Jamie Hewlett and Remi Kabaka Jr..
She told the 'Castaway' podcast: "I said to Steve Greenberg, who signed me when I was 14, ‘Steve, if we’re gonna do music videos, can we just do a cartoon like the Gorillaz so nobody knows what I look like?’
"And he said, ‘I didn’t sign you to hide you’... How jealous am I of Sia?”
Joss, now 33, also opened up on the dangers of fame, after two men planned to rob and kill her in 2011.
She added: "If you put yourself out there in that way then guess what?
"They’re gonna know what you look like and they might follow you and try to kill you, and they might call you all the names under the sun.
“Or they might fall in love with you and buy you flowers and turn up.”
In terms of her music career, Joss' most recent releases include 2020 singles 'Lean On Me' and 'Walk With Me', although she hasn't released a full length album since 'Water For Your Soul' in 2015.
