We all know that Sia likes to keep herself and her wigs pretty private. But, truth of the matter is, she’s pretty hooked up with a lot of the people in the biz thanks to her ability to smash out a number-one tune. 

One of her colleagues, if you will, is none other than Yeezy aka Kanye West, who she took a little dig at on Australian radio this week. Following her rare performance on Sunrise on Tuesday, Sia spoke with Nova 96.9’s Ryan “Fitzy” Fitzgerald and Michael “Wippa” Wipfli on Wednesday where she was heard throwing a little shade Yeezy’s way.

When asked if it was a privilege to have Kanye reproduce Rihanna‘s “Diamonds”,  written by Sia in just 14 minutes, she replied famously, saying, “I don’t care.” When asked if she likes his music, she replied, “I mean, yeah I think so. I don’t really listen to music.”

Sia went on to emphasise what she thinks of Kanye as a person, not necessarily as an artist. “I find him fascinating to talk to, as a person. I rate him as a person,” she explained. “He’s fascinating to have a conversation with, well, mostly you’re listening, but it’s fascinating,” the Adelaide-born musician added, hinting that ol’ mate Yeezy really doesn’t know when to shut up.

Listen to the entire interview here, which was not filmed out of respect for Sia’s privacy.
