Last week when MTV News caught up with [artist id="1962774"]Katy Perry[/artist] on the red carpet at the Critics' Choice Awards, she spoke about [article id="1602427"]her recent split with boyfriend Travis McCoy[/article]. Sort of.
It would be more accurate to say that she sidestepped our question about [artist id="1904930"]McCoy[/artist], answering with a polite — if not a little curt — plug for her upcoming Hello Katy Tour, before being whisked away by a rather annoyed-looking publicist.
On Monday, onstage at Los Angeles' Hotel Cafe, however, things were a bit different.
Perry — who was performing an exclusive acoustic set at the tiny venue — spoke openly and honestly about her split with McCoy, letting her emotions spill out and telling the sold-out crowd that "It hurts right now."
"When you break up with someone, you move on," she said from the stage, according to People magazine. "You don't really want to move on ... but you have to because they don't give you any choice," she added before declaring, "But I'm over it!"
Perry, who was battling the flu during her Hotel Cafe set, reportedly laughed and joked with her friends, who were seated in front of the stage. And later, on her blog, she continued with the "getting over it" vibe, writing, "So, my post tonight started very melancholy. The usual. Mostly just a pity party I suppose. We all throw them ... no one ever comes though, especially [to] mine."
"I have the wonderful world at my fingertips," she continued. "And nothing has made me smile much in the past couple days besides TheDailyKitten.com."
