Dance Moms Cast Update: Maddie Ziegler Reaches 1 Billion Views on YouTube

As a tribute for “Dance Moms” star Maddie Ziegler’s phenomenal achievement in YouTube with her one billion views, The Telegraph shared its exclusive interview with the rising child star. Read on for the highlights.

With Sia, Ziegler’s “Chandelier” music video on YouTube already has more than 716 million views. Interestingly, Ziegler admitted that she was afraid of the empty hallway in the music video. She begged for someone to accompany her near the area.


“I was like, ‘Could someone please come out here with me?’” Ziegler said.

The next video of Sia’s trilogy is “Elastic Heart” with Shia LaBeouf. The video has gotten more than 273 million views. Ziegler admitted that she was aware all along that some people would never get the video’s real message. She was not surprised that the video became controversial because of the alleged pedophilia concept. However, she explained that she was a tiny wolf ready to attack LaBeouf despite her small stature.

Lastly, “Big Girls Cry” has more than 35 million views. This time, Ziegler was not dancing. She expressed intense facial expressions to interpret the lyrics. She shared that Sia was always concerned whether she is comfortable with a video’s content. Obviously, she was a trooper and could handle anything.

Ziegler has been admitting in most of her interviews about her close relationship with Sia. The phenomenal singer experienced telling her to cut her fake nails for the sake of preserving her youthful image. Ziegler also loved to visit Sia’s house because of her dogs and praised Sia’s humility.

“It feels like I’ve known Sia for my whole entire life,” Ziegler admitted.

Ziegler admitted that she still prioritizes dancing. She shared that she was just two years old when she had her first dance recital. She even cried after leaving the stage because she wanted to go back and dance. Her journey with Abby Lee Miller started after her mother, Melissa, decided to enroll her in a dance studio because of her newfound passion.

“Dance Moms” Season 5 airs every Tuesday at 9:00 p.m. on Lifetime.
