The Chasing Pavements songbird is currently under strict instructions to rest her voice after undergoing surgery on her vocal chords.

However, although she may have stepped out of the limelight momentarily to recover, she has not been forgotten by the Grammy Awards.

Earlier this month, Adele received six nominations ahead of the prestigious US ceremony, including nods for Record Of The Year with Rolling In The Deep and Best Pop Solo Performance for Someone Like You.

But while she Adela is admired for having the likeability of the girl-next-door - touring is a different agenda.

She demands only the very best when it comes to her alcoholic beverages which she teams with an array of junk food and cigarettes to get her through her performances.

As laid out in her tour rider for the singer's cancelled North America tour, she requires a bottle of 'very best quality red wine' in her dressing room.

It must be either Italian, French or Spanish, the document, leaked by the Smoking Gun, revealed.

And for her tour bus, she must be provided with two more bottles of red wine from the same four nations, or Australia, along with 12 bottles of beer.

The beer must be top quality European brands, including Stella Artois, Becks or Peroni.

She adds: 'North American beer is not acceptable.'

Adele's dressing room must also be stocked with a pack of Marlboro Light cigarettes with a disposable lighter.

The cupboards must be stocked with a plate of assorted individually wrapped sandwiches which include chicken salad but not containing tomatoes, vinegar, chili or citrus fruit.

She also requires a selection of fresh fruit, 'squeezy' bottles of clear honey, 12 small bottles of still water and an assortment of chewing gum.

Her tour bus must also be stocked with a selection of 'bite size' chocolate bars, box of museli, six cereal bars, 24 bottles of still water, a carton of orange juice and a carton of apple juice.

But the delectables are merely snacks and the tour rider state that hosts must liaise with the artist production manager to discuss options for after-show food.

It sets out: 'We will require food (Pizzas? Sandwiches? Something more exciting?) to feed 26 hungry people.'

Adele's band make similar requests to the singer accept ask that a bottle of Grey Goose vodka be added to their dressing room along with 'best quality' Californian Sauvignon Blanc, but 'NO CHARDONNAY!).

The tour rider also states that recipients of free tickets provided by the singer herself, concert promoters or venue staff must donate $20 when they collect their tickets at the box office.

'There will be no exception to this rule,' the document notes.

The money will go to Sands, a UK-based charity dedicated to supporting those affected by the death of a baby and promoting research to reduce the loss of babies lives.
