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!

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!

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.”

Maddie Ziegler Says Sia Helped Her Feel Comfortable in Her Own Skin

Maddie Ziegler Says Sia Helped Her Feel Comfortable in Her Own Skin

Maddie Ziegler is opening up about her good pal Sia!

The 13-year-old So You Think You Can Dance: The Next Generation judge has appeared in Sia‘s videos for “Big Girls Cry,” “Elastic Heart” and “Chandelier” and performed with her at the 2015 Grammy Awards.

“I’ve learned a lot from her,” Maddie told PeopleStyle. “She’s definitely helped me feel comfortable in my own skin. I always had a fear my teeth were too big, and I wanted to fix them. But she told me not to. She said, ‘It’s what makes you you.’ She always reminds me to stay true to myself.”

Maddie added, “I can’t be perfect at everything and I don’t want to look perfect because I learned to be comfortable and flaws are actually beautiful. Even though she might be older than me, we are best friends. Sometimes she is like one of my closest friends, and I know I’m 13, so it’s really weird to say, but it’s true.”
