Maddie Ziegler - photo, biography, personal life, news, dancer, actress 2022


Dance prodigy Maddie Ziegler became an Internet sensation in May 2014 after the release of the Chandelier video for the song by Australian Sia. Music lovers will still remember her crazy dance in a dilapidated apartment in a white wig. Since then, the girl has expanded her field of activity - now she is an actress, and a model, and a fashion designer, and a writer.

Childhood and youth

Madison Nicole Ziegler was born on September 30, 2002 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Her childhood was spent in a large and wealthy family of realtors. The main environment was the younger sister Mackenzie Francis, who was born on July 4, 2004, and half older brothers from the previous marriage of Kurt Ziegler, the head of the family.

Maddie's parents divorced in 2011, and already in 2013 her mother Melissa (nee Sulo) married Westinghouse Electric Company vice president Greg Grisoni and took a double surname. The family has expanded even more. From now on, the children of the magnate from a previous marriage, a son and a daughter, also lived in the same house with the dancer.

Ziegler was distracted from family troubles by her main passion - dancing. For the first time, the girl attended a choreography lesson at the age of 2. At 4, she joined the Abby Lee Dance Company, where she trained in tap, ballet, modern dance, acrobatics, jazz, and even air dancing.

Despite the obvious talent for choreography, it was necessary to get a general education. Until 2013, the girl went to Sloan Elementary School, and then transferred to home schooling.

Personal life

In 2017, while still a child, Maddie began dating Jack Kelly, the son of former New York Yankees baseball player Patrick Kelly. The couple was together until mid-2018. She then had a brief romance with Kailand Morris, Stevie Wonder's son and blogger.

In December 2019, the dancer was noticed in the company of Eddie Benjamin, a guy from Australia who dreams of becoming a musician and does everything possible for this. He is older than his chosen one by a year. In March 2020, Ziegler tacitly confirmed their relationship by posting a joint photo on Instagram. By the way, very intimate - young people are hugging in bed.

After that, Maddie and Eddie decided to do something serious - they got a puppy. Yes, and the quarantine, introduced in the spring of 2020 around the world due to the coronavirus pandemic, the guys spent together. The dancer told the Hollywire YouTube channel about this.

In general, Ziegler makes no secret of his personal life. She often posts photos with her lover on Instagram, but refrains from public expression of feelings. The social network feed is full of other colorful pictures. For example, a girl is not shy about posing in a swimsuit.


Abby Lee Miller is famous for her ability to turn talented children into real stars. That is why her dance studio, Abby Lee Dance Company, became the base for the reality show Dance Moms in 2011. Maddy spent 6 seasons in it. Without this TV project, the most significant event in the biography of the dancer would not have happened - meeting Sia.

Seeing Ziegler dancing to the James Bond soundtrack, the singer took to Twitter and left a message with the young talent suggesting they work together. She could not believe her luck for a long time. She repeatedly checked to see if Sia's account was verified, and yet she decided to answer.

In May 2014, the premiere of the video for the song Chandelier took place, which instantly glorified 11-year-old Maddie.

“It was a strange experience. After all, I usually compete at competitions where the academic component is more important than expression, but here I had to literally go crazy. But I was glad to let go of my clamps and feel what Sia meant in her song, ”she later noted in an interview.

Since then, the girl has become Sia's constant companion. In the same year, videos for the songs Big Girls Cry and Elastic Heart were released with her participation. In the latter, Ziegler starred in a duet with Shia LaBeouf. The actor played the role of a tamer, and the dancer - a wild animal. They darted around the cage, one trying to bite, the other lulling. LaBeouf managed to "tame" the girl. She broke out of the cage, but failed to pull her savior out.

Maddy considers Sia her muse not only because of her vocal talent and interesting choreographic ideas, but also because the singer gives freedom. After all, when the dancer stretched out in growth and prepared for new achievements, she did not refer to the terms of the contract. With all her might, Sia contributed to the transformation of Ziegler from "the very girl from the clips" into an independent artist.

One of the side passions of the girl is fashion. In the fall of 2016, the dancer presented the MADDIE clothing collection for babies and teenage girls. And in June 2020, she shared her joy on Instagram:

“Ever since I can remember, I have dreamed of creating a cosmetic line. And now my biggest dream has come true!”

In collaboration with cosmetics brand Morphe, Maddie has released a palette of eye shadows, tinted lip glosses and lipsticks. On Instagram, the dancer noted that makeup for her is one of the ways to express feelings and emotions.

Ziegler also established herself as an actress. She starred in Deadly Beautiful and Pretty Little Liars, and shared the set of The Book of Henry (2017) with up-and-coming young actor Jayden Martell (Liberer).

Behind the artist's shoulders is a small segment of her life, but so significant that it deserves to be immortalized. Therefore, the girl wrote the book Maddie's Diaries (2017), in which she spoke about her creative ascent. The memoir debuted at #4 on The New York Times Best Seller list for teens.

