澳大利亚歌手Sia热单-Chandelier

【intro 今日导读】

Even though Sia has been performing and writing music for more than twenty years, she has recently gained a lot of popularity from her newest album. This is even more unexpected since Sia has decided to hide her face. She’s shy and doesn’t like being famous.

Instead, Sia has actors and dancers who are already famous wear a wig that looks like her own hairstyle to perform in her place. In her latest music videos for the songs "Chandelier" and "Elastic Heart," a young dancer wears the light-colored wig and does some amazing interpretive dancing to her music.

Marni really enjoys the artistry of the new popular music videos, but Brian doesn't really understand them. Find out more in today’s English lesson about the singer Sia.

【Dialogue 情景对话】

Brian:  Hey, Marni. Have you seen this new artist who did the "Chandelier" video?

Marni:  Sia?

Brian:  Yeah, what did you think of that?

Marni:  So, are we talking about "Chandelier," or her new one, "Elastic Heart"?

Brian:  They’re very similar, aren't they?

Marni:  There's the same girl who's in both of them, who is donning a Sia wig.

Brian:  They both just have interpretive dancing in them.

Marni:  Yes. I think they’re amazing. There’s such artistry in them. I just find them captivating.

Brian:  Really? I just don't get it.

Marni:  Really?

Brian:  I just think they’re bizarre just to be bizarre.

Marni:  Hmm, interesting. Maybe I’m such a fan of dance and I just think there's such interesting stories that can be told through interpretive dance. They are a little bizarre, especially "Elastic Heart." But I think they’re really engaging. I like that people are using dance to tell stories.

Brian:  I will say that when I watched them, what happened was completely unexpected.

Marni:  There you go.

Brian:  Quite surprising.

Marni:  I think that’s part of what an artist wants is to have unexpected reactions.
