Sia Gives Stange Performance on Ellen…With Back to the Audience. Why? [VIDEO]
The new single "Chandelier" from Sia is pretty amazing, no lie. The video, equally amazing and strange, has been seen close to 12 million times. And she's started to make the media rounds, including an awkward performance on "Ellen" the other day, where she chooses to not show her face. Huh?
No surprise, this performance is amazing, and recreates the video, once again starring Dance Mom's star Maddie Ziegler. It's just add another layer of strange that Sia's back is to the audience the whole time (and you can tell the audience isn't sure how to respond). So what's the deal? Sia just doesn't like to be seen.
It's a strange concept in this age of overexposure that she'd take this stance, especially when she's had such success already. She's the female voice on Flo Rida’s “Wild Ones” and David Guetta’s “Titanium” (which she co-wrote as well in just 40 mins reportedly). She's also worked with some of the hottest female popstars, and wrote Rihanna’s “Diamonds” and Beyonce’s “Pretty Hurts.”
Yes, it's weird, but is it wrong that she wants privacy and people to recognize her art and not her?
