Celebrities are some high-maintenance people. Musicians have something called a “tour rider” which dictates everything they need, nay DEMAND, to have backstage.
Celebrity demand requests run the spectrum from “just plain weird” to “obsessively diva.”
These are the weirdest celeb requests.
When Lindsay Lohan shot her nude scene in The Canyons, she demanded that the crew get naked with her, because nothing makes a sex scene weirder like a crew orgy.
Beyoncé demands red toilet paper backstage at all her concerts, so she can be sure it hasn’t been used.
Lady Gaga demanded a mannequin with puffy pink pubic hair be kept backstage at all her shows. Why? No idea.
Paris Hilton had a cameo in the Mark Wahlberg film, The Other Guys (that ended up getting cut…we wonder why) and for her one day of work, she reportedly demanded fresh lobster for dinner and a bottle of Grey Goose vodka.
Mariah Carey’s list of necessities includes puppies at her venues (her own puppies or stray puppies? We’ll never know), white doves, and that handlers carry individual stashes of toilet paper on them at all times.
Versace, Versace, Versace, Versace. Kanye West demands ONLY Versace towels backstage at his concerts and then he cuts them in half for some insane reason.
This one is barely believable, but George Clooney supposedly demanded a beach hut and a hot tub be installed next to his trailer when he filmed the movie Gravity.
Jay Z demands “good quality” peanut butter and jelly backstage. Err, ok.
During one of Janet Jackson’s infamous '90s concerts, she included in her rider that there should be absolutely NO FISH ICE, whatever that is.
Back in 2011 when Britney Spears performed at the London 02 arena, she demanded McDonald’s cheeseburgers with no buns, prunes, and a framed photo of Princess Diana. We WISH we were making this up.
