[photogallerylink id=135118 align=right][lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Katy Perry[/lastfm] used Twitter to back out of her first public appearance since splitting with Russell Brand. The “Kissed A Girl” singer was supposed to appear live at the People’s Choice Awards in Los Angeles tonight, for which she was nominated, but decided against it last minute.
“Unfortunately I will not be able to attend the People’s Choice Awards. I want to thank u all for voting for me, fingers crossed! #KATYCATS,” she tweeted.
She is nominated for 7 awards including Favorite Artist and Favorite Song for “E.T.”
Katy has been pretty hush hush since announcing her divorce from husband of 17 months, Russell Brand. But after so much gossip erupted around the news, Katy had to speak out a little, just to clear the air.
“I am so grateful for all the love and support I’ve had from people around the world. You guys have made my heart happy again,” she tweeted on Saturday, before directing her displeasure to the media gossip, “Concerning the gossip, I want to be clear that NO ONE speaks for me. Not a blog, magazine, ‘close sources’ or my family.”
She still has an appearance scheduled in Jakarta, Indonesia later this month. No word on if she’s dropped out or rescheduled that event yet.
The People’s Choice Awards are set to air on CBS on January 11th at 6 PM PST.
We hope she can bounce back soon, we are missing her already.
