Lea's songwriter Sia forgets that interviews don't always translate well through text

Lea Michele received some help from singer-songwriter Sia for songs on her new album Louder, and now the artist is opening up about the songwriting process.

“Maybe it was because I have a dead boyfriend, too,” Sia told The New York Times about her connection with Lea. “Maybe I have some shame around it. Maybe I’m embarrassed because I’m writing something so cheesy. Then something like that experience will happen, and I’ll realize maybe I’m not as stupid as I thought — and maybe people aren’t as stupid as I think. It occurs to me that there is value to what I do.”
