There was a buzz last week when word came that the NFL had approached Adele about performing at the halftime of Super Bowl XLI.

But Adele told fans at a concert in Los Angeles that she had declined the offer.

“Well, come on, I mean, come on, that show is not about music and I really don’t dance or anything like that,” Adele said.

She joked that maybe she will in the future because she’s going to do a dance album next.

Here is a clip from the show (and warning Adele uses some salty language):
