It’s always exciting when a ferociously talented weirdo gets rightful attention from the mainstream, and such has been the case with pop artist Sia in the past year with her surprise hit album 1000 Forms of Fear, which fostered hits like “Chandelier.” Though Sia’s next album is all recorded and ready to go, she’s still cranking out music videos for 1000 Forms, and released “Big Girls Cry” featuring frequent 12-year-old collaborator and dancer Maddie Ziegler, who happens to have the most expressive face we’ve ever encountered.
Part of Sia’s allure as an artist is her famous reclusiveness and adamant unwillingness to show her face – she hides behind wigs and absurdly concealed straight bangs to hide her face– a more secretive Lady Gaga whose private life is a relative mystery to the public.
