The 15-year-old dancer has shared snaps to her Instagram of her and some friends frolicking at Auckland’s Mission Bay, accompanied by the caption: “a little obsessed with new zealand and these beautiful girlssss”.
Kiwi fans seemed to be both surprised and excited to see the star on our shores:
“Hope New Zealand treats you well!!! Wish I could meet you,” one fan wrote.
“If you’re staying in Mission Bay make sure to try an ice cream sundae from Movenpick. They’re sooo good,” another suggested.
Maddie has been collaborating with Sia for a few years now, appearing in her videos including ‘Elastic Heart’, ‘Chandelier’ and ‘Cheap Thrills’ as Sia’s mini-me. Maddie often appears during Sia’s live performances, too – hence her presence in Auckland for Sia’s concert tonight.
