Maddie Ziegler’s name will always be linked with “Dance Moms” but it seems that the young star has nothing but bad things to say about the show that catapulted her to stardom. After leaving the hit Lifetime show in season 6, there is definitely no turning back for the 14-year-old dancer, actress, and model. As a matter of fact, Maddie is so over the reality dance competition series that she has no problem labeling it as something not too nice.

In a video created by Raw, Maddie Ziegler played a fun game of word association with Jaeden Lieberher. The teen’s “Book of Henry” co-star said a couple of words and the former “Dance Moms” star associated them with words that first popped into her head.

Jaeden Lieberher told her words like “Dance,” “High School Musical, “Leotard,” “Contemporary,” “The Audition,” and even her boyfriend “Jack Kelly,” that made Maddie Ziegler giggle and associated the name with “Love.” But when her co-star said “Dance Moms,” the young star frowned and called the reality show “the worst.”

Maddie Ziegler has lately been expressing her dislike for “Dance Moms” in her interviews. It’s no secret that the Maddie Style mogul was Abby Lee Miller’s favorite student so many people were shocked to see her talking negatively about the show that opened the doors for her in Hollywood.

Maddie told People at the time that she was glad to have moved on from "Dance Moms" because she could not handle the stress anymore. She then noted that she is now in a happier place after leaving the Lifetime show.

As she was the teacher’s favorite, Maddie Ziegler felt the pressure to win the top prize all the time to make her mentor happy and satisfied. Although the star loved dancing and competing a lot, it did take a toll on Maddie who said, "I was stressed at 11 years old, which shouldn't happen.”
