This dialogue between Kristen Wiig and singer-songwriter Sia Furler makes me think that Sia is – sure – a Sagittarius (Sun plus Neptune) with Moon in Gemini but that she’s probably got her Venus Uranus in Scorpio Rising. And that the whole anonymity/sobriety thing coincided with Saturn over these points from late 2012. She also has Saturn in Leo, which shines through here.
SIA: I’m 39, and I would like to be able to make great pop music for another 20 years. And it feels like creating a sort of inanimate blond bob and allowing other people to play the role of the pop singer, it affords me a little bit more freedom in terms of my expiration date.
WIIG: I think people can definitely relate to that. I know I can. I’m wearing a mask right now and I’m just walking around downtown New York. Nobody can see me! [both laugh] Everyone knows who you are. Everyone knows your music. But it’s so great that you can weave in and out of life and still have all of the good stuff and none of the bad stuff.
SIA: I’ll just have to keep trying to do it. Because my ego could definitely get in the way. You know, I made a mistake. I went to parties on Oscar night and I didn’t hide my face. And then I realized that it’s work. What was I thinking? I could have dinner with these people at their houses, but anywhere you go now where there’s a camera, it’s actually work. I was excited because I got invited to these big, fancy parties. And then you realize, “If I’m going to go, I’m going to need to get a tan. I’m going to need to have my roots done. I’m going to have extensions, probably. I’m going to get a stylist for sure. I’m going to have to work out five times that week with Jennifer Aniston’s trainer.” This is commerce and I’m $5,000 in the hole just to go to a party. So it was a great learning experience. That is not what I’m going to be doing in the future. But it’s funny to hear people in the biz say, “Oh, it’s nice you showed your pretty face.” You, of all people, should know. You can’t even leave the house. I need to go to a meeting, a 12-step meeting, and then, like, hang out with a bunch of really fucking major weirdoes. That’s what I need.
WIIG: Do you believe in aliens or mermaids or something?
SIA: I do. I think that it would be unwise of us not to believe that there is life outside of us, intelligent life. And so I do believe in aliens. I have seen the [former] Canadian minister of defense discuss the fact that he knows that the American government is working with five different species of aliens presently. Which is a real fucking mind-blower. I want to believe in a way that makes me feel a little bit scared. So then I like to think about dogs because it makes me feel safe. And mermaids. I believe in Daryl Hannah.
She makes some extremely epic points here.
