Lena for Sia
Lena Dunham goes all interpretive for Sia's 'Late Night' performance.
Sia has apologized to viewers who have interpreted intimate dance moves between 12-year-old Maddie Ziegler and 28-year-old actor Shia LaBeouf in her new video clip for the song “Elastic Heart” as inappropriate.

The pair appeared dressed in skin-colored leotards as they tussle during an interpretive-dance cage match.

Given the age difference some felt their interactions in the video were inappropriate, posting tweets that referenced the video’s “creepy pedophilia tones.”

She replied to the criticism on Twitter:
