NFL & Pepsi Deny Offering Adele Super Bowl Halftime Show

NFL & Pepsi Deny Offering Adele Super Bowl Halftime Show

It sounds like Adele wasn’t asked to play the 2017 Super Bowl Halftime Show after all.

The NFL and Pepsi just released a statement denying the 28-year-old singer’s claim that she turned down the offer.

“The NFL and Pepsi are big fans of Adele,” the organizations told Billboard. “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 reportedly told the crowd at her show this weekend that she said no because “that show is not about music.”

    This seems like it is just getting into semantics and that JJ/all media outlets “reporting” this are trying to make a story out of nothing and Super Bowl/Pepsi are trying to make Adele seem like a lair for some reason (maybe to create illusion that no one would ever turn down the Super Bowl?). They probably didn’t officially offer her the gig as in contract and everything, but it seems likely that they reached out to her and she said no before they got very far in the process.
