Sia's mini-me 'obsessed' with NZ

Sia's mini-me 'obsessed' with NZ

Sia saw Malkin's words and responded rather thoughtfully via Twitter on Wednesday (Dec. 6).

The Australian artist acknowledged it's a question she has "often" asked herself since Ziegler, now 15, achieved global stardom thanks to her roles in Sia's music videos. Maddie's Dance Moms platform gave her a voice and presence within the industry but Sia has really grown that. In a thread, she reveals that she often thinks about this subject herself and says that she's protective of Maddie, her goal to empower her.

Singer SIA and dancer Maddie Ziegler perform on stage at Mt Smart Stadium, Dec. 5, 2017, in Auckland, New Zealand. Sia has faced some criticism because of that in the past, especially after the emotionally charged video for "Elastic Heart, " where Ziegler danced with actor Shia LaBeouf - which many felt hypersexualized the then-12-year-old.

"I do check in with Maddie weekly about whether she wants this, and assure her if she ever wants it to stop it stops", she wrote.

'I feel very protective of her and my goal is to empower her in whatever choices she makes. She said, "Can't or shouldn't be charged with making sound choices for themselves and so I do try to choose the best for her always". She went on to explain that she believes that young artists, directors, parents, and agents should have regular conversations about fame and its price on the child's life.

Maddie Ziegler, left, and singer/songwriter Sia attend the 57th Annual Grammy Awards at the Staples Center, Feb. 8, 2015, in Los Angeles. Sia also told fans that she has learned Ziegler doesn't appear to be affected by fame in the same way she is, and that she can only take Ziegler's insistence that she's feeling comfortable at face value.

ICYMI on Tuesday, The Guardian published an opinion piece calling out the Cheap Thrills singer for throwing the 15-year-old into the world of Hollywood when the singer has openly admitted to hating fame and everything that comes along with it. I can only trust that she is telling me the truth.

'Up on the stage in Sydney on Saturday, with Furler concealed and Maddie in the spotlight, it seemed that the superstar was deploying a child in a way that she herself refuses to be. "If that changes, we stop", she added.
