Australian singer Sia has apologized on Twitter for showing paedophiliac tones in her latest video of her single Elastic Heart featuring Shia LaBeouf and 12-year-old dancer Maddie Ziegler.

The 39-year-old songstress tweeted her apology saying that she anticipated some paedophilia and all she could say is Ziegler and LaBeouf are two of the only actors she felt could play these two warring Sia self states, Stuff.co.nz reported.

The Australian pop singer also posted that she would like to apologize to those who feel triggered by the video but her intention was to create some emotional content, not to upset anybody.

Some of the dance moves in the arthouse-style clip, made by Chandelier director Daniel Askill, involve close contact and suggest ambiguous intimacy.

The clip has garnered over a million views online in less than 24 hours.
