During the interview, Sia reflected on when she was asked to perform on Saturday Night Live! three times in one year. One such time, Donald Trump, a then president-hopeful, hosted the show.
Sia continued to talk about the experience. She said that after the show, she went backstage and heard Donald Trump say her name. He said,
“We’ve got to get a photo!”
Ivanka stood behind him with a camera.
Despite being a people-pleasure, Sia knew that his views would be a direct violation of her fans’. She told him,
“Actually, do you mind if we don’t? I have a lot of queer and Mexican fans, and I don’t want them to think that I support your views.”
“Oh, no problem. Then don’t.”
She went on to say that he didn’t seem offended and that he viewed her response as “protecting [her] brand”.
But after her interaction with Trump, Sia returned to her dressing room and had “crazy diarrhea”.
Sia has previously criticized Donald Trump regarding the separation of immigrant children from their families.
Please please please return the children to their parents. From a psychological perspective you are causing an attachment disturbance that will affect them for the rest of their lives. Very traumatic. @realDonaldTrump
