"First of all, I'm not doing the Super Bowl," Adele says from the stage in a video posted on Twitter. "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."

She adds: "I'm sorry, but maybe next time."

Performers at previous halftime shows have included Beyonce, Madonna, the Rolling Stones and Prince.
