The Super Bowl halftime show is one of the biggest gigs in the music industry — but Adele just isn’t interested.
The “Hello” singer has confirmed that she has been approached about performing at the 2017 Super Bowl but she flat-out turned them down.
Adele was performing at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Saturday — as part of her sold-out run of eight concerts there — when she took a moment to clear up some rumors, including talk that she’s pregnant again.
“I was like, what do you mean that I’m pregnant? I was like, of course I’m not pregnant,” she said, before moving onto discussing American football’s biggest event.
“I’m not doing the Super Bowl,” she said. “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,” she added.
But perhaps Adele doesn’t have all the details exactly right, as the NFL and Pepsi — the main sponsor of the halftime show — said in a statement on Sunday that they don’t know what she’s talking about.
“The NFL and Pepsi are big fans of Adele,” the statement read. “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.”
