All faced recent relationship dramas

Katy Perry might have previously been BFFs with Rihanna but she seems to have moved on to some new showbiz friends – Kristen Stewart and Selena Gomez.

Katy, 28, and Kristen, 22, attended the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards in LA together on Saturday night and spent the evening laughing and joking along with former Disney starlet Selena, 20.

The girls posed for a cute picture together, with Kristen sitting on Katy’s knee, and they were also snapped stroking pregnant singer Fergie’s baby bump.

All three ladies have had very public relationship dramas lately – Katy reportedly split from singer John Mayer last week while Selena‘s relationship with Justin Bieber ended earlier this year.

And Kristen‘s on-off romance with Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson continues following their night out in LA together last week.

Katy was in particularly high spirits at the event, scooping the award for Favourite Female Singer and giving some enthusiastic advice to the young audience.

‘I love the kids!’ Katy told fans at the event in LA.

‘Stay safe and stay in school. Have a good time, stay in school!’
