Sia added that her youngest son is still "processing" his own trauma, but she remains hopeful that "he can manage."

"It took me until I was 41, I think, to deal with my early developmental trauma," she said. "I don't want that for them, but you can't force anyone.

"Trauma has to come out when you're in a safe environment, when you're ready — psychologically ready. So, I'm just trying to do my best for them."

The "Chandelier" hitmaker later got emotional while talking about her sons, revealing that they played a massive part in teaching her an important lesson about race and privilege.

"I'm embarrassed that it took me to adopt two Black sons to really understand what they go through on a daily basis," she tearfully confessed. "There are things to do. We can actually act, and we can actually try and get justice for Breonna Taylor and Elijah McClain."

"I've very scared for my children. I love them very much," she continued. "I've only experienced white privilege and I know that now. I am fully aware of how much I've experienced white privilege, and now I have these two Black sons who tell me how it really is."

Looking back at her transition to motherhood in the past year, Sia said she's "grateful" to have a successful career that can provide support and care for her kids.

"I have reached my professional and my personal goals, and I'm at a very interesting place," she said. "I think being … able to be a compassionate and nonjudgemental mother to my two sons, and to have the resources to really help them, I've now reached my personal goals."
