Watch Sia’s Delightfully Weird Carpool Karaoke with James Corden
The latest celebrity to fasten their seatbelt and join Late Late Show host James Corden for Carpool Karaoke is Sia. Though we kinda have to take James's word for it. That's because the singer wears her trademark wig for the car ride so we can't be 100% sure but I don't think anyone else could hit those notes the way Sia does.
While being treated to renditions of “Chandlier” and “Alive”, we also get to learn a little more about Sia. Like what's the deal with the whole wig thing? She explains that she only wears it when cameras are around to have some sort of privacy. “I was a singer already for like 10 or 11 years to mediocre success and I was an alcoholic and a drug addict. I sobered up and decided that I didn't want to be an artist anymore because I was starting to get a little bit famous and it was destabilizing in some ways. So I thought, ‘What didn't exist in pop music at the moment?' And it was mystery. I was like, You know, there's pictures of everyone on Instagram at the dentist,” she tells James. A pop singer who isn't about getting their picture taken, now that's refreshing.
James also mentions some other rather unusual things he learned about Sia. “You believe in aliens,” he ever so subtly drops into the conversation at one point with Sia acting surprised he knows this about her. She backs up her claim though by saying she saw a video of a “ex-Canadian minister of defense just saying plainly he knows for a fact that the American government are working with 5 different alien races.” Well, if the aliens show up in platinum blonde wigs, we'll know who to go to for help.
Oh, and later in the video Sia shows off her talent of holding a dozen eggs in her hands. Never change, Sia.
