Ziegler, 15, is now on tour with the singer.

Sia has defended her collaborative relationship with the 15-year-old dancer Maddie Ziegler, following accusations that she may be exploiting a young girl while shielding herself from the glare of the spotlight.

Since beginning work with Sia, Ziegler has starred in videos for Sia's songs "Chandelier" (which has over 1.7 billion views), "Elastic Heart", "Big Girls Cry", "Cheap Thrills", "The Greatest" and more. From 2011 to 2016, Ziegler appeared in the United States reality show Dance Moms.

Furler began working with Ziegler after spotting her on the United States show Dance Moms and the teenager has now appeared in six music videos, live TV performances and a global tour as what Malkin called the "the fury and the face" of Furler's music.

In response to a story in The Guardian, titled: "The Sia conundrum: if fame is so damaging, why pass it on to a child?".

"Up on the stage in Sydney on Saturday, with Furler concealed and Maddie in the spotlight, it seemed that the superstar was deploying a child in a way that she herself refuses to be", Malkin wrote.

Taking to Twitter, the Australian singer/songwriter wrote: "I do check in with Maddie weekly about whether she wants this, and assure her if she ever wants it to stop it stops".

The secretive singer's mini me, Maddie Ziegler was less private, revealing how much she loved Auckland on her Instagram account, which has over 10 million followers.

She added, on Twitter: "It's a conversation we should all be having".

Sia - full name Sia Furler - suggested in her series of tweets that the question of exposing a child or teen to fame is something that should be considered and weighed by all stage parents, directors and agents.

She continued: "With their children, clients, charges". Maddie was already famous when I discovered her, but I have certainly expanded her exposure and feel responsible for that.
