During her Los Angeles Concert this weekend, singer Adele decided to tell the audience that she turned down the NFL’s offer to perform at the 2017 Super Bowl XXXVIII in Houston.
The only thing about her announcement of refusal, is that the NFL and Pepsi are both saying that Adele was never asked to perform during 2017 Super Bowl XXXVIII.

Here is what Adele said to a cheering crowd: “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.”
She concluded with, “I’m sorry, but maybe next time.”
That’s ok Adele, the NFL and Pepsi told Billboard in a joint statement that is debunking her words with:
“The NFL and Pepsi are big fans of Adele. We have had conversations with several artists about the Pepsi Superbowl 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.”
The last time that Houston, Texas hosted Super Bowl, the performers were Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake in 2004 when Janet and Justin did a shocking end to their performance live.
Past performers have been Prince, Madonna, the Rolling Sones, Beyonce, Bruno Mars and Red Hot Chili Peppers, Katy Perry, Lenny Kravitz and Missy Elliot, Cold Play with Beyonce and Bruno Mars joining in.
