Adele Has Great Reason for Saying No to Super Bowl 'I mean, come on, that show is not about music' By Newser Editors, Newser Staff Posted Aug 14, 2016 3:13 PM CDT 34 comments Comments In this Feb. 24, 2016 file photo shows Adele onstage at the Brit Awards 2016 at the 02 Arena in London.

That according to the singer herself, who on Saturday told concertgoers at LA's Staples Center that she's not doing the Super Bowl. Her explanation as reported by Billboard is pretty great: "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." Pepsi and the NFL, however, had a different take on how discussions have gone down.
