'Dance Mom's Maddie Ziegler Explains the Incredible Story About How She Became Sia's Muse

'Dance Mom's Maddie Ziegler Explains the Incredible Story About How She Became Sia's Muse

Maddie Ziegler stopped by Build Series at AOL Tuesday (March 7) in New York City to discuss her brand-new book and how she was lucky enough to become Sia‘s twin!

The 14-year-old dancer, now author of The Maddie Diaries: A Memoir, has a lot going on, despite what people think.

“I’m only 14, but I have a lot of things to talk about,” she laughed about people who question why she wrote a memoir at such a young age, during her AOL Build interview.

Perhaps the most astonishing thing, though, is how she landed the role in Sia‘s “Chandelier” video, which lead to three more videos and a career launched into the stratosphere!

“She tweeted me,” Maddie explained.

Can you believe, it was literally as simple as that?!

You'll Fall In Love With Dove Cameron's Faux Bob at Vanity Fair's Young Hollywood Party!

Dove Cameron went short for the Vanity Fair and L’Oreal Paris Toast to Young Hollywood last night (February 21) in Los Angeles.

Just moments after returning to social media, the Liv and Maddie actress showed off her shorter hairstyle inside the bash, alongside Maddie Ziegler, and Ariel Winter, Emily Robinson, Yara Shahidi, Rowan Blanchard, Sofia Carson, Annalise Basso, Cameron Monaghan and Natalie Alyn Lind.

Although we love Dove with the shorter hair, she proved last night that it was just a wig.

FYI: Dove is wearing an Elizabeth and James dress. Emily is wearing a Red Valentino dress, Nicholas Kirkwood heels, and a Jimmy Choo bag. Normani is wearing a Tracy Reese dress, Brian Atwood shoes, a Lena Erziak bag, and Swarovski jewelry. Rowan is wearing a Giambattista Valli dress. Yara is wearing Chanel. Ariel is wearing a House of CB skirt.

Chloe Lukasiak Dishes On Friendship With Maddie Ziegler & 'Dance Moms' Cast

Chloe Lukasiak Dishes On Friendship With Maddie Ziegler & 'Dance Moms' Cast

We hate when really good friendships fall apart — Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez come to our minds fast — and now Chloe Lukasiak and Maddie Ziegler too.

“Not as much anymore,” Chloe shares of her friendships with the Dance Moms girls after leaving the show in 2014. “Nia and I have always been close, but I don’t get to see Maddie and Brooke that often.”

She adds, “It’s just hard to stay close when you’re traveling all over the world. We’re not as close as we used to be, but that’s just kind of what happens, unfortunately.”

Maddie also commented on her friendship with Chloe in a recent interview, saying, “We haven’t really talked to each other and things have changed between us. It’s really sad because I obviously miss her.”

That totally sucks! We hope that they can reconnect at some point!

ICYMI: Catch Chloe as she surprises everyone in the Dance Moms season finale!

Exclusive: It's NOT Maddie Ziegler! Meet the Young Star in Sia's New 'Never Give Up' Video

Exclusive: It's NOT Maddie Ziegler! Meet the Young Star in Sia's New 'Never Give Up' Video

Dancer extraordinaire Maddie Ziegler has almost become synonymous with Sia, having become her muse in 2014 with the premiere of her “Chandelier” video.

The two went on to release five videos together, including “Chandelier,” “Elastic Heart,” “Cheap Thrills,” “Big Girls Cry” and “The Greatest.”

In each video, Maddie dons Sia‘s signature wig — either in two-toned black and white or platinum blonde.

So, naturally, when Sia released her lyric video for “Never Give Up” on Tuesday, it was immediately reported that it was Maddie playing the lead role.

Easy mistake! The lead character is wearing a nylon mask, so you can’t see her face.

But if you look closely, you can see that the dancer is younger than 14-year-old Maddie.

In fact, this upcoming star’s name is Prymrr (pronounced “premiere). She is an 11-year old dancer, actor (and rapper!), and we think you’re going to love her.

Check out our exclusive Q&A:

JJ: Congratulations on being featured in Sia‘s new video. So amazing! How did you hear about the project and what was the audition like?

PRYMRR: We saw the posting for a lost girl for an RCA mega-artist music video. They recognized me when I got there, from a Pussy Riot video I did.

'Stranger Things' Star Millie Bobby Brown Spills on Sleepovers With Maddie Ziegler!

'Stranger Things' Star Millie Bobby Brown Spills on Sleepovers With Maddie Ziegler!

Millie Bobby Brown gets serious in a photo from her shoot for Dazed magazine’s Winter 2016 issue, which also features her Stranger Things co-star Finn Wolfhard.

The 12-year-old actress and 13-year-old actor opened up about auditioning for the show, what they want to tell their characters and the upcoming season.

Millie, on what she would tell her character Eleven: “Don’t give up, that’s it. She’s always trying to give up, but she can’t. But maybe one day she will! You never know.”

Finn, on auditioning for the show from his bedroom: “I did it sick from bed. Just on my phone, then I emailed it. Matt and Ross [Duffer] loved it, and they made me do it again. Finally, I came to LA and met them.

Millie, on hanging out with Maddie Ziegler: “We just had a sleepover. It was funny, because she videotaped me and I was dancing around her room singing ‘The Greatest’ and she was like, ‘Millie, shh – stop it!’ because I tried to dance like her and I’m really not good.”

Finn, on what’d he wants to see in season two: “I’d love to see myself a little heartbroken. You know, because Elle’s been gone for a year, so I’d love to see him [have to] conquer being a little sad, a little depressed.”
