Adele to Finish ’25’ Era at Super Bowl?

This year has certainly been the year of Adele.

The British superstar released her third studio album “25,” kicked off a world tour and has been critically and commercially successful.

This year alone has made her the artist to watch. It’s no surprise the National Football League is talking about her just as much as anyone else.

Allegedly, an NFL source was quoted saying, “There is nobody bigger in the world than Adele right now and organizers are doing absolutely everything they can to try to persuade her to sign up (for the Super Bowl).”

While this news has excited millions, Adele weighed in on the allegations, saying, “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 did say no. I’m sorry.”

While this might seem like an open and close situation, much more controversy surrounds the “Hello” singer.

The NFL and Pepsi recently released a joint statement saying, “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.”

So, did she or didn’t she?

Whether or not Adele was offered the headlining spot at the Super Bowl halftime show remains to be up in the air due to conflicting statements, but it’s safe to say that we will not be seeing the British powerhouse at the biggest sporting event in America next year.

Despite this, Adele will still finish out her “25” tour strongly, especially when compared to her last tour for the album “21.”

Throughout 2011, Adele had to reschedule several shows due to acute laryngitis, but when October hit, she had to cancel 16 remaining shows in North America and several in Europe due to vocal cord hemorrhaging, crushing fans and the singer alike.

Her “25” tour was a triumphant return: she started out in Minneapolis and made it to Arizona before she was hit with a cold.

Luckily the songstress returned, with a rescheduled concert date and plenty of energy to get through the rest of her tour.

Her success this year is sure to garner many nominations and wins in this year’s award season, ending her “25 era on a bang, with or without a Super Bowl performance.
