Dance News

Have you seen Maddie Ziegler lately? Actually, let's rephrase that: Has anyone not seen Maddie Ziegler lately? Girl is ubiquitous these days—not that we're complaining.

First of all, of course, the 12-year-old phenom is busy filming the latest season of "Dance Moms." But it seems like whenever she has a spare moment, she's taking on some amazing side project. The Sia video? The Jimmy Kimmel sketch? The "Dancing with the Stars" appearance? Just the tip of the Maddie iceberg.

Earlier this week, Elle magazine released an interview with Maddie, accompanied by a series of images shot by up-and-coming photographer Olivia Bee (who, like the rest of us, is "just obsessed" with the "Dance Moms" star). We see Maddie striking poses in and around her home in Pittsburgh, giving some serious model face as she cuddles with adorable doggie Maliboo:

On Tuesday, Maddie also announced via Twitter that she'll be guest starring on Disney's show "Austin & Ally." No word yet on an air date for her episode, but her character's name is apparently Shelby. Keep your eyes peeled.

And last week, the tiny dancer posted a teaser photo of herself at the Sony Pictures lot on Instagram. Maddie Ziegler, movie star? Wouldn't put it past her. Next stop: world domination.

Creepy!

Apparently there's a chance Justin Timberlake will be starring as Daddy Warbucks in the new Sony Pictures film adaptation of Annie.

On the "this could be real!" side of the argument: JT is good friends with producer Jay-Z. JT has been in some films recently. JT can sing.

On the "absolutely not" side: Timberlake is about 500 years too young to play Daddy Warbucks. There's no real dancing involved in the part (lame). He'd look pretty bad in a skullcap. And, uh, a representative for Sony Pictures says the rumors are "not true."

Oh well. At least I'm two for two with the Justin Timberlake blogs this week. Don't pretend like you don't love it!
