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 arent 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."
A Baaaaad Decision.
Maybe I’m old, or I don’t listen to music stations on the radio (except for the Oldies), but I do not know who this Beyonde person is. I remember, though, a disc jockey named Dick Biondi.
Pretty girl- until she opens her mouth. Then she is ghetto-and her choice in men is too. Can’t sing worth a damn, but if she’s half naked most men don’t care.
Perez had better concern hisself with his sister Paris.
Heck, Elvis made more money dead than he did when he was alive(IIRC)
Michael Jackson's records were near non existent when he died.
The added Plus is dead stars are easier to manage.....
Hmmmmmm Bye Bye BounCEE
While it might be a stretch to say that the industry “OFFs” them, they certainly “never let a crisis go to waste”.
I like your tag line....I’m going to “borrow” it...
Whitney was doing drugs long before she met Bobby Brown.
Death is always a good career move.
She might have been but it seemed to get a whole lot worse after she hooked up with Booobeey.
I’m bad ‘un.
She’ll be on celebrity rehab before we know it.
And you’re still innocent....
Poor, poor downtrodden American blacks. They’re sooooo mistreated here!
Oh, if only she could have been born in Kenya.
I stand corrected!
Some of these could be contract compliance indicators. If they get this stuff righ, it’s likely that they get the other stuff right
