Yesterday, Sia released her “Elastic Heart” music video which features 28-year-old Shia LaBeouf and 12-year-old Maddie Ziegler from her Chandelier video, also known from Dance Moms. The video got immediate backlash for being controversial. Watch the video.
People complained about the video having perverted overtones. Especially the people below…
I appreciate art, but Sia's #ElasticHeart is creepy and weird. Pedophilia much?

So, Sia took to Twitter to explain the true meaning of the video.
Sia later responded to a Twitter account shedding some light on the video that Shia and Maddie were essentially playing the same person:
She continued her apology on Twitter after explaining her intent, tweeting, “I apologize to those who feel triggered by ‘Elastic Heart.’ My intention was to create some emotional content, not to upset anybody.”
Even though the video may be controversial, Sia is known as an artist and her fans fully support her and her vision.
Can't stop listening to Elastic Heart.

So, I used to watch that Sia new MV name Elastic Heart, and I drop a tear after I'm watching it, am I weird?
