Adele Says She Turned Down Super Bowl Offer

Adele Says She Turned Down Super Bowl Offer

Associated Press

“I don’t dance.” 

Consider some of your pop culture hopes and dreams dashed. At a performance in Los Angeles over the weekend, Adele told fans and concertgoers that she would not be headlining the Super Bowl halftime show in 2017.

"First of all, I'm not doing the Super Bowl," the singer said, addressing a rumor started by a British tabloid. "I mean, come on, that show is not about music. And I don't really - I can't dance or anything like that. They were very kind, they did ask me, but I did say no. I'm sorry, but maybe next time."

According to Billboard, after Adele addressed the gossip the NFL and Pepsi released a joint statement to set the record straight:

"The NFL and Pepsi are big fans of Adele. We have had conversations with several artists about the Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show. However, we have not at this point extended a formal offer to Adele or anyone else. We are focused on putting together a fantastic show for Houston and we look forward to revealing that in good time."

Ok, but never say never, guys.
