First of all I’m gonna spill this confession. Sia has been one of my favorite music artists since Titanium but unfortunately, I never even bothered to Google her up. I was watching her video Elastic Heart featuring Maddie Ziegler and the dirty (but still hot) Shia LaBeouf, this morning that the intriguing idea behind the making of that video prompted me to search for her online. Seriously, everyone who thought the video sexualized the little girl is shit stupid. It made me tear up to tell you the truth. I’ve always been fascinated with the emotion behind psychiatric disorders and this video in particular conveys a bipolar father’s relationship with his daughter. Just sad.
Anyway, I feel like a total loser now. I think I’m the last person on earth to search for Sia online. To think that last year it’s as if a day of radio won’t be complete without any Sia songs, I can’t blame myself for being a total loser because I don’t really search for the latest in celebrity news and stuff. I usually just hear updates from my brother. But this certainly caught my interest. I just found out that like how Lady Gaga and Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic started in the music industry, Sia has also written a bunch of songs for other artists like Beyonce, Rihanna and Britney Spears. And I still think up to now that we’ve all been hypnotized by her genius, she’s still selling songs to other artists. Smart, very smart. It’s like she planted seeds of awesomeness in other artists’ music. People won’t just remember her for her hairstyle.
Here is a list of 10 Songs I didn’t know were written by Sia.
Diamonds by Rihanna
Canonball by Lea Michele
Pretty Hurts by Beyonce
Perfume by Britney Spears
We Are One (Ole Ola) by Pitbull ft. Jennifer Lopez and Claudia Leitte
Loved Me Back to Life by Celine Dion

After listening to the songs, did you have that weird feeling you were listening to Sia?
I know I did.
