The video certainley evoked some emotions in people when it dropped, and that was exactly what Sia intended.

Sia's music video for "Elastic Heart" dropped today and features Transformers actor Shia LaBeouf and Dance Mom star 12-year-old Maddie Ziegler who also featured in Sia's Chandelier video clip.

Maddie's dancing is beautiful in a disturbing way while LaBeouf is mainly just disturbing. 

But the internet seemed to have reacted with disgust at the videos apparent 'sexual' and 'pedophelic' undertones.

Sia has apologised however in a series of tweets explaining "I anticipated some 'pedophilia'!!!' 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," she continues "I apologize to those who feel triggered by #ElasticHeart My intention was to create some emotional content, not to upset anybody."

 

Knowing the two dancers represents the 'two warring states' of Sia's self, do you think it makes the video that much more beautiful? Or are you still not convinced?
