Sia is keeping it real when it comes to her experience with Kanye West.

The notoriously camera-shy "Chandelier" singer-songwriter gave a rare interview to Sydney’s Nova 96.9, in which she dished about what it's like talking to the always candid Kanye.

"I think he's a really interesting artist," she said about the controversial "Only One" rapper, who actually remixed her song "Diamonds" -- a hit she wrote for Rihanna in just 14 minutes. "I find him fascinating to talk to as a person. I rate him as a person. He's an ideas man."

Still, she basically confirmed she was on the receiving end of one of his infamous long-winded rants.

"He's fascinating to have a conversation with, well, mostly you're listening, so ... but it's fascinating," she laughed.

As for her thoughts on Kanye reproducing her hit, she replied, "I don't really care."

"I don't listen to music, this is the truth," the "Titanium" writer surprisingly explained. "I watch television."