Also in Maddie Ziegler's bibliography was a place for a trilogy on how to survive in the dance world. The cycle consists of the books "Listening" (2017), "Feedback" (2018) and "Competition" (2019).

Maddie Ziegler now

In August-September 2020, Sia's directorial debut, Music, will be released. In it, Maddie played one of the main roles. Filming ended in 2017. To increase the degree of anticipation, in May 2020, the video for the song Together premiered. This is a fragment from the movie. In addition to the dancer, Leslie Odom Jr. and Kate Hudson appear in the frame.

Also in December 2020, with the participation of the girl, the premiere of West Side Story, the musical 19, is scheduled61 years old according to Steven Spielberg. The film stars Ansel Elgort and Rachel Zegler.

In the spring of 2020, Maddie and Mackenzie Ziegler announced a dance tour. Due to the epidemiological situation, the dates had to be shifted, and the exact date of the performances is not yet known.

Interesting facts Both the girls and their mother gravitated towards the choreography. The head of the family saw in this hobby only financial and emotional problems. Constant shooting in TV shows, competitions and auditions brought Kurt to the point that he broke up with his wife and children.

  • Ziegler inherited Polish, German and Italian roots from her parents.
  • In July 2020, Sia revealed in an interview that she "rescued" a girl from Harvey Weinstein, a Hollywood producer who was sentenced to 23 years in prison for sexual harassment. According to the singer, the dancer almost went on a trip with him. “I kept her from the plane that Weinstein was trying to put her on. There are times when my insight really works,” said Sia.
  • Maddie and Millie Bobby Brown, star of Netflix's Stranger Things, are very good friends.
  • Ziegler used to dance 8-9 hours a day. Now she continues to perform fantastic pirouettes with deep drama in Sia's videos and concerts, but she trains much less. When the dancer's fans realized this change, they thought that the reason was her early pregnancy.

    Twenty minutes. Some 1200 seconds. That's how long, according to Sia, it took Maddie Ziegler to learn the iconic choreography for the 2014 video for the song Chandelier, a dance that changed both lives. Ziegler, an 11-year-old prodigy on the reality show Dance Moms, flew to the West Coast from her native Pittsburgh after Sia (a big fan of the show) tweeted her. “It was crazy, a completely new dance language for her. I couldn’t believe how professional, sweet, down to earth and talented she is,” Sia recalls of young Maddy, whose crazy dance to a song about parties and alcoholism they filmed in a dilapidated apartment. Maddie was wearing a white wig and dirty nude tights.

    Six years later, Chandelier's views on YouTube exceeded 2.2 billion - almost a third of the world's population has watched the video. The hit launched the singer's name into the stratosphere of success and was the beginning of her collaboration with Ziegler, who recently celebrated her 18th birthday. “We came into each other’s lives by the will of the universe,” says the 44-year-old native of Adelaide, Australia. After that clip, the young dancer became the double of the pop star, allowing her to become "invisible" - they put on the same wigs on the red carpet, only Sia's face is always covered with bangs, a bow, a mask. Maddie danced on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and Saturday Night Live and appeared in videos for Elastic Heart, The Greatest and Cheap Thrills. The duo's latest project, a film by Sia Music starring Ziegler, was the occasion for the singer's first fashion shoot in five years. It was styled by Nicola Formichetti, famous for his work with Lady Gaga.

    On the eve of the shoot, we speak with Sia via zoom: the singer is reclining on her bed at her home in Palm Springs - this is how, according to her, all her important calls and meetings go. Music, which is due out in Australia in January but hopefully gets at least online worldwide, is her boldest creation yet. And, it seems, the most long-awaited. She came up with this story over ten years ago and filmed it on the streets of Los Angeles almost four years ago. It's about a teenage girl named Music with an autism spectrum disorder who is cared for by Zoo's half-sister, who is a drug dealer but doesn't use herself. We will see the world through the eyes of Music, including with the help of musical interludes in the style of Sia's videos, where bright colors, expressive textures and choreography convey a different, sensual experience of knowing the world.

    While the singer was hatching the idea for the film, her career took several sharp turns. After "mediocre success", as she herself says, of her early music, Sia moved to the United States in 2007, where she released the album We Are Born, which included the hit Clap Your Hands, which received two awards from the Australian Recording Association ARIA out of four nominations. Then came Titanium, recorded with David Guetta, and Rihanna's blockbuster Diamonds, which Sia wrote in parallel with her own songs and which earned her nine Grammy nominations and many ARIA statuettes.


    In 2016, Sia divorced her husband, film producer Erik Anders Lang, and all her friends began to convince her to make her film. “It was like I jumped off a cliff, and this experience was my baptism of fire. Shooting a film is not much different from filming a music video, except that it lasts much longer and is more difficult to organize: you have to keep the schedules of the actors together all the time. To be honest, I still cannot understand how filmmakers manage to finish at least one film! After all, to record a song, one to five people are enough, ”she grins.

