I think, without naming names, we all know that childhood stardom can be a slippery slope. But Miranda Cosgrove, star of “iCarly” and burgeoning pop music sensation has remarkably managed to keep her balance. And with this new video for “Dancing Crazy,” the lead single from her upcoming High Maintenance EP, she sort of shows why.

“Dancing Crazy” depicts the kind of mildly illicit fun that won’t get you on TMZ. In the clip, Cosgrove sneaks out of her house at the very PG hour of 11 p.m., only to head over to the high school football field for a dance party in the U.S.A. It’s basically like “Friday Night Lights” meets “Footloose.”

The song itself is a combo of Miley Cyrus‘ (somewhat) aforementioned “Party…” and Avril Lavigne‘s “What The Hell” (it seems like organs are very “in” for 2011).
