We’ve all heard that the backstage demands of some musicians can be pretty out there, but Beyonce’s outrageous tour rider demands for her ‘Mrs. Carter Show World Tour’ might just take the cake.
According to the Daily Telegraph, the diva makes some pretty high-demand requests like requiring $900 worth of titanium straws to sip her special alkaline water perfectly chilled to 21 degrees.
Other diva demands include hand-carved ice balls to suck on at the end of every concert to help protect her vocal chords; insisting that all members of her crew wear cotton clothing so there won’t be allergy problems on the road; her dressing room walls must be freshly painted, and the bathroom must have a new toilet seat installed and red toilet paper.
As for the backstage food and snacks, the diva has banned all junk food and only allows green vegetables, oatcakes and plates of almonds served in glass platters.
