Adele’s rider has been uncovered just days before her Brit Awards performance and reveals very modest demands after being branded a Diva.
The Hello singer faced huge backlash last month after fans turned on her when she pulled out of her Las Vegas residence at the last minute.
Adele was branded a ‘Diva’ for pulling the plug on her Vegas residence after deciding she didn’t like the look of the set – despite fans spending thousands on flights, hotels and tickets to see her on stage.
As reported by The Mirror, despite being labeled a diva after disappointing her loyal fans, her simple requests for Tuesday night’s Brit Awards may leave people surprised as they included Percy Pig sweets, fruit, PG Tips and some wine.
A source told The Sun on Sunday: “Back in the day, Adele’s dressing room would have been a right knees-up but now it could not be any more different.
“She still loves her wine but is much more thoughtful about her other choices.”
The Sun’s report also suggests Adele has changed her demands from those back in 2011 when she took to the Brits stage asking for cigarettes and chewing gum.
According to a source, Adele is hoping she can turn the tide of public opinion back on her side after she caused upset by canceling her Vegas shows.
They said: “There’s a lot of pressure on her for Tuesday’s show so she’s not going to be boozing ahead of time. Ella she knows Vegas was a big let-down for fans, so she wants to make it up to them.”
Adele was due to begin a residence at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace on January 21 that in a run due to last until April 16 – but she canceled all the shows due to ‘delivery delays and Covid’ the day before her first date.
But subsequent reports suggested the singer had canned her shows – which have yet to be rescheduled – as a water-themed set was rejected and her romance with sports businessman Rich Paul hit the rocks.
A source told Closer magazine last week: “Adele’s not in a good way, she’s struggling to eat or sleep.
“Postponing residency wasn’t a decision she took lightly and she’s simply not used to such a backlash and such bitter attacks from fans.”
They continued: “She’s very sensitive and she isn’t someone who can just brush off such harsh criticism, no matter how many people urge her to ignore it.”
Meanwhile, conflicting reports have suggested Adele’s relationship with Rich – her first high-profile romance since her split from husband Simon Konecki with whom she shares a nine-year-old son – is going from strength to strength.
Some sources have claimed the pair are now living together, with a neighbor previously telling the Sunday People: “There’s been a lot of coming and going at the house in the last few days.
“I heard Adele has been staying there since Friday [January 21]. There’s security there which I’ve never seen before. They’ve hunkered down.”
