Sia: ‘Chandelier’ Singer Confesses To Childhood Drug Use
Sia has been open about the fact that she’s bipolar. In a new interview, she links it to her early drug use. “I don’t think it’s f****d up childhood [that caused my bi-polar disorder], in my case. I refrain from blaming anything on my parents. What I do think is that I smoked too much pot when I was a kid. I think it f****d my brain up,” she reveals to The Howard Stern Show.
In the interview, Sia also opens up about her unusual childhood with her father, who had dual personalities. “I do find him amusing. I think it’s the only way to function within the relationship. Growing up he had two very unique personalities. One was called Phil and one was called Stan… Phil was like the best dad ever… He was fun but he was eloquent and he was present and interesting and interested. When Stan came around stuff got scary,” Sia says.
Wow. We applaud Sia for being so open about how she believes using drugs as a teen caused her later trauma. Being so open takes serious guts!
