One of the biggest voices in pop music has no face: Sia. She started her career as a ghostwriter for stars like Rihanna and Beyoncé. Recently she found pop star success with her hit "Chandelier." So with her new album, "This Is Acting," you'd expect to see her front and center. Instead, she hides her face from the media spotlight, covered by wigs, hats and other foreign objects. Lindsay Zoladz from NYMag joins us to discuss Sia's the musician and Sia the media spectacle.

Featuring:
Sia - Chandelier
Rihanna - Diamonds
Sia - Alive
Sia - Reaper
Rihanna - Work (ft. Drake)
Sia - Bird Set Free
Duke Ellington - Cotton Club Stomp
