Sia’s album release last year put the artist under a mainstream spotlight that she doesn’t seem too comfortable with. From performing “Chandelier” while facing away from the audience last year to this blind performance on Ellen, we can’t decide if the artist is making a statement or has simply found a new method for dealing with stage fright. Whatever the purpose, her performances are working for her and receiving much-deserved talk.
1000 Forms Of Fear is one of 2014’s best albums, and the latest single “Elastic Heart” is currently no. 32 on the Billboard Hot 100. Check out the music video featuring Shia LaBeouf and Maddie Ziegler here.
In the past, Sia has been open about mental health concerns she’s faced such as depression and severe anxiety attacks, as well as addictions to painkillers and alcohol. She considered retiring from performing five years ago, but here she is wowing audiences today, and we have nothing but respect for her drive and artistry.
