Sia left ‘suicidal’ and admitted herself to rehab after Music movie backlash over ableism row

The Metro says Sia has recalled how her mental health was affected following the backlash over her movie Music and caused her to feel suicidal. 

The Elastic Heart singer wrote and directed the 2021 movie, which starred dancer Maddie Ziegler as autistic teen Music alongside Kate Hudson as her half-sister Zu. 

However, the film was met with immense criticism over Ziegler’s casting and its portrayal of autism, with many arguing an autistic actress should have been given the opportunity. 

It was branded ‘ableist’ while Ziegler’s casting was put down to nepotism as the performer has worked with Sia for years.
