Sia VMA Nomination

Sia’s “Chandelier” has been nominated for a VMA. The little girl who dances with abandon in this video is captivating (reminding me of my sister, Cecilia, at that age). Her Sia wig struck me as perhaps a bit creepy but also funny—and is, of course, a nod to Sia’s famous camera-shyness. I did an interview with the singer several years ago for VanityFair.com, after her performance at the Tribeca Film Festival’s music lounge (note the real Sia bob in the photo I took that day). I loved talking to her—she was funny and down-to-earth.
