Katy Perry won’t be able to make it to the People’s Choice Awards on Wednesday. She has other stuff going on. Like that one big horrible stuff she has with Russell Brand. It’s called a divorce; we don’t know why we’re being so coy about it. Despite being among the nominees for the January 11 ceremony, Perry tweeted this afternoon, “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.” Hey, if we were in Katy’s position, we’d still be curled up in the fetal position, watching Toddlers & Tiaras and weeping. Heck, we’re going to do that tonight anyway, and we aren’t even getting a divorce.
The People’s Choice Awards would have been the “One That Got Away” singer’s first scheduled public appearance since news of Katy Perry’s divorce hit the blogosphere December 30. While she might not be up for a night on the red carpet, Katy did break her recent silence to thank her fans via Twitter. “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. “Concerning the gossip, I want to be clear that NO ONE speaks for me. Not a blog, magazine, ‘close sources’ or my family.” Well…maybe the makers of the Forever Lazy suit do. Those people know exactly what a woman with a broken heart needs.
