Sia has apologized for causing any emotional unrest, after some fans voiced concern that her new video for "Elastic Heart" bordered on pedophilia.
In the clip, Shia LaBeouf, 28, and Maddie Ziegler, 12, engage in a caged dance-off. LaBeouf is wearing flesh-colored underwear, while Ziegler appears in bodysuit.
On Twitter, Sia said she had expected some blowback about the piece, but felt casting the two stars was in the best interest of her creative vision.
