Our favorite California girl Katy Perry announced via Twitter that she decided to skip the People’s Choice Awards this year, after her recent public divorce from actor Russell Brand.

: “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!”

Set for January 11 at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, the ceremony is the first of 2012. Perry is nominated for a staggering seven awards including favorite pop artist and favorite female pop artist. Good luck to the purple haired pop star!
