Sia is making a career out of weird music videos.
The singer — who eschews the press and generally tries not to show her face — released a video on Wednesday for “Big Girls Cry,” the third single off her 2014 album 1000 Forms of Fear.
Like her other two previous videos (for “Chandelier” and “Elastic Heart”), Sia’s not in it, and it will probably haunt your dreams.
The video stars Maddie Ziegler, one of the girls on Dance Moms and the subject of much outcry after the 12-year-old appeared in the “Elastic Heart” video in some compromising positions with Shia LaBeouf.
As in “Chandelier” and “Elastic Heart,” Ziegler wears a blonde wig and a skin-colored bodysuit — but unlike “Elastic Heart,” “Big Girls Cry” features Ziegler alone for the majority of the video. It is almost entirely her, alone, looking into the camera and acting out parts of the song with a light moving around her offscreen. At one point, manicured women’s hands lift her up off the ground by her neck, and the camera pans down to her feet as we watch her struggle to break out.
