Mumbai: Australian pop star Sia has premiered her new music video online, starring Hollywood actor Shia LaBeouf and Dance Moms favourite Maddie Ziegler.
The singer released 'Elastic Heart' as the next cut to be lifted from her recent album ‘1000 Forms of Fear’, reported E! online.
The accompanying music video sees LaBeouf attacked by Ziegler in a giant cage, with both parties in grubby, nude-coloured outfits.
Within Days of its release the video has garnered a lot of criticisms for its content, that most fans consider to be mighty close to pedophilia. Various reports even suggest that parents consider the video ‘vile’ and can’t believe the length Maddie’s mother would go, to make her daughter famous.
Ziegler fronted the music video for Sia's Grammy-nominated single 'Chandelier', which premiered last summer and has since been viewed over 430 million times on VEVO. The video was also one of the most re-enacted videos of 2014.
TMZ reported, that "Dance Moms" chieftain Abby Lee Miller thinks the critics are stupid, not understanding Maddie and Shia were simply portraying werewolves and exhibited awesome athleticism and timing.
'Elastic Heart' - which also has a version that features The Weeknd - was originally written for the 'Hunger Games: Catching Fire' soundtrack back in November 2013.
