Celebrities' Bizarre Backstage Demands

You’ve heard rumors about celebrities' weird diva demands. Lady Gaga needs a mannequin backstage with pink pubic hair. J.Lo won't even step inside a hotel if the décor isn’t all white, not to mention Britney Spears demands tubs of potato salad. Of course she does.

Lady Gaga: During Lady Gaga’s Monster Ball tour she specifically asked for a mannequin with puffy pink pubic hair. Why? No reason.

Elton John: Elton John reportedly asked for a second hotel room while on tour recently just to house his collection of glasses. Yes, glasses, as in which you use to see. He also needed the temperature in the room to be exactly 60 degrees.

Britney Spears: During her first and only season on “American Idol,” (you’ll see why) she demanded 34 Herve Leger dresses, 12 Snickers bars, six cases of Diet Coke to be replenished each week, 10 bags of Doritos, 12 vases of magnolia blossoms, 10 pieces of chicken and four pints of potato salad. Welcome to the trailer park, y’all!

Justin Bieber: Bieber requests lots of socks and T-shirts while on tour and wife-beaters in a variety of sizes. He also needs a private bathroom with a full-length mirror so he can take selfies, naturally.

Madonna: Madonna’s weird demand is basically a room renovation. When she tours, she requires all furniture be removed from the rooms and replaced with her own pieces that she has shipped in. It is said that the singer demands 20 international phone lines in the room as well as special white and pink roses that must have the stems cut to six inches. 

Katy Perry: Katy Perry needs a frickin’ florist when she travels, making demands that include stocking her dressing room with white and purple hydrangeas, pink and white roses, and peonies. She doesn’t really like seasonal white flowers like orchids and draws the line with carnations. Absolutely NO carnations, she writes.

Jennifer Lopez: When J.Lo checks into a hotel, the whole room has to be done in white. She asks for two dozen Ecuadorian white roses, white leather sofas, white covers for the chairs and even white food, like fish. You put a piece of salmon on her plate and she’ll LOOSE IT!

Kanye West: On his tour rider, he demands having Versace towels which are then cut into smaller sizes so he can use them onstage, which we’re sure is fashion blasphemy. Also, you can’t wear polyester anything in his presence. His drivers and crew are required to wear nothing but 100% cotton while working with him. If you try to shake his hand while wearing Nylon, he will have to politely and disrespectfully decline.
