Katy Perry showed no sign of fatigue or stress from any divorce drama stemming from her recent split with ex Russell Brand at a pre-Super Bowl 2012 event in Indianapolis, Indiana: the DIRECTV Super Saturday Night Hosted by Mark Cuban and Peyton Manning. Perry performed nine songs for party guests in what was actually her first U.S. concert since the big breakup. And she totally got into the football spirit with a sexy-sporty costume and even a special dedication aimed at one very buzzed-about football stud: Tim Tebow.
As People reports, the “Last Friday Night” singer’s big kick-off to the show at 11:45 P.M. had her bursting through a banner with her name on it, “just like a hometown gridiron hero.” Her skimpy ensemble drew more stares: super short, skin-tight Spandex shorts paired with a sparkling top that paid tribute to both teams (it was a half-Patriots, half-Giants jersey!). Talk about a touchdown, in the fashion department, that is.
But maybe the most attention-grabbing gesture made by the bright blue-haired Katy Perry during her stage time was the joking dedication of her “Peacock” song to one special guy. “This one goes out to Tim Tebow,” she announced, perhaps sassily playing on her ultra-conservative parents unsolicited blessing given to Tebow awhile back, giving him permission to date their daughter. The handsome Denver Broncos quarterback certainly has caught the eye of many female admirers, both celebrity and otherwise. He may just be the NFL’s most eligible bachelor!
But, Tebow wasn’t the only person Katy Perry was humorously crushing on during Saturday night’s event. She also gushed, “Who else is excited for Madonna?” of course referring to Madge’s Super Bowl halftime show on Sunday. And the fun apparently didn’t stop after Perry’s show. An insider said, “She was having the best time and was in such a great mood.” Russell Brand, who?!
