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.
Ultimately, she apologized to those who were offended by the imagery or "triggered" by its alleged depiction of pedophilia.
Totally creepy. What was she even thinking? Put your pants on, Shia!It's not creepy, it's just weird and conceptual. People are making a big deal out of nothing.
