Earlier today, video footage of Adele surfaced in which she dispels rumors that she will be performing in the 2017 Super Bowl halftime show. “First of all, I’m not doing the Super Bowl,” Adele told her Los Angeles crowd. “I mean, come on, that show is not about music. And I don’t really — I don't dance or anything like that. They were very kind, they did ask me, but I did say no.”
In a statement to Billboard, the NFL and Pepsi responded to Adele's statements by saying that she was never offered the performance. "The NFL and Pepsi are big fans of Adele," said NFL and Pepsi. "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."
Super Bowl 51 will take place at Houston’s NRG Stadium on Feb. 5, 2017.
