After attending one of the singer’s recent concerts, Bonnie Malkin wrote an article for The Guardian, titled, “The Sia conundrum: if fame is so damaging, why pass it on to a child?”

The writer discussed how the Grammy nominee stays almost hidden behind her concealing wigs, instead opting for the young Dance Moms alum to be the face of the performances.

“[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,” said Malkin. “Not to a ‘perfect blank slate’ but to a minor who is yet to learn about, or tame, the monster.”

It is also interesting that Sia felt that Shia Labeouf was the only dancer who play that role in her video. The singer’s decision to use Maddie Ziegler in her work has been criticised by some, claiming the 12-year-old dancer is portrayed in a sexualised way in Sia ’s videos.

Melissa says that Sia is very protective of Maddie : "They're like sisters, I love how they snuggle together." Indeed, a sharp-suited man sits outside the door of her publicist's office. I definitely want to be a triple threat." Ziegler says that she doesn't feel that she has made it yet.

Responding Wednesday via several tweets, Sia revealed Malkin’s concerns are something she often thinks about herself. “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.

Despite being only 12-years-old, Maddie Ziegler is already hugely famous. I love dancing to slower songs such as Sia and Sam Smith. Do you prefer dancing when you feel happy or sad? Have you always been a fan of her music?

Maddie Ziegler on Seventeen - admits " I feel so free" since leaving Dance Moms and talks about the pressure Abby Lee Miller placed on her . Kenya Moore & Cynthia Bailey Have A Secret Project In The Works . Maddie doesn’t fault Abby for applying that pressure, and defends her teacher, although

“Maddie was already famous when I discovered her, but I have certainly expanded her exposure and feel responsible for that. I feel very protective of her and my goal is to empower her in whatever choices she makes. Some would argue a teenager 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. But I think this is an important conversation.”

She concluded, “What I learned from Maddie is that fame affects her differently than how it affected me. I can only trust that she is telling me the truth. If that changes, we stop.”

Representatives for Sia and Ziegler did not immediately respond to EW’s request for comment.

MLB trade rumors: With Dee Gordon dealt, which players Marlins could move next?We all knew this was a possibility, with the new ownership group — featuring Derek Jeter as its face — talking about cutting costs from the moment they took over. It’s not just the trade of Gordon that shows this group is serious about trimming payroll, it’s the fact that the Mariners are paying every penny of the $38 million Gordon was owed. The Marlins could have paid some of that cost and gotten better prospects in return but didn’t.
