    As we picture Katy Perry relaxing somewhere wonderful over the Memorial Day weekend, a hacker was apparently hard at work trying to gain access to her Twitter account.

    Ultimately, the unknown mastermind proved to be successful as followers noticed a few nasty (and confusing) posts appear on the "Firework" singer's timeline Monday night around 8:30 p.m. ET.

    "Haha follow @Sw4ylol #HackersGonnaHate," the first tweet read. "Shoutout I and r Breh."

    While some had no meaning to the common reader, one tweet definitely grabbed the attention of fans. Yes, it involves her relationship with Taylor Swift.

    "Miss u baby @TaylorSwift13," the message read before all the tweets were deleted. Another message read, "u a f-- @Keemstar."

    Perry has yet to comment on the hack, likely because Twitter is still trying to solve the problem and find the person or persons responsible.

    Some fans, however, quickly began to speculate that the handle @Sw4ylol was to blame. While the new account first tweeted, "Who TF is Katy Perry," another message soon appeared with a Soundcloud link featuring an unreleased Perry song.

    Ultimately, Perry isn't the first (or likely the last) major celebrity to get hacked. Ian Somerhalder, Selena Gomez, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump are just some of the stars who have had their social media accounts violated.

    In regards to Perry, this mystery may just be getting started.
