Quickly becoming known for her artistic music videos Sia has just dropped the visuals for her latest single ‘Elastic Heart.’ Featuring actor Shia LaBeouf and Maddie Ziegler who starred in ‘Chandelier’ the clip shows the pair locked in a cage silently fighting each other through some mesmirising dance moves.
Since the video’s release Sia has had to come to her own defence following some people’s complaints of paedophilia. The singer has responded to the cries by tweeting “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” She then continued to explain herself by saying “I apologize to those who feel triggered by #ElasticHeart My intention was to create some emotional content, not to upset anybody.”
The video was made to depict the two conflicting sides of Sia’s personality as they fight each other with one eventually breaking free. It’s a pretty artistic video, something that viewers aren’t used to seeing from their pop artists these days. Perhaps the unknown is making people uncomfortable or perhaps we’re living in a world where you can’t do or say anything anymore without offending someone else. Either way it’s clear that Sia’s intentions were purely artistic and she created another captivating music video.
