Sia premiered her new music video for Elastic Heart yesterday, unfortunatley it didn’t quit receive the praise that she wanted.
Her last video for Chandelier was met with great fan fare and nominated for an MTV Video Music Award. It featured Dance Moms 12-year-old Maddie Ziegler dancing in a nude body suit around her apartment flat. Very artsy.
In her recent video, Sia brings back Ziegler and her nude body suit and adds Shia LaBeouf in his nude underwear and a cage. Again very artsy and emotional.
Sia received a lot of backlash from her fans claiming that the video “triggered” an alleged pedophile feel.
She responded last night via Twitter saying, “I anticipated some ‘pedophilia!!!’ Cries for this video. All I can say is Maddie and Shia are two of the only actors I felt could play these two warring ‘sia’ self states.” She continues, “I apologize to those who feel triggered by #ElasticHeart. My intention was to create some emotional content, not to upset anybody.”
Check out Sia’s Elastic Heart and tell us what you think. Do you see Sia’s interpretations of herself or only the pedophile relationship between Shia and Maddie?
