The NFL’s annual Super Bowl has boasted a talented mélange of performers for the halftime show in recent years — including epic headliners Beyoncé, Bruno Mars, and Katy Perry’s dancing sharks  but we won’t be seeing the Tottenham queen herself, Adele, grace that testosterone-heavy field anytime soon. Responding to speculation that she might be performing at 2017’s halftime show, Adele confirmed that she was indeed offered the gig, but declined … with some of her signature cheek, to boot. “First of all, I’m not doing the Super Bowl,” she told the crowd at her Los Angeles concert on Saturday night. “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.” Never mind — the NFL will (try to) find someone like you, then.
