Eccentric singer/songwriter Sia released the video for “Elastic Heart” today, and it is…definitely very Sia. Continuing with her self-proclaimed trademark – a blonde wig- the video features “Dance Moms” star Maddie Ziegler taunting and teasing actor Shia LaBeouf.
The video is set in a giant bird cage. LaBeouf is clad in nothing more than dirty nude-colored shorts and his bloody bandages (but we don’t mind that), and Ziegler wears the same leotard and blonde wig she sported in Sia’s “Chandelier” video. The song itself is another hit, with Sia belting notes that make you want to think about your last break-up on top of a beat that sounds like something we could hear backing Rihanna. Sia did write “Diamonds,” didn’t she?
Sia performed “Elastic Heart” on Jimmy Kimmel Live back in July with Ziegler and other dancers colored in clown face paint and colorful attire. According to People, the song was re-released for 1000 Forms of Fear after being on the the soundtrack for Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
Overall, the song is bomb. The video is bomb. And Shia LaBeouf is looking mighty ‘beouf.’
