The 'Part Of Me' singer is said to be ready to have the "time of her life" after her recent break-up.

Katy Perry has reportedly "toughened up' since her divorce from husband Russell Brand with sources claiming her recent split from John Mayer won't "hurt as bad".

The 'Firework' singer and 'Your Body Is A Wonderland' singer John are believed to have called time on their romance last week, after being a couple for much of the past year.

However, a friend close to the US pop star says she has a much thicker skin since the end of her marriage to British comedian Russell Brand and won't let the new break-up affect her as much.

"This won't hurt as bad as her split from Russell," a friend of Katy's told Grazia magazine this week. "She's toughened up a lot since then.

"She'll surround herself with girlfriends and work," they explained. "When she was with John we didn't see much of her because they staying in more.

"Now she'll be having the time of her life," the source added.
