Life's a beach for Katy Perry these days.
The "Wide Awake" singer was all smiles as she hit the Venice Beach, Calif., boardwalk on July 4 during a bike ride with friends. The Independence Day holiday was likely a refreshing break for the now-single star, who has been busy promoting her new film, "Katy Perry: Part of Me."
For those wondering how she could be biking on the West Coast and later performing for the Macy's 4th of July Fireworks show in New York City -- we'll admit we were confused too -- it turns out Perry pre-recorded her show back in May in front of 2,000 military personnel, according to the New York Post.
