From the “Chandelier” to the cage! On Wednesday, Jan. 7, Sia released a new interpretive dance-focused music video for her latest single “Elastic Heart.” It is the second clip to feature Dance Moms’ star Maddie Ziegler, whose performance in Sia’s “Chandelier” music video became one of the biggest memes of 2014.
This new clip also stars Fury actor Shia LaBeouf, who spends the majority of the five-minute clip battling Ziegler, 12, inside of a massive cage, while wearing only a dirty pair of nude-colored underwear.
The controversial former Disney star, 28, also appeared in Sigur Rós’ “Fjögur píanó” music video in early 2013, in which he went completely nude.
In “Elastic Heart,” Ziegler is wearing the same nude leotard and blonde wig — which copies Sia’s hairstyle — as she did in "Chandelier." Her movements are much more aggressive than her emotional “Chandelier” choreography, flinging LaBeouf against the cage and gnashing her teeth at him like a wild beast.
The Australian singer-songwriter doesn’t appear in the clip, having previously stated she has no desire to become a well-known celebrity.
"I don't want to be famous. All my friends that I write pop songs for are super famous, and it really f--ked them up!," she joked on Chelsea Lately in August. "And like being hunted, paparazzi-style, doesn't appeal to me. I want to be able to get fat and pee on the side of the road!"
