Triple – maybe quadruple? – because of his commitment to do the controversy surrounding her casting choices for her next film The music Even more upsetting (and just generally worse), Sia gave an interview this week, once again asserting not only her right, but the moral good of her cast of neurotypical artist Maddie Ziegler as an autistic person in the movie. It is by IndieWire, which reports a interview the first-time musician and director gave Australian 10 News First, stating that “I couldn’t have used someone” from the “functioning level to play” character Ziegler’s role, due to the need an accomplished dancer to play the version that exists in the fantasy world character. (Dear Sia, you know neuroatypical people can still dance, right? Your friends, The AV club.)
Anyway, Sia went on to say that she didn’t know why people were mad at her anyway, because The music– which will be accompanied by a brand new album of songs – is not “a documentary”. Speaking about co-stars Kate Hudson and Leslie Odom Jr., Sia claimed, as if it were the same thing, “Kate is not a drug dealer and Leslie Odom Jr. [who plays Ebo] is not from Ghana. (Dear Sia, sorry to write to you again so soon. I wanted to ask though: Have you considered cutting your bangs? It might help you not miss the point again. – Stroke)
As previously reported, Sia did not deal with criticism from the neuroatypical community regarding his decision to pick Ziegler particularly well, firing back in November with claims his film was being unfairly judged, which people saying they went for. volunteers to try out the role were probably just “Bad Actors,” and just asking Heaven why everyone is so mean when she’s just trying to make her movie, huh? This week’s interview is really into the central fuck here, though: From what we can tell, Sia decided – based, it seems, on her work with the neuroatypical person that the role was originally based on: what to work with all neuroatypical person would be stressful and impractical for his film. And when people pointed out that that was almost certainly not true, she did the “Don’t do this on the internet, please” thing of not listening to the criticism, and instead getting more and more defensive. and pissed off. It’s a bad phrase, almost always, and it’s doing more and more bad things here.
Anyway. The music (the movie) is due out in February, while The music (the album) is slated to begin releasing in January.
