"This article poses a question I have asked myself often," Sia tweeted.
She also said that she checks in with Ziegler on a weekly basis to ensure the artistic collaboration is something the dance prodigy actually wants. “If she ever wants it to stop, it stops,” Sia wrote.
Sia also said that this level of concern should be typical of all people who work with children.
“I feel very protective of [Ziegler] and my goal is to empower her in whatever choices she makes,” she wrote.
Although Maddie was already famous due to her role on Dance Moms, her career has flourished on an entirely new level since she started dancing for Sia.
Sia then noted that teenagers may not necessarily be able to make the best decisions for themselves at all times.
However, there’s only so much that Sia can do, and she seems to be doing it very well.
In the end, it really comes down to what Ziegler feels she can handle (as well as input from Sia, her parents, and other adults in her life whose opinions she values).
Sia summarized her thoughts by explaining that she and Ziegler are two different people.
Sia didn’t want fame, but Ziegler seems to be handling it with aplomb.
Above all, Ziegler needs the freedom to make whatever decisions are best for her, and it seems like Sia is providing her with the space and opportunity to do just that.
People are super impressed with Sia's response.
It’s so refreshing to see someone in the entertainment industry who truly seems to have performers’ best interests at heart. So many managers and talent agents could take a page from Sia’s book.
We wish both Sia and Ziegler the best with their respective careers!
