Maddie Ziegler isn’t ready to give up the limelight but the “Dance Moms” alum admits she sometimes misses just being able to be a kid.

Speaking to Us Weekly following the launch of her first book, “The Maddie Diaries: A Memoir,” the former Lifetime star responded to any inquiry about whether she would ever quit fame and try out public school for a change.

“There are times when I wish I could be a normal kid,” the 14-year-old tells the magazine in their March 20 issue. “When I’m hanging out with my friends and people come up to me, it can be overwhelming. But I wouldn’t change it for the world.”

While Maddie enjoys the idea of being carefree, she is different from other teens. “I don’t have to worry about fitting in. It’s not important to look like everyone else,” she told Us. “It’s better to stand out.”

No doubt Maddie’s confident stance comes from years of working alongside eccentric pop diva Sia, whom she calls her “inspiration.”

“She tells me, ‘If you’re forced to do something you shouldn’t do it. Always do what you love,’” Maddie said.

Maddie’s memoir discusses her love of dance, her acting career, and much to the surprise of “Dance Moms” fans, her lack of admiration for longtime competition series that brought her fame. Maddie admits in her book that she hasn’t watched more than one episode, despite starring on the series for six seasons. Maddie has also caused some controversy for seemingly shading former coach Abby Lee Miller in the book.
