Sia Apologizes for 'Elastic Heart' Video Controversy

The clip finds Shia LaBeouf and Dance Moms alum Maddie Ziegler dancing half-dressed in a bird cage. Detractors deemed the piece inappropriate, criticizing the clip for its sexual undertones – namely the physical contact between LaBeouf, 28, and 12-year-old Ziegler – that some believe edged on pedophilia.

"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 explained.
