LOS ANGELES, Jan. 10 (UPI) -- U.S. pop star Katy Perry says she will not be attending Wednesday's People's Choice Awards ceremony in Los Angeles as planned.
Perry is nominated for seven prizes.
"Unfortunately I will not be able to attend the People's Choice Awards," she said via Twitter Monday. "I want to thank u all for voting for me, fingers crossed! #KATYCATS."
E! News said Perry did not offer a reason for her cancellation, but noted the awards show was to be Perry's first public appearance since her husband, comedian Russell Brand, filed for divorce late last month after a about 14 months of marriage.
