The report says the two sides are in talks ahead of Super Bowl 51 at NRG Stadium in Houston on February 5, 2017. Lady Gaga also performed at Super Bowl 50, singing the national anthem prior to the Panthers-Broncos matchup. Coldplay was the halftime act.
“We have had conversations with several fantastic artists about the Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show. However, at this point we do not have a final decision,” the league told Billboard.com when asked about Gaga. “We’re happy there is so much excitement about the show.”
In August, Adele told fans during a performance at the Staples Center, “First of all, I’m not doing the Super Bowl. 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.”
A short time later, the NFL denied formerly offering Adele the gig, adding that “We are focused on putting together a fantastic show for Houston and we look forward to revealing that in good time.”
