Sia Lifts Up the Curtain on 'This Is Acting' (Album Review)

They say that one person's trash is another person's treasure. When it comes to Sia, even broken glass can be polished into fine china. It's unnecessary to introduce pop music's most frequently called-upon songwriter in 2016: Few divas remain without at least one song credited to Sia Furler:…


Tinashe, Carly Rae Jepsen, Sia, Charli XCX And More Team Up For One Awesome, Female-Fronted Bleachers Cover Album

"Big Girls Cry" Video: Sia Concludes The '1000 Forms Of Fear' Trilogy

Sia has seriously put Dance Moms mini-diva Maddie Ziegler through the emotional ringer, from twirling away her demons inside an abandoned home for "Chandelier" to an epic cage battle against a shirtless Shia LaBeouf with "Elastic Heart." For the third and final part of her 1000 Forms Of Fear video…


"Let Your Tears Fall": Kelly Clarkson And Sia Form A Support Group On 'Piece By Piece'

Check out this EXCLUSIVE #MTVFirst & @ReesesPBCups album premiere! Despite how it may seem, Kelly Clarkson's Piece By Piece isn't actually leaking — which is shocking really, given the current state of album leaks in 2015. In fact, she just keeps delivering the music on a daily…


"Invincible": Kelly Clarkson Faces Her Fears With An Almighty Sia-Penned Anthem

Sia Makes A Memorable Debut With "Elastic Heart" And "Chandelier" On 'Saturday Night Live'

Sia, pop's other elusive chanteuse, made her Saturday Night Live debut last night. The fun part about Sia's 1000 Forms Of Fear campaign is the fact that the singer has continuously refused to show her face during any and all public appearances, stubbornly so, to make a point about fame. And…
