Notorious recluse and miracle worker Sia has made yet another stride in her pledge to remain decidedly out of the spotlight, hiring a stunt double in the form of Girls creator Lena Dunham to take her place on the stage during a performance of Chandelier on Late Night With Seth Meyers.
Sporting a trademark Sia blonde bob and decked out in a head-to-toe white ensemble, Dunham prances across the set, drawing inspiration from the dance routine made famous by 11-year-old star Maddie Ziegler in the viral Chandelier video. Meanwhile Sia, we presume, lies face down atop a bunk bed.
Earlier this year, in a rare interview with Dazed & Confused, Sia explained her use of look-a-likes was all a part of a “much larger concept” for her new album, which she says is centered on one desire: “I don’t want to be famous.”
“Basically I plan to put different people in blonde bobs because the concept now is to create visual art. I know I can sing and I know I can write songs but this is my time to create visual art. Directing all these live performances is really exciting now,” Sia told the magazine.
