Sia Opens Up About Exposing Maddie Ziegler to Fame

Sia Opens Up About Exposing Maddie Ziegler to Fame

The Grammy-nominated artist defended her frequent collaborations with the teenager after The Guardian published an article on Wednesday titled, "The Sia conundrum: if fame is so damaging, why pass it on to a child?". In the past, Sia has taken a critical eye to the lack of privacy that comes with fame.

"The grown-up who has seen what fame can do and fears it has, perhaps unwittingly, handed it over to the child instead", writes Malkin. "But, Malkin brings up a good point" along with retweeting the article.

The nimble dancer has since starred in six of Sia's music videos and has been a part of her global tour and represented her numerous times on television.

Audiences at Sia's Mt Smart Stadium concert thought they caught a glimpse of the face of the Aussie International pop star sensation in the reflection of a stage mirror on Tuesday night.

Sia, real name Kate Furler, discovered the talented dancer on reality show Dance Moms and asked if she wanted to appear in one of her videos. "I feel very protective of her and my goal is to empower her in whatever choices she makes", she wrote. It's a conversation we should all be having.

With their children, clients, charges.

Sia said that the teenage dancer was "already famous" before she discovered her but admits she has expanded her exposure.

'I feel very protective of her and my goal is to empower her in whatever choices she makes. And, since teenagers "cannot, or should not be charged with making sound choices", she attempts to "choose the best for her always". But I think this is an important conversation'.

The singer says she does feel "responsible for that" however she has learned that fame affects Maddie differently to her. "If that changes, we stop", she added.

Back in September, Maddie gave an interview to News Corp. in which she gushed about the life-changing call to star in Sia's Chandelier video.

"[Sia] herself might not be willing to marry fame but standing on the stage in front of us, she seemed to be officiating another marriage.to a minor who is yet to learn about, or tame, the monster".
