In early August, rumors surfaced that Adele was a favourite to headline the Super Bowl 51 halftime show following reports that the singer was approached by the NFL to perform at the February 2017 event in Houston. However, at Adele’s concert Saturday night at Los Angeles’ Staples Center, she confirmed that while she was offered the gig, she turned the opportunity down.

“First of all, I’m not doing the Super Bowl, 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. Maybe next time, for my next album, because I’m going to do a dance album next time. So maybe I’ll do it then.”

Adele also dismissed rumors that she is pregnant

“I’m having a cheese baby,” the singer joked, caressing her stomach –adding that the last time she was pregnant, no one in the media found out until she was seven months along. “Stupid rumors. They’re so fucking stupid”.

The NFL and Pepsi then issued a joint statement on Sunday denying that Adele was offered a spot at next year’s Super Bowl halftime show.

They said,

“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.”

    Adele for superbowl is a no no… Mayb anthem. Nobody wanna get depressed while eating pizza and getting chicken wings.. There is a reason why powerhouse vocalist such as whitney(even though she has quite alot of upbeat songs to chose from) Celine dion or Mariah carey never did it….. Usher should be given a shot, p!nk or turn it around and bring legends like Tina Turner( that woman could still dance on dem heels even t 70.
