Sia Recreates Her Breathtaking 'Chandelier' Music Video with Lena Dunham
Sia is an odd egg, in the best kind of way. Like a lot of folks, I’m most familiar with her as the singer behind the Six Feet Under finale song, “Breathe Me,” but of course, she’s also written a ton of songs (including Flo Rida’s “Wild Ones,” Rihanna’s “Diamonds,” Beyonce’s “Pretty Hurts,” David Guetta’s “Titanium”). What’s also interesting about her these days is that she doesn’t want to show her face; she is actively avoiding the trappings of fame. She wants to be known for her music, not for her face.
It’s why she doesn’t show her face in the remarkable video from her song “Chandelier,” which was breathtakingly recreated with the same 11-year-old girl on “Ellen” a while back. Last night, she recreated the video again on Seth Meyers, but instead of the 11 year old girl fro the video, she used Lena Dunham.
It’s interesting, but I think I preferred the 11-year-old girl.
