Catching up with our favorite acts from down under
Kooky Aussie and adopted Angeleno Sia is plowing into high-profile territory, working hard on Christina Aguilera’s upcoming album. The former Zero 7singer reports on her blog that the two are fast friends, even if Aguilera’s towering talent is a bit intimidating. “I definitely pooped my pants when she first sang out loud in the room with us,” Sia writes. “Little prickles stood up all over me, marched first up, then down, then up again.” We had a similar reaction to Sia’s latest album, Some People Have Real Problems, so we were thrilled to hear she’s also working on new solo stuff.
