Maddie Ziegler Talks Her Relationship With Sia & Not Feeling Famous With Nylon

Maddie Ziegler poses next to her grand piano for the May issue of Nylon, out on newsstands now in the US!

Here’s what the 12-year-old dancer had to share with the mag:

On her friendship with Sia: “I love hanging out with her because she’s super funny and is always having a laugh with everyone. When I’m with her, I have no worries in the world.”

On the advice Sia gave her: “She said that when she was younger, she was a songwriter and getting burnt out because she kept going and going. So she always tells me to make sure I’m having fun, because she doesn’t want me to keep working and working and then start hating what I do.”

On not feeling famous: “Everyone’s like, ‘Oh, you must live in L.A., the glamorous life,’ and I really don’t. I’m in a small house, in Pittsburgh, in the snow. My friends and I on the show, we don’t consider ourselves to be famous. We act like normal kids, but sometimes it’s hard for us if we go out for ice cream, or go shopping at the mall, because a big group of people will stop us and ask for photos. We just want to live normal lives, but that’s hard to do sometimes.”

    Next to her “Grand” piano… Really?!
    Have pianos become so rare, and journalists so musically-challenged, that any small piano- like a spinet- becomes grand?
    Maddie may be grand but not her piano.
