Beyonce's alleged tour demands include red toilet paper, titanium drinking straws
UPI.com ^ | May 1, 2013 | Kate Stanton

Posted on 05/03/2013 2:41:08 PM PDT by rickmichaels

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."

Sounds like she might like perfume for her poop too, assuming that it needs it.

The other stuff is just fracking weirder still.

I’ll leave the “balls to suck on” for other, wiser (or more experienced) commentators...

but pray tell, why does she need, or even want, “red toilet paper!?”

(and what does that do to the environment?)

Is “red toilet paper” a roll with pictures of a certain CasaBlanca Occupant on each sheet, or?

Red toilet paper doesn’t sound eco-friendly.

Reminds me about David Lee Roth and no brown M&Ms. DLR had a point with that. He wanted to make sure the contract was read and followed properly.

She should also order some talent pills.

Music lessons would be nice, too.

My mind didn't go to the gutter until I saw that.

At least that referred to a woman for once with the news lately. Holy crap. Someone famous is straight?!

Beyonce is getting bad advice on clothing, costume, lip-synching, repertoire, dance moves, and attitude. She is also getting old and the Powers That Be may be setting her up to do something REALLY stupid in order to be replaced with a fresh new model.

Remember Whitney and Michael. Both of them had MUCH more talent than Beyonce, but it did not save them from the machine. Both met with an untimely and sad ending, mostly their own fault, but the end was preceded by an ever increasing acceleration of public gaffes, crazy moves, and ridicule. Then, after they died, the PTB exploited their deaths with lavish funerals and histrionics.

Watch out, Beyonce! (This is just an opinion based upon observation.)

She doesn’t want her toilet paper color to clash with her poop.

These people get away with demands like this because some idiot will agree to them. They should be told to go suck an egg and stay somewhere else. But the fact is the places where they stay rip them off so bad they can meet their demands and still make a profit. They enjoy being ripped off OR they are too stupid to realize it’s happening.

Beyonce isn’t a Diva, just a nasty Hybrid woman of mixed blood who thinks she is showing off with these demands when she is really just showing her ass, as the saying goes.

Just an increase in ticket prices. The only people ripped off are fans. And they pay willingly so no foul really. Dumb. But as long as they feed the machine, it’s a monster of their own making.

Same for pro sports fans.

Maybe she suffers from bleeding hemorrhoids and doesn’t want to see blood on white toilet paper.

Correct without a production company, they are nothing.
If showing off your “whence we came”, is talent all women would be billionaires.

I wouldn’t bet on her “sexuality”

from what little I have seen of these modern “singers” ....
(I do try desperately to tune them OUT),
their “sexuality” can range from one end of the Zoo to the other.

Eh, Streisand needed rose petals in the water to sh*t through, so really anything else is piking. So Beyonce wants titanium straws? Heck, I had titanium hips installed, so she’s just drinking through my a$$.

Let her. She’s mine now.

Once they have worn out their welcome with the fans (Through gaffes, demands, poor performances, Bad decisions, etc) they are WORTH MUCH MORE to their handlers as “The Late Great”. Witness the HUGE Surge of Downloads and cd sales immediately after the death of a diva.

I hope I don’t sound TOO cynical.

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.

While I don't prescribe to conspiracy theories, there is a certain morbid, economic logic to offing once popular stars

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
