Katy Perry apparently needs a little bit more time out of the spotlight.
The “Firework” announced she’s bailing on her return to the public eye.
“Unfortunately I will not be able to attend the People’s Choice Awards,” she wrote. “I want to thank u all for voting for me, fingers crossed! #KATYCATS.”
The award show tomorrow night was to be Perry’s first public appearance since she and husband Russell Brand split up just before New Year’s Eve.
Perry, who is up for seven People’s Choice Awards, didn’t give a reason why she’s no longer attending. Her rep also declined comment on the topic.
Perry recently returned to Twitter, thanking her fans for making her “heart happy again,” while also taking a shot at her parents and gossip sources.
“I want to be clear that NO ONE speaks for me,” she tweeted with a hint of bitterness. “Not a blog, magazine, ‘close sources’ or my family.”
She has two concerts scheduled in Indonesia on Jan. 19 and 22, so it may be awhile until we see her out and about stateside. Grammys perhaps?
