Update, 3/2: On Thursday, Katy Perry took to Twitter to address her split from Orlando Bloom, making it clear things were just fine between the pair before criticizing the media for suggesting the breakup had been anything but amicable.

"HOW BOUT A NEW WAY OF THINKING FOR 2017!?," she wrote. "U can still b friends & love ur former partners! No one's a victim or a villain, get a life y'all!"

As further proof she hasn't been too bothered by all the recent gossip surrounding her love life, the pop star later debuted a sexy new hairdo on Instagram, opting for a messy pixie cut in a gorgeous platinum hue.

"Guys, I love it. I feel very free," she said on Snapchat. "Now, there's other more important things going on in the world. Tune into that."

The pair first started dating in January 2016, and were last spotted together at the Vanity Fair Oscars party Sunday, where they posed for photos.
