    They don't create any art, and if you think a creative music video is art your mistaken. Most don't even write their own lyrics! They hire a lyricist! So they are not creating an art with words!
    Anyone else thought about this?

    The same could be said about art. Go into any up-market high street gallery and the much of the stuff they are selling isn't art in the true sense. Just original pieces based on a template that the artist churns out one after another. They all look the same but slightly different.

    This is an artist. Sia writes her own music. This music video has a strong meaning behind it.

    The same way books and poetry are art.
