Uh-ohs – after Sia’s new video for track Elastic Heart came under criticism, she’s publically apologised.

In the video, 12-year-old dancer Maddie Ziegler does an arty dance inside a cage with Shia LaBeouf, 28. They’re wearing nude leotards – which has caused a stir, with the video being labelled as paedophilic.

Sia’s known to shy away from the limelight - so this is quite a statement from the singer.

She tweeted:

Eek. We’re guessing that Sia didn’t expect such a massive response to the video – and it’s a great track, but the video is a little creepy at times.
