1. Her new album is called "1000 Forms of Fear," and is due out in June. Along with lead single "Chandelier," the album includes a song titled "Eye of the Needle," as well as "brutal lyrics that are far too violent and introspective for Top 40 radio."
2. Pop star life led to an aborted suicide attempt. Sia's initial attempts at standard pop stardom drove her to become "increasingly dependent on alcohol and drugs." Months after contacting a drug dealer and ordering a huge amount of narcotics in May 2010, Sia planned on taking everything at once, and even wrote out a suicide note. A friend's call prevented her from following through with the plan, thankfully, and Sia soon began a 12-step program.

3. Sia wrote Rihanna's "Diamonds" in 14 minutes. And she wrote David Guetta's "Titanium" in 40 minutes. So, it took the songwriter less than a full episode of "Friends" to pen "Diamonds," and less than a full episode of "Law & Order" to pen "Titanium."
4. She attends "meditation workshops at Demi Moore's house." This isn't elaborated upon in the story, but still, good to know!
5. She has fans in Lea Michele -- and Britney Spears. Sia helped Michele purge her emotions about the death of boyfriend Cory Monteith on the song "If You Say So," by drawing from the experience of having her own boyfriend killed by a taxi in London a few years earlier. Meanwhile, Spears felt a connection with Furler while working on tracks like the "Britney Jean" single "Perfume": "I fell in love with the way she looks at life," says Spears. "There is a bit of darkness somewhere in there, but it doesn't come across in a frightening way."
