Her hit “Chandelier” reached #8 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and did even better in other countries. In the past few years alone, she’s been on dozens of TV shows and interviews, garnered numerous awards and nominations, and collaborated with some of the hottest artists of the moment. But how much do you really know about Sia?
Sia Furler is the 38-year-old Australian singer/songwriter who is, ironically, famous for being fame-shy. For the past few years, Sia has refused to show her face in public performances, hoping to divert attention from her features and appearances and focus instead on her iconic blonde bob (think Daft Punk not showing their faces or Stefani Germanotta creating Lady Gaga as a separate vehicle for fame). Sia’s even gone so far as to write an Anti-Fame Manifesto in Billboard and state in this interview that she “[doesn’t] care about commercial success.” She might be trying to live a normal life, but Sia is anything but normal.
I don’t care about commercial success. I get to do what I love and communicate whatever I want.
Considering that Sia has, hands down, one of the best voices and greatest talents in the industry, it may surprise you that she can remain so mysterious. But while you may not know much about her, you certainly know her music. Find out what hits Sia wrote and collaborated on, and prepare to have your mind blown.
