Adele says she declined Super Bowl halftime show offer
The NFL is already canvassing potential performers for the Super Bowl LI halftime show, and we can already name one singer who will not be there.
Amid reports that the NFL was in hot pursuit of her for the halftime show, Adele told the crowd at her show in Los Angeles on Saturday night that it wasn’t happening.
“First of all, I’m not doing the Super Bowl,” Adele said, via Alex Stedman of Variety. “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 said no.”
At first glance, Adele isn’t really an obvious pick for a Super Bowl audience, but she’s extremely popular and wouldn’t cause any controversy, much like last year’s main act. The NFL’s search, unfortunately for them, will have to go on.
