Dance Moms star Maddie Ziegler and Nymphomaniac protagonist Shia LaBeouf are back again in a behind the scenes video for Sia's Elastic Heart. Bouncing off the walls of a cage in a nude leotard and signature blonde wig, Maddie beats her chest and kicks her legs, while Shia hangs from the ceiling and throws her legs in the air. While some have criticised the dancers' controversial age gap, others have praised the video for its emotive interpretation of contemporary dance. Either way, from interviews with Maddie, Shia and Sia (whose face is hidden by a big bunch of bananas throughout) to unseen footage of rehearsals, check out what really went down in the video below and see what you think for yourself.
