So, yeah, I’ve been pretty MIA on this thing. I want to get back into it though and fully plan to. I’m going to try and provide entertaining posts that are short and to the point. Time is precious. I’m late on posting this, but was early on seeing it…
A new music video produced by the performer, Sia, features Shia LaBeouf and 12-year old Maddie Ziegler.
When I first watched this video, I saw the girl dancing and assumed she was similar to that of Haley Dunphy’s character in Modern Family, and looked 12, but in actuality was somewhere around 21. Before recognizing the female star’s age, I admired the video. I get a kick out of Shia LeBouf, the song is great, and the video seemingly served as a metaphor for relationship struggles that we’ve all gone through at some point or another.
After figuring out her age, I said to myself, “Here we go.” Let the YouTube comments roll it, let the inappropriate blog posts fly. I am going to stay out of the controversial commentary and just say they had to expect this video to stir up some drama. It strikes some people as sexual and inappropriate and it hits others as artsy and beautiful. Thoughts?
