The pop star appears to be ringing in the New Year by taking a break from her hectic work schedule, although it has not been confirmed where in the world she has flown to.
And now her rare time off has been interrupted by a mosquito. Poor thing!
Earlier today (8 January), Katy posted a photo of her large bite on Instagram and added the amusing caption: "My third eye via mosquito bite. #thanksvacation".
In the snap we can make out a sore looking shape on her forehead, which looks a little red and itchy.
But at least the songstress sees the funny side!
It's no wonder Katy - who is currently dating John Mayer - has squeezed in a holiday at the beginning of 2014, since she is set for a busy year ahead.
This week it was announced that the 29-year-old hit maker will be gracing the stage at the annual Grammy Awards, which are being held in LA on 26 January.
Her single 'Roar' has also scooped two nominations at the awards show, including Song Of The Year and Best Pop Solo Performance.
It's sure to be a special night - and hopefully the mozzy bite will have disappeared by then!
