This goes out to Tim Tebow, 27-year-old Perry said before singing Peacock at DirectTV's Super Saturday night.
The song, which has suggestive lyrics, I wanna see your peacock, cock, cock, your peacock, cock, was dedicated to Broncos quarterback Tebow accompanied by some evocative dance moves and a glittery sporty outfit. Perry even ended the Peacock performance with Tebow's signature move.
Perry also mentioned the quarterback's name while presenting an award.
Hey Tim, my parents say hi, she said directed to Tebow sitting in the front row.
Perry announced in December that she and husband of 14 months Russell Brand split and are in the process of divorce.
We just finished 125 tour dates. So everything feels brand new, Perry said to the crowd on Saturday of the commencement of her world tour.
The dedication comes after countless rumors swirled that Perry's Christina pastor parents, Mary and Keith Hudson, want their daughter to date Tebow.
[Katy's] mentioned on more than one occasion how much she likes Tim, a source told OK! Magazine in early January.
Katy's mom firmly believes the best cure for heartache is to quickly fall in love again... In her mind, Tebow is the perfect guy for her daughter. He's handsome, charming, intelligent and above all, a good Christian.
According to The Daily Mail, Perry's parents were trying to set up a meeting between the pop singer and God's Quarterback.
However, Tim wasn't the only footballer Katy flirted with on Saturday, Cam Newton of the Carolina Panthers caught her eye as she presented him with the award for Offensive Rookie of the Year at the National Football League Honors.
She said: You'll be the first straight man I've had a photo with in a long time, so live up to it.
Katy's parents are said to have targeted Tim as a potential new son-in-law because he is above all, a good Christian.
A source said previously: Katy's mom firmly believes the best cure for heartache is to quickly fall in love again. In her mind, Tebow is the perfect guy for her daughter. He's handsome, charming, intelligent and above all, a good Christian.
Tebow wasn't the only athlete Perry was batting her eyelashes at during the Super Saturday Night performance. According to Bang Showbiz, Perry flirted with Cam Newton of the Carolina Panthers when she gave him the award for Offensive Rookie of the Year at the National Football League Honors.
You'll be the first straight man I've had a photo with in a long time, so live up to it, she said to Newton.
And her soon-to-be ex-husband seems to be moving on as well. Earlier this month, Brand was linked- to look-a-like Zooey Deschanel, as the comedian was reported desperate to hook up with the actress.
Russell has had his eye on Zooey for a long time, the source reportedly told OK!. And he's been sending funny, flirty texts to see if they can get together. He thinks she's hysterically funny and cute too. He loves her quirky sense of humor and thinks they'd be great together both on and off screen. There's a real spark there.
