Sia wants to set the record straight.

It seems like the famous "Chandelier" singer was on the receiving-end of some backlash from fans for not only being MIA from Australia's ARIA music awards on Wednesday, where she was honored with four awards, but also for apparently only having one acceptance speech recorded.

Well, the Aussie star wasn't about to sit back and let people assume she was "too cool" for the ARIAs and took to Twitter to clear the air.

"I made four thank you/acceptance videos for the arias. They chose to show one. I'm saddened to be getting shit for being a 'no-show'," Sia wrote, and even mentioned that she's decided to give her awards away! "On the upside, I won! Who wants one? First four people to document doing a good deed, I'll send you an aria. GO!!!"

The singer-songwriter won Album of the Year for 1000 Forms of Fear as well as Best Pop Release, Best Video and Best Female Artist. Although she wasn't present at the event in Sydney, fellow singer Katy Perry accepted the Best Female Artist award on her behalf.

Fans went in on another Aussie star who wasn't at the award show, too—Iggy Azalea.

The rapper took home Best Breakthrough Artist but had her Fancy collaborator Charli XCX accept the award. "I'm going to drop it off to her and she's going to enjoy it," Charli XCX said.

Iggy hasn't made any mention about the awards show and instead is still basking in the glory from her successful night at the American Music Awards.

"Not being proactive about anything in your life and then complaining about others who are is funny to me," she tweeted. "i expected to see lots of it this week, success always seems to bring about a particular brand of nastiness in others and thats sad...but I'm sitting in a room full of beautiful flowers and balloons enjoying myself and my fans... getting ready for fallon. i LOVE you guys...and i love that you know you have the power to make it all happen! thanks for making it happen for ME. love you. xoxoxo"
