Sia has recently revealed that she has autism on an episode of the ‘Rob Has a Podcast’, which featured Carolyn Wiger, a former contestant on the reality competition ‘Survivor’, according to CNN.
“I’m on the spectrum, and I’m in recovery and whatever”, Sia said.
“Being in recovery and also knowing about which kind of neurologicality you might have, or might not have, well, I think one of the greatest things is that nobody can ever know you and love you when you’re filled with secrets and living in shame,” Sia responded.
“When we finally sit in a room full of strangers and tell them our deepest darkest most shameful secrets and everybody laughs along with us, and we don’t feel like pieces of trash for the first time, we feel seen for the first time in our lives for who we actually are and then we can start going out into the world as operators just operating as humans,” the singer continued.
Sia, 47, seemed to imply that she relatively recently became aware that she is on the spectrum.
“For 45 years, I was like … ‘I’ve got to go put my human suit on,’” she said. “And only in the last two years have I become fully, fully myself.”
