Pretty Hurts – “Pretty Hurts was such an incredible song, it’s really difficult to find a song with such a strong message that doesn’t feel preachy & Sia is such a genius. The second I heard the song, I’m like I have to sing this song. I don’t care how hard I have to fight for this song, this is my song! (laughs) I immediately saw the vision & I thought about pageants & I thought about the most humiliating ,judgmental place you can be as a woman. I feel like sometimes the world is a big contest, we’re all being judged. I wanted to capture how humiliating & insecure that makes you feel. Melina was able to capture that emotion & capture the extremes we feel we have to go to to please the people that judge us. I knew from the moment that I recorded the song that she was the person that I wanted to bring the visual to life.”

Not sure why Heaven and Blue aren't talked about. I wish she had more to say about the videos than just the songs. Imma need behind the scenes videos for Ghost/Haunted, Mine and Partition.
