Blood Diamonds Remixes Sia's "Elastic Heart" | NOISEY
Waylan Choy stashed this in Women 3.0
Sia rules, and her career has been a testament to true talent having some longevity in a notoriously fickle industry, first as a solo star in her own right, then as a pop writer penning smashes for Bey, Rih, Xtina, Katy, Kylie, and countless others. Her refusal to play within the ascribed parameters of pop celebrity—show my face you say? Nah!—is just one example of how she's rewriting the rule book and doing so in an unshowy way. She's matter of fact.
She was the voice of Zero 7, which is why she has tremendous credibility and behind the scenes cosign (much like Santogold). So it's a major coup for a relatively kept internationally-known artist to top the US charts.
About not showing her face: She's like Daft Punk...
Kiss pioneered this in the 1970s.
