We get it: Adele is not headed to the Super Bowl.

The National Football League and Pepsi released a joint statement on Monday, responding to the singer's recent revelation that she had turned down a coveted opportunity to perform on the halftime show. 

"The NFL and Pepsi are big fans of Adele. We have had conversations with several artists about the Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show," the statement reads. "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."

Informally or otherwise, Adele referenced those "conversations" with event organizers during a performance in Los Angeles on Saturday night.

"They were very kind. They did ask me, but I did say no. I'm sorry but maybe next time with my next album. I'm going to do a dance album next time," she told the crowd. "Also, I know I'm not Beyoncé. I don't dance or anything like that."

Beyonce stole the show at last year's Super Bowl Halftime -- and she ran the show in 2013, but could she do it again? We wouldn't be surprised! Although, many fans are hoping to see Jennifer Lopez take the stage in 2017.

But even J.Lo found herself a little awestruck by Adele last week! Watch her totally fangirl in the video below.
