Adele and the Super Bowl are different kinds of acts, explained the British singer at a concert over the weekend as rumors swirled and the NFL and Pepsi rushed to say an offer was never formally extended.

Adele told her sold-out crowd at Los Angeles' Staple Center on Saturday that the high-profile Super Bowl gig -- scheduled for Houston's NRG Stadium on Feb. 5 -- "is not about music," per a video of her comments.



"I mean, come on, that show is not about music," Adele said. "And I don't really put on… I don't dance or anything like that. They were very kind, they did ask me, but I did say no."

The NFL and its halftime sponsor Pepsi issued a joint statement on Sunday to Billboard magazine saying they hadn't issued an invitation to any artist to perform at the upcoming Super Bowl.

"The NFL and Pepsi are big fans of Adele," they said, per Billboard. "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."

The Super Bowl has drawn some of the biggest names in the music business, with Coldplay, Beyonce, and Bruno Mars performing at last February's Super Bowl at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California. Katy Perry performed at University of Phoenix Stadium the year before.

The Super Bowl's use of pop stars to headline its halftime performances date back to 1993 when Michael Jackson performed, noted The Associated Press. Other performers have included Madonna, Prince, U2, the Rolling Stones, and Bruce Springsteen.

Some on social media wondered why the NFL would rush out to refute Adele while others said she made the right choice.
