lets talk about how everybody needs to cool their jets.
I have this theory, and my theory goes like how you perceive something says more about you due to your perception than it necessarily does about what you're observing. Granted this theory only really works on things that are abstract or more artsy fartsy than direct.
example Sia's video , for all those people seeing pedophilia you need to give your head and shake and shake that thought right out.
it is a contemporary abstract dance . and if anything, what i'm seeing is Shia Laboeuf representing malice and Maddie represents the woman who is trying to rid herself of this badness that is associated with him.
Forget that she is a child and he is a grown man , if everything in this video represents something than their age shouldn't be taken so directly maybe sia just thought they could convey the right emotion. People love to look for the extreme and this is not a video where we should just jump to conclusions.
The video is called Elastic Heart right... elastic like pulling away and snapping back in and pulling away and getting snapped back in. At the end she gets away from this person who is doing her harm but let me say this once and for all:
THIS VIDEO IS NOT ABOUT PEDOPHILIA , the dancers represent something, an emotion a struggle.
Below you will find some of the lyrics to elastic heart along with the link to the video .
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
I've got thick skin and an elastic heart
But your blade it might be too sharp
I'm like a rubberband until you pull too hard
I may snap and I move fast
But you won't see me fall apart
'Cos 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
