Katy Perry dedicates Super Bowl song to Tebow

Tim Tebow wasn't playing in Sunday's Super Bowl, but you might've thought he was by the way Katy Perry kept dropping his name.

The pop star was on hand in Indianapolis, Indiana to play her first U.S. performance since splitting from Russell Brand in December, and E! reports that she also handed out an award at the NFL Honors ceremony on Saturday.

Tebow, who happened to be sitting in the front row of the audience, was called out by Perry, who may have heard the gossip that her parents are trying to set her up with the quarterback. "Hey Tim," Perry said while handing off the first honor of the night, "my parents say 'Hi.'"

Tebow seemed to still be on her mind at a pre-Super Bowl event held Saturday night.

According to People magazine, the singer was putting on a nine-song show, and when she got to "Peacock" - you know, the one that starts with the line, "I wanna see your peacock" - Perry told the audience, "This one goes out to Tim Tebow."

The 27-year-old made no mention of her estranged husband, and was said to be in good spirits, according to People. "She was having the best time, and was in such a great mood," an anonymous onlooker spilled.

And undoubtedly making Tebow blush.

    Building on the story about her parents wanted her and him to hook up obviously garners publicity, and each of these individuals will make more money by being mentioned constantly in the tabloids and newspapers. He'll sell more of his dumb books and she'll sell a few more CDs. So from a business viewpoint it's a shrewd pairing. However if he starts actually hanging out in bars with her that won't help his carefully presented image, so I'm sure we won't see that.

    As a male I think she's super-attractive, and I think that most hetero males would want to hook up with her. And maybe his good boy persona appeals to her a bit. As an avid football fan I don't think much of him as a QB. She potentially has longevity as an entertainer. He will not have longevity in the NFL. If they hook up for real that pairing will not have longevity. When he's selling cars for a living and she's still selling out stadium shows any attraction she had will wane.

    By the way I have on good authority that he is not the saint that others think he is and that he presents himself as. Eventually that will come out in the wash.

    Can someone tell me why such a pretty girl would do this to her hair? Last pic I saw of her it was pink, now this? I just don't get it.

    If I never hear the name "Tebow" again it will be too soon. When will this guys 15 minutes be up? When will he be caught face down in a hotel room full of call girls? This year? Next?

      Why does it matter to you? Unlike a lot of today's "celebrities" on TV, Tim never asked for the attention. He's been doing the same thing he did since college. He had a miraculous run which ended in a loss, so what? People were fascinated, but I'm sure he's going to be horrible next year. That's all. To answer your questions after the 15 minutes one... I can bet your life/existence that he won't be caught in that position.

      "Tim never asked for the attention."

      Bulls hit, that jesustard takes every opportunity to pander to the faithful. He has the worst passing stats in the NFL and is the most followed QB, Why is that? Oh that's right because he gloms onto the stupid religious nonsense at every possible chance. he is just another Sunday morning TV evangelist. He's Jimmy Swaggart in a football helmet.

    Ummm..yeah right. Perry I think Tebow is too much a good boy for you. Brand wanted her to slow down and stop partying then she thinks she can land Tebow. Give me a break. Even if she does it will very, very short lived. She needs to slow down to settle down again.

    I saw on Beavis & Butthead where sparks were shooting out of her zoomers. You gotta respect a girl that can do that. Spsrks flying from zoomers is very spiritual.

    They'd be perfect together. Two jesustards who both really suck at what they do for a living. She can't sing and he can't throw. The one thing they have in common is that they both do their best work on their knees.

    Honestly, is she really that bad? Ive only heard positive things about her. Reports are she is super nice and deacent. Plus she has loads of money.

      Right... because having loads of money makes you a great person... must mean everyone here on Marquee Blogs is just a piece of garbage.

    Katy Perry just needs to stay the heck away from Tim Tebow. She's on the rebound from Russell and she wants a man who's got the one thing he lacked: spirituality. Tebow just needs to stay far, far away from that girl.

    That would be an interesting couple. Maybe Katy is trying to get back to her "religious roots" haha. I doubt it would happen, but it's a lot better than the story my co-worker had mentioned about Kim K. wanting a piece of the Tebow... that was just outright disturbing.

    This is roughly the equivalent of Madonna hitting on the Dalai Lama. I hope Tim has his shots.

      First! That is roughly the equivalent of a kindergartener's behavior at recess. Growing up is optional.
