Adele reveals that she turned down Super Bowl 2017 halftime show

Joe Williams August 15, 2016

The singer will not be performing a next year’s Super Bowl, despite the “very kind” offer.

Adele has revealed that she will not be following in the footsteps of fellow superstar singer’s Beyonce, Katy Perry and Madonna, after she refused the offer to perform during the infamous Super Bowl half time show.

“First of all, I’m not doing the Super Bowl. I mean, come on, that show is not about music,” she told fans during a gig in LA.

“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.”

Last week, Adele delighted to two gay audience members by accepting an invitation to their wedding next year – and even offering to perform!

The diva also recently invited a drag queen lookalike on stage, gushing: “You look so amazing! Oh my god. I actually really love that dress.”

The drag artist told the singer: “I impersonate you twice a week, that’s my job

“You seriously changed my life for the better. Dreams do come true.”

At a concert earlier this year, the singer broke down on stage while discussing Orlando.

She said: “Thank you so much for coming to my show. I would like to start tonight by dedicating this entire show to everybody at Pulse nightclub in Orlando.

“The LGBTQI community are like my soulmates, since I was really young so I’m pretty moved by it.”

She joked:”I don’t know why I’m crying already because most of tonight is pretty miserable, because most of my songs are f***ing miserable.

“I do have two songs that sound happy but they’re not. And if you like to dance this is your final chance, honestly because they have a beat.”
