Songwriter to the stars and singer in her own right Sia has apologized to the Twitter users and YouTube commenters who shape our culture for her "Elastic Heart" video, which hit Vevo yesterday. In it, the 28-year-old fuckery conduit Shia Lebeouf and 12-year-old Dance Moms star Maddie Ziegler dance intensely while wearing dirty underwear that is roughly the color of their skin. "Pedophile!" said some to this. One said it was the latest addition to his OH FUCK NO list:

Sia heard their cries and issued a response that is the sorriest of sorry-not-sorries.

Upsetting people, of course, is the risk that she took by releasing anything to the world, particularly something that she anticipated would receive the outrage that it did. But she's sorry, nonetheless—not that she did it, but that you feel the way you do. There, done.

Now the question we must ask ourselves is: Can we forgive Sia for using the phrase "emotional content"?
