RIP CHANDELIER: Filipina bathroom singer butchers “Chandelier” by Sia
A 30-second self-made video of a Filipina belting Sia’s 2014 mega hit “Chandelier” inside a bathroom has gone viral on the microblogging site Twitter as of Thursday midnight (Manila time).
The video was first uploaded in the account of user @clingyboypren. Twitter users were so amused by the lady’s performance that the hashtag #RIPChandelier. Watch the video below:
Will this still-unidentified lady become the next YouTube sensation a la Alyssa Bonaobra? Abangan. :p
Incidentally, it must be noted that Sia Furler, the singer-composer behind “Chandelier,” has steadfastly refused to show her face while performing this song publicly.
In an article for Billboard magazine, Sia explained that she does not enjoy being famous, which according to her is similar to having a mother-in-law asking her whether she’s “so unattractive under those clothes that her son/daughter doesn’t want to fuck me anymore,” or if she’s “so dumb I don’t know what a dick is and how to use it.”
