Katy Perry got her Super Bowl on over the weekend in Indianapolis. The Grammy-nominated singer donned some colorful gear when she headlined the DIRECTV Super Saturday Night party, but it’s the folks she shouted out during the bash’s performance that drew attention.
When Perry took the stage the night before the New York Giants beat the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI, she wore a football-themed outfit (jersey-style top and short shorts) and busted through a banner with her name on it, People.com reported.
The singer asked the crowd, “Who else is excited for Madonna? That’s the only reason that I came!”
Madge, of course, took the stage on Sunday for the Super Bowl halftime show , which featured gladiator fashions by Givenchy and appearances from M.I.A., Nicki Minaj, LMFAO and Cee Lo Green.
Madonna’s daughter, Lourdes, was in attendance at Perry’s show, as were Shaquille O’Neal, Neil Patrick Harris and his partner David Burtka, Chris Meloni, and Scott Wolf.
Before Perry launched into her cheerleader anthem-sounding Teenage Dream track “Peacock,” she shouted out one football player who wasn’t even playing in Sunday’s big game: “This one goes out to Tim Tebow,” she said.
According to E! News, earlier on Saturday at the NFL Honors ceremony, Perry presented an award to Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton and had another message for Tebow. “Hey Tim, my parents say hi,” she said. Perry’s parents are reportedly trying to matchmake the pair.
While Perry spent her weekend teasing Tebow at various events, a source who attended the ESPN Next party on Friday night tell MTV News that Tebow spent the night flirting with TV host Maria Menounos. The two chatted it up while Drake handed out shots to the women in attendance before performing at the party. Kellan Lutz, Matthew Morrison, Jermaine Dupri, Cam Newton, Plaxico Burress, Michael Strahan, Vivica Fox, Sherri Shepherd, Spike Lee, Connor Cruise and Blake Shelton were also spotted at the bash.