    I've hated musicals since I was a kid, so I decided to make a musical film so I wouldn't have to dislike it myself. brother, Shia LaBeouf auditioned. And then the hero became a heroine at all, Maddie, who has practically no words, was perfect for her part, because “the world of a character with an autism spectrum disorder is actually easier to express in dance.” And the role of Zu was given to Kate Hudson.


    Sia, as Ziegler's godmother, says she is grateful to the dancer's mother, who "allowed me to poke my nose into their family's affairs and take on the role of a second mother." However, Sia's maternal instinct didn't stop there. She adopted two 18-year-old boys last year. How did it happen? “I am a fan of reality shows and documentaries, in one of them I saw my future son. And immediately I thought: “It can’t be that he is completely alone. My God! I will find him and become his mother. And so she did. He asked if he could take a friend, and I said: “I just have two free rooms, why not?” I know how crazy that sounds,” Sia laughs. “So suddenly, out of nowhere, I had two teenage sons. My God, for the last year all I've done is buy condoms and say, “Please don't forget them. Please". Seriously though, this is definitely the best decision I've ever made in my life. And one of the most difficult. But I feel such a surge of love that I imagine doing it again. Next time I'm going to take care of the little ones. Maybe the children of an addicted mother: I could help care for them until she returns to normal or finds a foster family. If I can do it, I will feel like a superman.”

    The best acts of kindness are done in secret

    The singer's inner circle is well aware of her kindness and generosity, the rest began to guess about it last year when she made a number of donations - public and anonymous. For Thanksgiving, Sia came up with an alter ego of Cece, who allegedly won the lottery, and paid everyone for purchases at the local Walmart department store. She gave $100,000 to her favorite participant in the reality show Survivor, who didn't get the grand prize, the singer was touched by his love for animals. She intends to donate $100,000 to support the Black Lives Matter movement; she continues to demand justice in the murders of Breonna Taylor and Elijah McClain. In August, on Sydney Radio, the singer donated the same amount to help Australians in need. “I have always been generous with money, and yes, now my only goal is to try to make the lives of others better,” the singer confirms without a hint of coquetry or pride. “Especially the ones I don't know. In general, the best good deeds are done in secret.”

    I do commercials for tea and things like that, but I get good money for songs and definitely consider myself well-to-do. If you think about it, I will never spend as much as I already have or how much I still earn.” According to the singer, royalties from her biggest hits Diamonds and Titanium provide her with a guaranteed income for life, which sets her apart from other celebrities who may not have "the ability to handle money so easily."

    If we're interesting enough to be cover heroes, it's our duty to be honest about what's going on in our heads and not just sell the dream

    Not that Sia can even be compared to other stars. She does not show her face during performances, she is always blatantly honest - a quality that is less and less common in the world of public people. This is especially noticeable in her willingness to speak frankly about past traumas and her mental health. “I would still have to start telling the truth,” she recalls of her decision. “I created an insane indie pop character that, after 15 years in the industry, I could no longer sustain. I had a nervous breakdown, I started using drugs, but, fortunately, I finally quit. In general, it was necessary to slow down and work through the problems that have been following me since childhood and which have been aggravated due to life in show business. When I went to see a psychotherapist five years ago, I was suffering from so-called chronic disorganization and complex post-traumatic stress syndrome…” She pauses. The stars are the same as everyone else. But if we're interesting enough to be on the cover, then I think it's our duty to be honest about who we are and what's going on in our heads. Because just selling a dream is wrong. If you ask kids what they want to be when they grow up, eight out of ten say "celebrity" and that's scary. They believe that it will solve their problems, and I also believed that when I became famous, it would heal my psyche.”


    Sia says she has been feeling really good lately despite suffering from Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, complex regional pain syndrome, and cubital tunnel syndrome She suffers from chronic pain in her limbs and joints, plus fatigue (which is the reason she conducts all her meetings from bed). Sia jokes that she's almost retired because her "body has worked 500 years ahead", but immediately turns the conversation to music that's out or about to be released. This is the Del Mar song featuring Ozuna and Doja Cat, and Let's Love, inspired by 1980's track with David Guetta (their ninth), Music soundtrack, as well as a compilation of songs she originally wrote for the film but didn't use. Plus a new album, which is scheduled for release in 2021.

    Living in the present moment is not bad at all. He suits me perfectly

    Sia does not mention the single Together, which was released in May 2020. Written specifically for Music, the pop composition, full of hope and positivity, seemed like a collective response to the hardships that befell humanity. Sia may not have thought that the song would become a musical vaccine, but she managed to give the world a breath of optimism.

    “Living in the present moment is not bad at all,” Sia says. “He suits me perfectly. I live like an ordinary person, although I have the luxury of a regular income, while most suffer due to the pandemic and crisis.
