Maddie Ziegler celebrates her sweet 16 with Sia, who gifts her a brand new Audi
Sia, who skyrocketed Maddie Ziegler’s career by making her the star in her music videos, also shared a couple pictures on her Instagram from the dancer's 16th birthday
Dancer Maddie Ziegler couldn't have asked for a better birthday, as she was presented with a swanky new car by singer Sia on turning 16 during the weekend.
“Happy Birthday to my most special noonoo @MaddieZiegler,” Sia captioned a photo of herself giving Ziegler a massive hug.
On Monday, the dancer shared a picture on her Instagram handle, of herself with a brand new white Audi Q3 truck, which starts at $33,000, the day after her birthday. She captioned the picture saying, "sweet sixteen ❤ can’t believe this car is actually mine!!”
The 'Dance Moms' alum even posted a few more pictures from her birthday, one of herself being tackled by Sia and the other with Stevie Wonder‘s son Kailand Morris.
To celebrate her birthday, she wore a bodycon black dress with red and white stripes.
Sia, who skyrocketed Ziegler’s career by making her the star of many of her music videos, also shared a couple of pictures on her Instagram from the dancer's birthday. She even included a photo of the duo huggin,g and a couple of clips of them doing some dance moves across the car's hood.
The bonhomie is not new, and the duo shares a very close bond with one another. Last year in December, the 'Thundercloud' singer even posted several tweets defending Ziegler when some people criticized the singer for showing Ziegler's face in her videos and not hers.
Sia replied that they were close and that she checks up on Ziegler every week.
“I do check in with Maddie weekly about whether she wants this, and assure her if she ever wants it to stop it stops,” she wrote. “Maddie was already famous when I discovered her, but I have certainly expanded her exposure and feel responsible for that. I feel very protective of her and my goal is to empower her in whatever choices she makes. Some would argue a teenager can’t or shouldn’t be charged with making sound choices for themselves and so I do try to choose the best for her always. But I think this is an important conversation," she said in a statement.
She concluded, “What I learned from Maddie is that fame affects her differently than how it affected me. I can only trust that she is telling me the truth. If that changes, we stop.”
