Why Adele turned down Super Bowl performance

Adele has turned down an offer to perform at the 2017 Super Bowl halftime show.

The multiple Grammy Award-winning singer told fans at a concert on Saturday that she was asked to perform at the mammoth sporting event, but she declined as the event is “not about music.”

“First of all, I’m not doing the Super Bowl,” Adele said in a video posted on Twitter. “I mean, come on, that show is not about music.”

Adele is known for providing witty banter in between songs when performing live, but this time the Brit added a bit of venom when commenting on the American sports, advertising and entertainment bonanza.

“I don’t really — I can’t dance or anything like that,” she said. “They were very kind, they did ask me, but I did say no.”
“I’m sorry, but maybe next time.”

Beyoncé, Bruno Mars, Madonna, the Rolling Stones, Michael Jackson, Coldplay and Prince have all performed at the Super Bowl halftime show…but they are not Adele.
