rumor has it

NFL reportedly eyeing Adele for next Super Bowl halftime show

Reports suggest the NFL is after the British songstress Adele to perform in the Super Bowl LI halftime show in February, following her wildly successful year. "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," an NFL insider allegedly told The Sun. "She's sold out every date on her tour, everyone wants a piece of her and they know they can bank on her bringing in the viewers."

However, that same insider said, the NFL is reportedly having a tough time getting Adele to sign on because of anxiety over performing in front of big crowds. "It's Adele's nerves that are the issue — it hasn't been an easy sell," the insider reportedly said.

Neither Adele nor the NFL has confirmed whether there's any truth to the rumors, or if we're all just chasing pavements.
