Lady Gaga's rider includes a whole chicken and a small plate of "non smelly, non sweaty" cheese.

The 'Alejandro' hitmaker has as well stocked rider featuring plenty drinks and snacks, but a source close to the singer's touring party said the most essential items she asks for are honey and an oxygen tank, to help her preserve her voice, all of which must be served, alongside dinner, by five PM.

The tour source told The X Magazine: "The top two essential things to keep Gaga a happy monster are Manuka honey and an oxygen tank.

"She also requires a well-stocked supply of organic ginger and lemongrass tea, in addition to two bottles of white wine, preferably from Kendall Jackson or Robert Mondavi, and if her dinner of rotating international cuisine isn't ready by 5pm, the venue in question can be in breach of contract."

Other rider treats, which must be provided by venues on the singer's present Monster Ball tour include Containers of salsa and of guacamole with a large bag of tortilla chips, a small vegetable tray with ranch dip on ice and jars of peanut butter, grape, strawberry or raspberry jelly and StarKist tuna packed in water.

It was also recently revealed the flamboyant star is known among her crew as "Lady DullDull" because she is nothing like her outrageous onstage persona between venues.

A tour source said: "She gets all comfy in sweatpants and a baseball cap, then becomes the easygoing gal we jokingly call 'Lady DullDull', because she looks just like any one of us.

"And Stefani's sweet as a Jewish mom, always mediating and offering advice on the crew's dating problems, family issues, or whatever. She not only listens to everyone's problems, she gives really great advice on how to fix them."
