This is from her MySpace's About section:

my name is sia furler. i am a unicorn fart. i was born out of the butthole of a unicorn called steve. someday i'll die. between now and then i'm going to keep my shit together and sing my ****ing heart out. i love dogs. they're my people. one day i'll write a real biography.


And this is from her myspace blog:

hello sweet sweet potatoes.
so i got pretty famous last week for about five
minutes when the video for buttons was leaked and
perezhilton.com put it on his site for all to see.
i pretty much owe him some part of my first born i
guess,apparently he is somewhere in the top ten most
powerful people in the media.
****ing amazing.
what wasn't quite as ****ing amazing was reading about
being an ugly bitch with a snaggletooth that could cut
someones penis in two.

ok nobody really said that,but they should
have,because it's way funnier than JUST dissing my
snaggletooth,which for the record,has never cut
anyones penis in two.

i guess what happened is kris moyes,the director,asked
if he could put it on his showreel,and we said
yes,having no idea it would make it's way to perez
within 3 hours of being uploaded.pretty exciting
stuff,i heard it's had 250,000 hit's on youtube now
which makes me all a tingle in my tinglers.
kris got the idea for contorting a face using sticky
tape from an artist whose name i can't remember on the
internet,and was writing a treatment for a vid for the
gossip,whilst staying at my house in LA(he is a friend
from horsetralia) i stuck my face up for fun and
thought it would be an awesome vid,and when the gossip
heard it they loved it but due to some sort of
travel/scheduling issue they couldn't do it,so i said
ok well let's do it together,for one of my songs,just
for fun.
so we did.
and it WAS fun.
apart from the whole clothes pegs on my face moment.
that was ****ing excruciating.
i actually had to have a break and regulate my
breathing while the natural opiates took over.
anyway,i sure am famous now,so it was pretty much
worth it.
pray for linds.
love on a lobster,
sia.

Bitch has been bat-shit insane all along. I love her.

Sia Furler is awesome. I think the Buttons video is pretty entertaining. And the song is catchy as hell. Can't wait to hear the album.

Flawless vocals here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V5Q5HEtyYQg

Anyway, so I'm listening to Zero 7 tonight, and I HAD NO IDEA THAT SIA ONLY DID TWO SONGS ON THEIR FIRST TWO ALBUMS.

I always thought tracks like "In The Waiting Line" and "In Time" were Sia songs, just her singing much more calmly. I was always like "wtf, they're making her sing weird, she shouldn't sing like this". :lol But then when I heard her solo albums, it became even more apparent that it wasn't her, the style was different. Sophie Barker is cool, but dammit, Sia should sing those songs. They'd be 100x better.

Also, did you know "Don't Bring Me Down" is about being the last one in a group of people to come down from ecstasy?

I really hope she gets more recognition, especially here in North America. She's too talented to ignore. I don't necessarily keep track of female artists, but she has to be one of the best to emerge over the past 10, maybe 15 years or so.

What's so shitty about it? She's just goofing off.

i love Sia, but there's so many "DO NOT WANT" frames in that video. Pretty good song, though i prefer her when she's more melancholic.

Exactly. Who doesn't like a girl who doesn't mind making an ass out of herself once in a while? Goofy chicks are awesome.

Yeah. Someone in the youtube comments said it best:

The video is genius. Yeah, she's a freak and most good musicians are. It's a nice change to see a woman be something other than a 13 y.o. boy's jerk off fantasy.
