Sia has released her 'Elastic Heart' music video on her YouTube channel two days ago. It is one of the songs in her sixth studio album, '1000 Forms Of Fear' featuring The Weeknd and Diplo.  'Elastic Heart' is also the same soundtrack that is used in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire if you have not already knew. The music video features Maddie Zieglar, who also appeared in the clip for 'Chandelier' and actor Shia LaBeouf where both were performing a dance choreographed by Ryan Heffington. Both of them were wearing somewhat dirty flesh-coloured attires, and performing an intense physical dance-off in a huge metal cage. The video, however, gained controversies due to the wide gap of age between the two dancers that were dancing together, being accused of promoting pedophilia. Later, Sia apologises via her Twitter account to the public.

"All I can say is Maddie and Shia are two of the only actors I felt could play these two warring 'Sia self states. I apologise to those who feel triggered by 'Elastic Heart'. My intention was to create some emotional content, not to upset anybody." - SIA

Admittedly, I kind of agree to the critics' views. My first reaction to the video is that I find the music video is quite disturbing as Shia's appearance looks very untidy. If he face were clean-shaven, I think the effect of the music video will look much better. What do you think of Sia's 'Elastic Heart' video? Feel free to leave comments below and enjoy the music video. Till then, au revoir! :)


Elastic Heart lyrics

And another one bites the dust
Oh why can I not conquer love?
And I might have thought that we were one
Wanted to fight this war without weapons

And I wanted it, I wanted it bad
But there were so many red flags
Now another one bites the dust
Yeah, let's be clear, I'll trust no one

You did not break me
I'm still fighting for peace

Well, I've got thick skin and an elastic heart,
But your blade it might be too sharp
I'm like a rubber band until you pull too hard,
I may snap and I move fast
But you won't see me fall apart
'Cause I've got an elastic heart

I've got an elastic heart
Yeah, I've got an elastic heart

And I will stay up through the night
Let's be clear, won't close my eyes
And I know that I can survive
I'll walk through fire to save my life

And I want it, I want my life so bad
I'm doing everything I can
Then another one bites the dust
It's hard to lose a chosen one

You did not break me
I'm still fighting for peace

Well, I've got thick skin and an elastic heart,
But your blade it might be too sharp
I'm like a rubber band until you pull too hard,
I may snap and I move fast
But you won't see me fall apart

'Cause I've got an elastic heart
Cause I've got an elastic heart
Cause I've got an elastic heart

I've got an elastic heart
