“My dad had me in singing lessons from a really young age and I’ve played piano with my dad growing up, so I have that part me,” she told the Sydney Morning Herald  newspaper. “But it’s a lot pressure, my dad is a really respected soul singer and I feel like that is a lot responsibility. To take it on, I’d have to do it 100 percent and I’m not ready to do that.”

She explained how she doesn’t want fans to think she’s trying to “burn down” her dad’s work. “I have to try and find my own way,” she said. “But I can also never get away from the fact my dad is Lionel Richie either.”

As for Scott, she says the two them are “very lovey-dovey.”

“We are best friends and that is mainly the strongest connection we have. We have always had that best friend connection and from there it has really worked out. I am so happy.”

Sia Richie is currently down under doing press runs for shoe brand Windsor Smith. On a visit to The Morning Show, Sia was baited into talking about her personal life, although an email was reportedly sent out by her team telling the press to not discuss her relationship with Scott Disick. At first, Sia played it cool and answered the questions about living a good life with him and how he introduced her to the shoe brand. 

Host Kylie Gillies then plain and simple asked Sia if she was “happy answering all these questions.”

Sia responded: “I mean, I can’t deny the fact that that is my life. By the way, that’s been my life forever, and it’s nothing new. I’m not upset that I have to answer these questions but there are moments where I want to be my own person and stand as my own person.” She continued,  “And I think that’s actually what drives me to work and do my own thing. I want to be seen as my own person, even though I have all these amazing people in my life that I love so much.”

Speaking with The Daily Telegraph, Lionel Richie spoke about his daughter’s relationship with the Kourtney Kardashian’s ex. From his comments, it doesn’t seem like he has much faith in Scott and Sia’s relationship lasting a long time.

“When you’re 19 you know everything. Is it going to be for life? I don’t know. But for right now it’s just a phase and I’m going to stand real still in the corner, get me a good drink and not make too much noise.” He said.

Despite that, it seems like he has no hard feelings towards Disick.

“From what I met him he’s a very nice guy,” he said, “Then you hang around the reality world, who knows what you are really doing? This is a well-oiled machine, the Kardashian machine. I don’t really know what to think. I told Sia I will have no opinion. I’ll continue to be my cheerful self and move on.”
