Adele may have spoken a little too soon.
Just a day after the British singer said she declined an offer to perform in the 2017 Super Bowl halftime show, the National Football League denied that it extended an invitation, Billboard reports.
“First of all, I’m not doing the Super Bowl,” Adele told fans at Los Angeles’ Staples Center on Aug. 13. “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.”
On Sunday, the NFL and Pepsi, which are partners in the halftime show gave a joint statement regarding Adele’s remarks.
“The NFL and Pepsi are big fans of Adele,” they said. “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.”
Super Bowl is scheduled to take place on Feb. 5 at Houston’s NRG Stadium. Beyoncé, Coldplay, and Bruno Mars were last year’s performers.
