Are Tim Tebow and singer Katy Perry a romantic item? Inquiring minds want to know, and there are no minds more inquiring than the 100 kids who gathered to greet Tebow on Monday at the Challengers Boys & Girls Club in south Los Angeles. Obviously tuned in to the rumors that the two may have hooked up during Super Bowl weekend, the kids asked the question that no adult reporters may have had the courage to ask. Tebow’s response, via the Washington Post:

During a question-and-answer session with the kids, one query in particular got the loudest reaction of all. Tebow was asked if he “has a thing” with pop singer Katy Perry.

“No, me and Katy Perry don’t have a thing, but she’s a very good artist,” he said, smiling.

Tebow’s female fans might be glad to hear there’s no special woman he’ll be sharing Valentine’s Day with on Tuesday.

“I’m single … “ he said, “but I’m doing just fine though. I’ll just be around my brothers and friends. We’ll just have a good time.”

Perry dedicated a song to Tebow during a pre-Super Bowl party last week, and during the NFL Honors show on Saturday, gave Tebow another shout-out: “Hey Tim, my parents say hi.” Perry’s parents are ministers, as are Tebow’s.

Also, Perry’s suite for the game was right next to Tebow’s, reportedly.

    Tim, one of the commandments is though shall not lie, “…but she’s a very good artist.”

    Shouldn’t there be a height/age limit for posting here?

    Does she have gray hair in that picture? Do granny panties go with that look as well?
