Maddie Ziegler Returns In Sia's "Elastic Heart" Video With Shia LaBeouf

In a strange turn of events, Shia LaBeouf is in Sia’s new video.

Sia has released the music video for her new single “Elastic Heart” and – before you ask – of course she’s not actually in it. Instead, the anti-fame singer asked Maddie Ziegler – the ridiculously talented star of the “Chandelier” video (and Dance Moms, but moving on) – to put her Sia wig back on, step into a cage and fight her paper-bag buddy Shia LaBeouf.

Thankfully, the dancing is choreographed and we’re not made to watch a 28-year-old man attack a 12-year-old girl.

All jokes aside, both Maddie and Shia give incredible performances as they make the intensely physical choreography look effortless. Like “Chandelier,” it’s a very arty visual that leaves the intent to the viewer’s interpretation – basically, Sia’s Artpop could mean anything.

Also, if you recognise “Elastic Heart” it’s probably because you heard it when Sia released a version of the song last year, featuring The Weeknd, before she started hiding her face all the time.

Will this be as big as “Chandelier”? Only time will tell.
