WATCH: Shia LaBeouf And Maddie Ziegler Cage Fight In Sia’s “Elastic Heart” Video
Sia recruited Shia LaBeouf and “Dance Moms” star Maddie Ziegler to battle in a cage for her “Elastic Heart” video, which debuted on Wednesday. The 12-year-old dancer and the actor are covered in dirt and act like animals as they engage in a bizarre interpretive dance throughout the clip (see below).
Ziegler, who also starred in Sia’s “Chandelier,” once again dons a blonde wig and a nude bodysuit as she stands opposite LaBeouf, who wears similarly colored boxer-briefs. The filthy stars writhe, crawl, and run after one another as they have a dance battle. At one point, the pre-teen throws LaBeouf against the steal rails of the cage. LaBeouf attempts to free himself by climbing to the top of the cage, but fails. Ziegler eventually slips through the rails, while LaBeouf desperately clings to her. The video ends with silence as LaBeouf is left grasping at the tween, who has broken free.
Sia teamed up with Daniel Askill to direct the artsy five-minute video. The two also worked together on her “Chandelier” and “Breath Me” videos. “Elastic Heart” originally featured The Weeknd and debuted in 2013 as a part The Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack. Sia re-released the single without The Weeknd as the latest track from her album 1000 Forms of Fear. Check out the video below, and tell us what you think!
