After attending one of the singer’s recent concerts, Bonnie Malkin wrote an article for The Guardian, titled, “The Sia conundrum: if fame is so damaging, why pass it on to a child?”

The writer discussed how the Grammy nominee stays almost hidden behind her concealing wigs, instead opting for the young Dance Moms alum to be the face of the performances.

“[Sia] herself might not be willing to marry fame but standing on the stage in front of us, she seemed to be officiating another marriage,” said Malkin. “Not to a ‘perfect blank slate’ but to a minor who is yet to learn about, or tame, the monster.”

Sia might hide her face — but she isn't hiding her feelings . The popular singer defended her role in propelling 15-year-old dancer Maddie Ziegler into the spotlight when Sia herself doesn't love fame. I feel very protective of her and my goal is to empower her in whatever choices she makes.

Sia hides behind her signature face-obscuring wig, but when someone accused her of not shielding 15 year-old muse Maddie Ziegler from the spotlight, she had plenty to say. I feel very protective of her and my goal is to empower her in whatever choices she makes.

“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 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.”

Representatives for Sia and Ziegler did not immediately respond to EW’s request for comment.
