” and it was mystery.’

The Elastic singer went on to explain that she now chooses to hide underneath her oversized wigs ‘to try and maintain a mediocre of privacy’.

When James asked her if the record executives have a problem with her shrouding her face in mystery, Sia simply replied ‘no’.
