When Sia found out that nude paparazzi images taken without her permission were being shopped around, she took back control of the situation by deciding to share the photos herself on her own terms.

On Monday, the "Cheap Thrills" hitmaker took a proactive approach as she addressed the invasion of privacy by posting one of the images on Twitter along with a cleverly embedded promotion for her new music.

"Someone is apparently trying to sell naked photos of me to my fans," the 41-year-old singer wrote alongside an NSFW shot of her taken from behind outside. "Save your money, here it is for free." She continued by quipping, "Everyday is Christmas," with a subtle reference to her upcoming album of the same name.

While Sia has been notoriously reticent about showing her face in public, it's safe to say that the Australian songstress doesn't shy away from flashing a little skin here and there. Back in October, the "Titanium" singer was featured on her makeup artist Tony Brewer's Instagram account wearing a green face mask and a white floor-length robe with her right breast bared.

Now that's how you handle a tough situation!
