Flamboyant pop star Katy Perry dedicated suggestive song "Peacock" to evangelical quarterback Tim Tebow at a pre-Super Bowl party Saturday night.
Perry, the daughter of Christian ministers, said "This one goes out to Tim Tebow," before singing the single at the DIRECTV Sixth Annual Celebrity Beach Bowl party Saturday night in Indianapolis, Ind. – her first U.S. concert since her separation from husband Russell Brand – reported Indy Star. There is no report that Tebow was at that party when Perry gave a shout-out to him.
But the two sort-of met earlier on Saturday at the NFL Honors ceremony, where Perry spotted Denver Broncos quarterback Tebow in the front row and said to him while on stage, "Hey Tim, my parents say hi."
Perry's parents, who are evangelical pastors with a church in Huntington Beach, Calif., have said that they wanted to set up their daughter with Tebow, who they think would have a good influence on her with his strong Christian faith.
A source told OK! Magazine that Perry's mother thinks "Tebow is the perfect guy for her daughter."
"He's handsome, charming, intelligent and above all, a good Christian."
The source also said that Keith and Mary Hudson are trying to coordinate a schedule where their daughter performs at the church the same time Tebow is scheduled to speak there.
Perry is perhaps best known for her breakthrough song "I Kissed a Girl," a surprising song for a singer who had her start in the Christian music industry and who was raised by ultra conservative Christian parents. In December, Russell Brand filed for divorce from Perry, just after 14 months of marriage.
The successful pop star is in the 2010 Guinness Book of World Records for the "Best Start on the US Digital Chart by a Female Artist." Perry is also named MTV's Artist of the Year in 2011, and won several awards at the 38th People's Choice Awards earlier this year, including "Favorite Female Artist."
