Why Adele Has Been Kept In ‘Isolation’ During Her Tour

Adele may be surrounded by crowds of thousands on her world tour, but it’s a different story backstage.

The 27-year-old singer has revealed that she’s been forced into near-solitary confinement while on the road, in a bid to stave off any illnesses.

She told fans at London’s O2 Arena earlier this week: ‘I’ve basically been in isolation because I don’t want to get ill. I didn’t want to take a chance with my voice.

‘I’ve been taking echinacea four times a day. I’ve been on the Berocca.

‘I’m on a really strict regime. Basically, I’m living on leaves but I do get to eat pasta before the show because it gives me energy for when I get on stage.’

Phew. What’s life without the odd bowl of pasta, eh? So why’s Adele being so careful with her health?

Well, you may remember that back in 2011, she had to undergo throat surgery after suffering a vocal haemorrhage. Because of this, she was forced to cancel a number of live shows.

To ensure this doesn’t happen again, she’s been placed on a strict diet and imposed an alcohol ban on herself.

But there’s one downside to her new way of living. She continued: ‘I’ve got acne. I know we all get spots but you lot ain’t got your face on a big screen like that!

‘Imagine trying to pop a spot with these nails – you’ll do more damage.’

Lolz. We’d never have guessed, lady.
