One Woman Paid Everyone’s Bills At Walmart Claiming She Won A Lottery, Turns Out It Was Sia

The singer-songwriter, Sia, who many of you probably know for her famous hit ‘Chandelier,’ recently impressed her fans with her act of kindness. On November 27, she went out to Walmart and started paying for people’s groceries. The 43-year-old musician likes to keep her identity hidden by wearing eccentric wigs that cover her whole face, that’s why even her fans can’t always immediately recognize her without it. However, last week, a day before Thanksgiving, she was eventually identified and surprised her fans with her kindness.


Sia entered the supermarket and started saying that her name is Cici and she’d just won the lottery, before paying for strangers’ items.

However, her cover was blown when a fan realized who she truly is and asked for a photo.

People were left both starstruck and speechless by her actions. “I love that she did this not for recognition of showing kindness, but just actually being a kind person.

She didn’t want people to know who she was or why she was doing it,” one person tweeted.

Back in October, Sia also surprised her fans with her honesty. She revealed her struggles with the neurological disease and ehlers danlos. She used this disclosure as an inspiration to people who are going through the same struggles. “Hey, I’m suffering from chronic pain, a neurological disease [and] ehlers danlos and I just wanted to say to those of you suffering from pain, whether physical or emotional, I love you, keep going. Life is f– hard. Pain is demoralizing, and you’re not alone,” the singer tweeted.

Here’s how people reacted

I've wanted to do similar things. "Oh..you need diapers for the baby? Paid! You need your medications for the month? Done! Your kid has no clothes for school? Guess again!!" I've also wanted to take abandoned hospitals and hotels across the nation and refurbish them into housing for the homeless. I'm just one winning lottery jackpot away from making it happen!! Good Luck to you, Kjorn!! Hope you get that JP!
