Sia Can't Stop Geeking Out Over a Tweet From Whoopi Goldberg
By Desiree Murphy
Sia has no chill -- and we can't blame her!
On Thursday, "The Greatest" singer took to Twitter to express her excitement about Oxygen's newest reality modeling TV show, Strut, which solely features transgender artists. She was not, however, expecting a response from the series' executive producer, Whoopi Goldberg.
"In love with the new reality tv show STRUT about our trans brothers and sisters trying to make it in the modeling biz," Sia tweeted. "Love you guys!"
A few hours later, Goldberg retweeted the 40-year-old singer, then shared the following message: "@Sia First.. We adore you & yr talent, I can say ask so thank you for your kind words about our show, Strut & love that your watching it."
First.. We adore you & yr talent, I can say ask so thank you for your kind words about our show,Strut & love that your watching it.🙋🏾
A starstruck Sia immediately chimed back in, writing, "I am one of your greatest fans, I dressed like you from jumping Jack flash for my entire youth, the color purple shaped my moral compass, and sister act made me love gospel. I love you, you are a part of me, and getting this tweet is momentous."
"@WhoopiGoldberg thank you for making this great show that's both light and fun and meaningful and moving!" she added.
And it seems like Goldberg is just as big a fan of the Australian songwriter!
"Bird Set Free & California Dreaming r two that ur voice paints, ur artistry is thrilling, whatever u got from me you've given back 2me," Goldberg, 60, shared in a series of tweets. "I am your fan and yr student, thank you 4 being U."

Back in August, Sia's dance muse, Maddie Ziegler, gushed over what it was like working with the singer just a few weeks before the duo hit the road for the North American leg of Sia's Nostalgic for the Present world tour.
