1,2, 3 annotate.
Pop star Sia, she of 2014’s inescapable hits “Chandelier” and “Elastic Heart,” has a good chance of taking home a Grammy this Sunday. Her talent for writing a solid pop song goes back years: You probably didn’t know she wrote or co-wrote songs for Rihanna (“Diamonds”), Beyoncé (“Pretty Hurts”), Britney Spears (‘Perfume”), David Guetta (“Titanium”), and Rita Ora (“Radioactive”). If you saw her recent SNL appearance, you know her music is very much a performance.
A little less than a year ago, Sia, who is a verified user, started adding her own annotations to the “Chandelier” entry on Genius, as The Guardian‘s Alex Hern discovered.
It’s not unheard of for artists to swoop in an annotate songs, but Sia’s are poetry, really. Totally using “oopsy on the shag front” in reference to all regrettable sexual encounters from here on out.
