Keith Hudson, the evangelical minister father of pop star Katy Perry, known for her hit song “I Kissed a Girl,” which she performed at the Super Bowl in Phoenix on Sunday, told reporters prior to her appearance that he was proud of his daughter.
“Oh no, I don’t have a problem,” he told the Daily Mail when asked if he had any issue with her scheduled performance at the event. “I’m always proud. I’m a proud father.”
“She’s gonna do some good [songs],” Hudson said. “She’s excited.”
Hudson, 67, said that he was going to attend the Super Bowl on Sunday just to see his daughter perform.
“Hanging out with our pastor @jentezen at the #SuperBowl waiting for #katyperry and #halftime,” he wrote on Facebook Sunday evening. Hudson also shared a Tweet that his daughter had posted earlier that day of Psalm 118, which read, “Today is the day the Lord has made! I will rejoice and be glad in it!”
As previously reported, Perry performed several songs during the show, including “Roar,” “California Gurls,” “Teenage Dream” and “Fireworks.” During “Roar,” the pop star rode a giant mechanical lion, and during “California Girls” and “Teenage Dream” she was accompanied by dancers dressed in shark costumes.
“Let’s go all the way tonight/No regrets, just love,” she sang during “Teenage Dream.” “[I’ll] let you put your hands on me in my skin-tight jeans/Be your teenage dream tonight.”
