Sia Apologizes To Those Who Feel ‘Elastic Heart’ Video Contains Pedophilia
By Shannon Carlin
Almost immediately after Sia‘s video for “Elastic Heart” premiered yesterday (Jan. 7) people were already commenting that the relationship in the video was a little too close for comfort.
The clip for her newest single off 2014’s 1000 Forms of Fear features the young “Chandelier” dancer Maddie Ziegler and fellow plastic bag wearing actor Shia LaBeouf facing off in a dance war.
But, given the age difference some felt their interactions in the video were inappropriate, posting tweets that referenced the video’s “creepy pedophilia tones.”
The thing is, Sia wasn’t that surprised to hear people were discussing the tone of the video.
Last night she even tweeted, “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.”
