Adele, you playin’?
Yesterday, while performing at a LA show, we reported that Adele said she turned down the opportunity to perform at 2017’s Super Bowl halftime show, but the NFL and halftime show sponsor Pepsi are DENYING that an official offer was ever put on the table. Now, I’m wont to believe Adele, but why would Pepsi and the NFL deny asking Adele to perform? Seems weird.
On Sunday, the NFL and Pepsi released the following joint statement:
“The NFL and Pepsi are big fans of Adele. 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.”
Hmmm, what’s the deal with this? I guess we’ll find out who they chose on Feb. 5, 2017, when the show airs?
