Dance Moms Cast Update: Maddie Ziegler Reveals the Struggle of Being Famous

Dance Moms” star, Abby Lee Miller’s favorite and Sia’s muse Maddie Ziegler revealed that fame is slowly taking its toll on her supposedly normal life. Read on for details.

The “Chandelier” icon emphasized that she is still trying to live a “real life.” In an exclusive interview with Nylon, Ziegler admitted that she and her “Dance Moms” co-stars do not consider themselves to be popular girls and claimed that they are just like any other normal girls. However, she slowly noticed that it became difficult for them to hang out or shop at the mall. She described how a crowd would stop them just to take a photo with them.

“We just want to live normal lives, but that’s hard to do sometimes,” Ziegler told Nylon.

Ziegler also revealed that “Dance Moms” was meant to be a “docu-series” with only six episodes. She said that it was not even certain whether Lifetime would air it. However, the reality show became an international phenomenon as it progressed for four years until Season 5.

Although Ziegler was considered an “old soul,” there are times that her true age really shows. Nylon also shared that Ziegler was going through each garment for the shoot. It was when she suddenly spotted a Britney Spears inspired shirt with the statement, “Oops, I did it again.”

“Is it a song or something?” Ziegler asked.

Ziegler was only two years old when “Oops, I Did It Again” hit the charts. Despite the blunder, Ziegler and Spears have some things in common. Like Spears, Ziegler is a rising child star. She admitted that she really wants to be an actress so she joined auditions. She preferred starring in scripted television shows and films. She also loved to sing and dreamed to perform in Broadway.

“Dance Moms” Season 5 airs every Tuesday at 9:00 p.m. on Lifetime. Ziegler is one of the members of the popular dance group Abby Lee Dance Company (ALDC).
