Mysterious be-wigged singer Sia has generously dedicated a substantial amount of her wig budget towards the care and feeding of two teenage boys who she adopted last year. According to People, Sia spoke to The Morning Mash Up show on SiriusXM and confirmed that she’s a mom to two 19-year-old boys who had aged out of the foster care system. She did not specify if, in addition to getting their own bedrooms, they also each received a closet full of wigs and unitards for family photos and the like.
Sia is currently single, having divorced her husband of 2 years, Erik Lang, in 2016. According to People.
“I actually adopted two sons last year. They were both 18 — they’re both 19 years old now,” she revealed. “They were aging out of the foster care system. Yeah, and I love them.”
Apparently, Sia has been on the lookout for a teenage boy to bring home for a while now.
In 2019, Sia hinted about expanding her family when she offered to provide a forever home to Dasani, a teenage boy featured in the HBO documentary Foster.
“Hey Dasani from ‘FOSTER’ on HBO! I’d like to adopt you,” Sia wrote in a since-deleted tweet. “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.”
I personally can’t think of anything worse than inviting two teenage boys to share my living space, but Sia’s obviously a better person than I am. These babies are too big to be swinging from the rafters (or chandeliers if you got ‘em). Sia also talked a bit about how the boys are handling quarantine.
The pop star went on to share how life has been for the family amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, explaining how one of her sons has been having a little bit of difficulty adjusting to life at home as many places are locked down due to the health crisis.
“They are both finding it pretty difficult, one more so than the other. But they’re both doing things that are really good for them right now, that are really helpful. They’re really doing a lot of educational stuff that’s good for them,” she said.
Ever the shrewd businesswoman, Sia dropped this news on the same day her newest single was released. Kind of like how she released paparazzi pictures of her naked (wigless) ass that somebody was trying to sell and used it as an excuse to plug her Christmas album, a move I must tip my wig to. Here’s Sia talking about her instant family.
Those boys must have been so confused to learn that not only were they being adopted as legal adults, they were being adopted by a rich, blind, rainbow sherbet flavored rag doll. That said, I’m available for adoption if Sia should decide she wants to expand her family further. But I’m going to need a separate house because, yuk, teenage boys!
