Katy Perry returned to Twitter for the first time since her split from Russell Brand, and while she didn’t address that directly, she made a few telling remarks.

The 27-year-old, who has been laying low since Russell filed for divorce, thanked her fans for their concern and well-wishes during a very difficult time.

“I am so grateful for all the love and support I’ve had from people around the world,” she Tweeted. “You guys have made my heart happy again.”

Her words for certain other figures in her life? A little less kind.

Katy Perry, Sunglasses

Katy, who was married a little over a year, lashed out at her parents last night for speaking publicly about her split from Russell – in church no less.

Keith and Mary Hudson, who are both Christian ministers, said that Katy’s divorce was a blessing in disguise, generating interest in their ministry.

Katy Tweeted last night that no one speaks for her … including her family. It seems she’s not happy with the comments they’ve been making.

“Concerning the gossip, I want to be clear that NO ONE speaks for me. Not a blog, magazine, ‘close sources’ or my family,” the singer wrote.

Perry Divorce Tweet

You heard it here first. Or on Katy’s Twitter if you follow her.

Katy Perry’s parents are conservative Christian ministers, so you would assume they would be devastated by her divorce. If so, they’re definitely not showing it.

It’s been reported that Russell Brand filed for divorce in large part so Katy, who was raised in a devout Christian household, wouldn’t have to do so.

God works in mysterious ways, though, and in the eyes of Katy’s parents, her recent split from Russell is one of those ways. Say what now?

Because He used to the divorce to fill the rafters of their church, they say.

Katy Perry, Father Keith Hudson

Pastors Keith and Mary Hudson preached at Church On The Rise in Westlake, Ohio, on Wednesday, in an appearance advertised by the church.

Perry’s mom, Mary, speaking for the first time about the split, half-joked, “I’m sure Katy is trending on the internet just to get you to church tonight.”

“All over the world, who knows how God is bringing them in? The most important thing is you are here and God wants to put the fire in you in 2012.”

It is a solid glass-half-full attitude if nothing else.

Perry’s dad Keith added, “What has taken place in my daughter’s life has opened many opportunities to go in and be with guarded and gated people.”

“God has given us a new platform to go in and meet people – and they like us because you know what, we are cool. We are not threatening.”

They do actually sound pretty cool.

SIDE NOTE / FUN FACT: Katheryn Elizbaeth Hudson uses her mom’s maiden name, Perry, because she felt Katy Hudson would be confused with Kate Hudson.

According to reports, a video was shown beforehand featuring the Hudsons with Katy. The Hudsons are scheduled to appear tomorrow at a church in Georgia. This video (below) is posted on the church’s site promoting the appearance:
