She kissed a new boy — and she liked it!

Katy Perry was among the many celebs at Coachella Music Festival in Indio, Calif. over the weekend. And the “Part of Me” singer, 27, had a handsome male companion by her side for the outdoor fest: Robert Ackroyd, a guitarist for Florence + the Machine.

In photos from Sunday, the star, who reached a divorce settlement with Russell Brand in February, packed on the PDA with the tattooed British rocker as they took in the shows: Hugging, holding hands and kissing in the audience.

Although British comic Brand, 36, has reportedly been dating up a storm following the dissolution of his 14-month marriage to Perry, the chart-topping singer’s love life has been much quieter, and she’s been focusing instead an upcoming 3-D concert film, commercial shoots and more.

And her weekend hookup with Ackroyd may just be a fun distraction.

“Katy’s been trying to get [Russell] back!” a close Perry pal told Us Weekly recently. “She’s a lost soul right now.”

“Right now, Katy and Russell are trying to get to the point where they can at least be friends,” says a Perry pal.
