Sia’s ‘Chandelier’ Video Is The Next ‘Call Your Girlfriend’

Creepy cool.

Despite the word “chandelier” being right there in the title of Sia’s soaring single, the video for the jam is more “Girl, Interrupted” than “party girl.” Yup — it’s downright crazy.

Standing in for Sia in the vid — co-directed by Sia and Daniel Askill — is Maddie Ziegler, the 11-year-old star of Lifetime’s “Dance Moms.”

The tiny dancer, kitted out in a Sia wig, channels some wild lunatic spirit, throwing herself around a crumbling house featuring a fridge covered in newspaper clippings and Rorschach Test-like windows.

Add to the general disrepair the series of seriously creepy curtseys with which Ziegler caps off the video and you’ve got the weirdest/best dance video since Robyn’s “Call Your Girlfriend.”
