Workout Wednesday: Sia's "Chandelier"

Ok, so, I have a problem....I can't stop listening to this song! It's so dang good and is now on constant rotation on my "running" playlist : ) It's so powerful I swear it makes me run faster, LOL! If you don't have it on there already, this is one that you'll want to add to your workout playlist.

I LOVE the video too and think it's so creatively creepy (if that makes sense). They did a fantastic job with it but it's now a bit controversial because it features 11-year-old, cutie petutie, Maddie Ziegler from Dance Moms wearing a nude leotard and some people are outraged over it. It was probably done for simplicity but nonetheless some folks are upset. Regardless, the song is amazing and I can't remember the last time I listened to a song over and over and over again like I have this one. I get goosebumps every time I listen to it.

And HOLY SMOKES can Maddie dance or what?!?!?! She's got some major skills and is destined for dance greatness I'm sure. This video has almost 46 million views now (I've probably contributed heavily to this number) so I think Maddie is now officially an internet star and professional dancer. Congrats Maddie!

Check out Maddie's interview for Vulture on how she landed the role of "mini Sia" for the music video. And just in case you missed it, here the link to Maddie and Sia recreation of the video on The Ellen Show. It was pretty spectacular.

Btw, what do you think of the video? Do you agree that it's inappropriate for an 11-year-old to wear the leotard that Maddie wore?
