About the Character
In the series, we witness that is a very confident girl who knows what she wants and considers herself special and attractive. She is in a relationship with a guy named Nate Jacobs, which was an on-off kind of relationship.
Nate had high-temper issues, because of which Maddy felt that he could hurt her. But even though she knows this, she believes that she still loves him. The fact that she would still be in love with that guy even after his abuse and bad actions disgusts her to the core, yet she has no control over it.
As was narrated by Rue in the series – ‘It wasn’t the violence that scared her, it was the fact that she knew no matter what he did, she would still love him.’
Maddy Euphoria is an extrovert, outspoken as well as an emotional person. You will not find her sugar-coating anything, and she is s straight-forwarded person. It does not bother her what people think of her.
But there are certain traits of Maddy Euphoria which are bad too. For instance, in some situations, she becomes very selfish and is not as mature as she thinks of herself. It is just because of her immaturity and her attempts to make her boyfriend Nate jealous that she indulges in sexual activities with other guys.
This means that because of Nate she does certain things which she doesn’t even know if she really wants to do or not. Nate actually makes Maddy do bad things and brings out her bad side, and maybe she too knows it but won’t admit it.
In one of the scenes, she wants to know Nate and if he truly loves him. She asked Nate – ‘Did you know that I love you? I am not talking about obsession or fighting or fucking. I am talking about love. Did you feel loved by me?’
Maddy’s dress sense is a total vibe, no wonder why so many women consider her a diva and became her fan after watching the series.
Her perfectly done hair every time or her winged eyeliner created a wave. In season 1, we witnessed more floral dresses and pastel colors on her.
While in season 2, she served her bold looks more in black and grey color. She always stands out when it comes to fashion and she proves that she is a diva and can carry any outfit, be it a floral dress, a pastel top, a crop top with pins, or her I.AM.GIA dress.
Her edgy and fashionable outfits inspired girls and many of them recreated Maddy Euphoria outfits and shared them on social media platforms.
