Get the Whole Story Behind Sia's 'Elastic Heart' Video - Watch Now!

Ever since Sia‘s “Elastic Heart” video was released, everyone’s been talking about the reasoning behind the short.

“I brought back to whole same team from ‘Chandelier’ because we all worked beautifully together that day. We all worked hard. I had emails from people after saying it was one of the best experiences of their working life,” Sia said. “The ‘Elastic Heart’ is part of a trilogy because we had such an amazing time making that video we decided we wanted to do a trilogy.”

“It’s so hard, dancing is so hard…I was watching Dance Moms and I saw Maddie [Ziegler] and I thought she was incredible. I cried,” Sia added about casting the video..

“We sat in a coffee shop and she basically walked me through what her trilogy idea is and I was walking her through what my auxiliary art stuff was,” Shia LaBeouf said about his firsts meeting with Sia.

    The whole story is that the video is disturbing, no amount of explanation can explain or minimize the initial reaction you get from seeing pictures or watching the video. Surely, art can take into account age appropriateness. The age gap here serves to only underscore Shia’s depraved fantasies/his depraved reality and let’s us not forget his penchant for girls barely out of high school.

    So it’s gonna be a trilogy!! What a great news! Happy that the story will develop and continue..immense thanks to people sharing their ideas and talents with us..great work,breathtaking and vivid..

    …….the video isnt about shia tho. he only portrays what Sia wanted him to portray for her music video, he is an actor. The video shows Sia’s story, not shia’s.

    Well if Shia does like girls barely out of high school then he wouldn’t want anything to do with Maddie as she is not even in high school yet.

    Since the cage represents what’s going on in the human psyche, and Maddie and Shia both represent different elements of the same person battling it out, how do you get the idea that it’s pedophilic?

  • Eryn Morris

    Its definitely weird but I don’t see it as pedophilic. I think people are shocked because they look naked but I’m guessing this really represents the rawness or without cover in your mind.

  • Annoyed

    I think you need to reassess your view of the world aching.. there’s nothing sexual about that video in any form. Try getting your mind out of the gutter.

  • hottequilabrown

    this is a dumb comment. It is about the music, it’s sad people can’t see beyond that. There is nothing disturbing about this video nor sexualizing the characters. Come out from your shell. I promise it’s beautiful.

  • Fleshvessel

    The only disturbing part is- what is making people think about pedophilia when they see a young girl in a jumper.
    This is a beautiful video about an internal struggle.

    If you see anything but that, it says more about you than it does about Sia, Shia or the video itself.
