The wigs are fun and all, but why is it that Sia refuses to appear publicly without a giant faux fringe?

The singer stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show Tuesday and talked about why she's so hesitant to shed her signature headpieces and show her face.

"Well it's just so that I can go to Target and buy a hose if I want to," Sia, 39, explained to Ellen DeGeneres. "Or if I find I'm very in need of a restroom, I can go in the side of the road. No one would be following me with a camera trying to get the shot."

DeGeneres, who has seen her face before, encouraged the singer to take off her wig for her live performance of "Alive" on the show. "Because you're beautiful and I want people to see what you look like," the host explained before attempting to help her remove her shiny, two-tone wig.
