Sia Addresses Claim Fame Could Be 'Damaging' For Her Muse Maddie Ziegler

The piece published in Britain's The Guardian on Wednesday was titled'The Sia conundrum if fame is so damaging why pass it on to a child

In the article Malkin argues that although Sia deliberately eschews fame because she views it as damaging, she puts a minor in the spotlight in her place. In the past, Sia has taken a critical eye to the lack of privacy that comes with fame.

Sia and Maddie Ziegler perform on stage together. "But, Malkin brings up a good point" along with retweeting the article. The article argued that since Sia chooses to wear oversized wigs when appearing in public, largely due to her own personal issues related to the backlash of fame, it's a odd choice to place that spotlight on a child performer, who is the main visual element of the singer's current tour.

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

The Chandelier singer spoke candidly about how Maddie is her priority and if she chooses to stop then she does, which sounds fair enough. "And as she said, it's a conversation we should all be having".

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. 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. It's a conversation we should all be having. "I feel very protective of her and my goal is to empower her in whatever choices she makes", Sia continued.

Sia - full name Sia Furler - suggested in her series of tweets that the question of exposing a child or teen to fame is something that should be considered and weighed by all stage parents, directors and agents.

Google introduced its Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphone back in October this year and made them available in India last month. Apart from these, the "biggest ever" iPhone X sale in the country will be held on Flipkart at 12pm IST, the company claims.

The singer said this is "an important conversation" to be had, regarding young stars in the spotlight.

"What I learned from Maddie is that fame affects her differently than how it affected me".

Posing on a beach in front of Rangitoto before the concert on Tuesday, Ziegler told her followers she was "a little bit obsessed" with New Zealand. "If that changes, we stop", she added.

It's reinforcing to hear Sia's own thoughts on the situation and that she trusts Maddie to make a call on how much she works.

"I didn't know exactly who she was that well, being 11, ' she said".
