Katy Perry has clearly moved on from her very public 2011 divorce from Russell Brand.

When asked about her post-split anthems "Wide Awake" and "Part of Me" at Thursday's American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers Expo in Hollywood, Calif., the pop star shrugged off talk of what she referred to as "The Big D."

“It’s a very tiny elephant [in the room]," she said. "It's like a little tchotchke now.”

Brand filed for divorce from Perry in December 2011 after 14 months of marriage. The former couple finalized their split in July 2012.

Since then, both Perry and Brand have shown signs of moving on. The "Firework" singer was in an eight month on-and-off relationship with notorious rebound man John Mayer that began last summer and came to an end in March 2013.

Brand has also been keeping himself busy in the dating department. The "Brand X" host has been romantically linked to a number of women including Isabella Brewster, Geri Halliwell and model Nikolett Barabas.

Earlier this month, rumors began to swirl that Perry and Brand were reconciling after they were reportedly spotted making out at Soho House in West Hollywood. Perry later shot down the rumors on Twitter, writing, "Gross! As if!"
