Beyonce's alleged tour demands include red toilet paper, titanium drinking straws

Having outlandish demands is essential for any performer aspiring to diva-dom. And according to rumors, Beyonce is no exception.

The Daily Star is reporting that Beyonce, currently traveling on her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, has an impressive list of diva demands as part of her tour rider, the contractual list of conditions performance venues are expected to meet for their artists.

According to the site, the 31-year-old performer has asked for titanium drinking straws that cost around $935, red toilet paper, "hand-carved ice balls to suck on," cotton clothes for her staff, and "freshly painted white walls."

“Working so hard and with the toll the travel takes on her body in addition to the intense shows, she feels that her requests aren’t too much to ask for as she wants to ensure everything goes to plan.” a source said.

E! News reported that a representative of London's O2 Arena said Beyonce has requested the use of brand new dressing rooms for artists, as well as the large space normally reserved for sports teams.

Some gossip bloggers immediately criticized Beyonce's apparently diva-like tour requirements. Perez Hilton called them "wackadoo," while The Stir's Ericka Sóuter wrote, "Beyonce's tour demands reveal what a crazy diva she really is."

She might have been but it seemed to get a whole lot worse after she hooked up with Booobeey.

Poor, poor downtrodden American blacks. They’re sooooo mistreated here!

Oh, if only she could have been born in Kenya.

Some of these could be contract compliance indicators. If they get this stuff righ, it’s likely that they get the other stuff right

I had read during the enshrinement of her divinity that it was she who really introduced HIM to the hard stuff (Coke and Heroin). Prior to that he was just a pot dude/casual user

It’s really pretty simple - what outrageous amoung of money are they paying you? And why can’t you get these crazy things yourself within that amount of money you’re being paid?

While it might be a stretch to say that the industry “OFFs” them, they certainly “never let a crisis go to waste”.

Fame and fortune allows their every desire to come true. Surrounded by parasitic sycophants(including their managers, company, etc.) that never say no to their "host" in the end their appetites eventually kills them

Exactly. Was going to say the same thing. I would bet though hat Beyonce isn’t as smart as is just being a high maintenance bitch. :-)

Red toilet paper doesn’t sound eco-friendly.

When Nanny Bloomberg outlaws red dye #5, only outlaws will dye it.

Me three. Roth could have lost his life if that contract wasn’t followed correctly. I kind of doubt that Beyonce is in the same situation.

She should remember the old saying: “The toes you step on on the way up may be connected to the *ss you have to kiss on the way down.”

Because of the risk to both gear and human life if it wasn’t Fire, electrical short, malfunction of stage equipment...at that rate, YES it’s sane to make sure a place doesn’t fudge weight for props or juice for your gear.

She’s batshit crazy tho, far beyond “Make sure they know the stage rigging has to hold X lbs and the electrical can handle X watts.”
