    Sia Is Sorry About Those Alleged Pedophilia Vibes In Her New Video

    "My intention was to create some emotional content, not to upset anybody."

    Yesterday, Sia's follow-up to her widely celebrated video for "Chandelier" was met with great fanfare — immediately followed by a lot of headscratching.

    The video for "Elastic Heart" features the return of 12-year-old "Chandelier" and Dance Moms star Maddie Ziegler, but oddly matches her with 28-year-old, post-fame acting weirdo Shia Labeouf — who wears only nude underwear and a grisly beard.

    Late last night, Sia responded to critics of the clip, admitting that she anticipated controversy but defending her casting choices.

    I anticipated some 'pedophelia!!!' 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.

    Ultimately, she apologized to those who were offended by the imagery or "triggered" by its alleged depiction of pedophilia.

    I apologize to those who feel triggered by #ElasticHeart My intention was to create some emotional content, not to upset anybody. 🙏
