Sia Debuts Simplistic “Big Girls Cry” Music Video Starring Maddie Ziegler: Watch the Emotional Clip Now!

Sia’s mini-me is at it again! The hit Aussie singer-songerwriter, 39, released the music video for her new single “Big Girls Cry” on Thursday, April 2, and it stars none other than her dancing protege Maddie Ziegler

The 12-year-old Dance Moms star has also been the focus of her previous two music videos for “Chandelier” and “Elastic Heart,” the latter also featuring actor Shia LaBeouf

Wearing her now-signature tan leotard and blonde bob wig, Ziegler spends the majority of the three-and-a-half-minute video only using her hands and facial expressions. In fact, there is no choreography for anything below her shoulders. 

With a neutral black backdrop, the clip is able to convey intense emotion even with its simplistic approach.
