Australian singer-songwriter Sia has revealed that she is on the autism spectrum. In a recent interview with The New York Times, Sia said that she was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) two years ago.
“I’ve always been different,” Sia said. “I never really fit in. I thought I was just weird.”
Sia said that she was diagnosed after she started seeing a therapist for anxiety and depression. The therapist suggested that Sia might be on the autism spectrum, and she decided to get tested.
“I was shocked,” Sia said. “But it also made a lot of sense.”
Sia said that she is still learning about autism, but she is grateful for the diagnosis. She said that it has helped her to understand herself better and to connect with other people on the spectrum.
“I’m not broken,” Sia said. “I’m just different.”
Sia’s revelation has been met with support from fans and other celebrities. Singer Halsey tweeted, “I’m so proud of you for sharing this,” while actress Patricia Arquette wrote, “Thank you for sharing your truth. You are an inspiration.”
Sia’s diagnosis is a reminder that autism is a spectrum and that there is no one-size-fits-all experience. It is also a reminder that people with autism can be successful in any field, including music, film, and television.
Sia is an inspiration to many people, and her diagnosis is a sign that she is not afraid to be herself. She is a role model for people on the autism spectrum and for everyone who feels different.
