Katy Perry at the Kids' Choice Awards

Just a few days after news broke of her split
from John Mayer
, Katy Perry
had plenty of reasons to smile Saturday night.
Perry, 28, took home honors at the Kids' Choice Awards and the title of favorite female singer, besting Taylor Swift
and Oscar-winner Adele
Making no mention of her former romance
(and rocking some seriously sunny attire
), she proclaimed, "I love the kids," as she accepted her prize. "I think it's the coolest award."
She wasn't the only recently single lady winning big at the Galen Center. Earlier in the night, Wizards of Waverly Place
star (and Justin Bieber ex
) Selena Gomez
took the stage to accept the award for favorite television actress.
