Maddie wears the same blonde wig and nude-colored bodysuit that caused an uproar when she danced with 28-year-old Shia LaBeouf in Sia’s “Elastic Heart” video.
The video, which simulated a cage fight, include moments of intimacy, passion and wild dancing between the two that caused critics to liken the production to kiddie porn.
Ziegler also appeared in Sia’s “Chandelier” video, wearing the same outfit but dancing alone in the same frenzied style.
Sia, who apologized to those who were offended by her EH video, shouldn’t face a similar uproar this time around. Maddie, who is best known for her role on “Dance Moms,” wears the same provocative blonde wig and flesh-colored body suit that led critics to complain that she was being over-sexualized.
Daniel Askill, who also co-directed the first two Maddie videos, lets Ziegler’s hands and face do all the work. She gulps for air, stretches her face in contorted shapes, whips her wig and wildly rolls her eyes.
There’s also a scene where she’s symbolically strangled and hung. Whoa, that’s a little over the top.
