What do the Stars HAVE to have in their dressing rooms?
Justin Bieber has to have Herbal tea, deli meats, veggies, Swedish Fish, and Ritz Bits (in both cheese and peanut butter varieties). No Selena Gomez music! Apparently someone's still a little sore about their on-again, off-again romance...AND: no speaking directly to Justin Bieber.
Mariah Carey: According to her contract rider obtained by The Smoking Gun, she's been known to demand chilled Cristal, two dozen white roses, and dark-colored couches without busy patterns for her dressing room. Of course, that's nothing compared to her rumored 2009 demand for 20 white kittens and 100 white doves to be released while she turned on Christmas lights at Westfield London Shopping Centre. The demand could not be met due to health hazards.
Christina Aguilera: During her heyday, Christina Aguilera's contract rider was a little bizarre, but not too over-the-top — the singer demanded items like Flintstones vitamins, Oreo cookies, and soy cheese. Oh wait, we must have missed the part demanding a police escort to route Xtina's car through any potential traffic delays.
Lady Gaga: From “a mannequin with puffy pink pubic hair” to 28 bottles of water at room temperature and 28 cold, Mother Monster’s requests run the gamut from totally bizarre to oddly specific.
Katy Perry: According to The Smoking Gun, Katy Perry’s backstage dream suite includes “two cream-colored egg chairs, one of which should have a footstool,” as well as a refrigerator with a glass door. The “Wide Awake” singer is also firmly anti-carnation. “ABSOLUTELY NO CARNATIONS,” her rider specifies.
Beyonce: All crew members have to wear 100% cotton. Alkaline water must be chilled to 21 degrees and served with $900 titanium straws. Bathrooms must have new toilet seats and red toilet paper at every venue. Hand-carved ice balls should be made after each show to cool her throat.
Tom Cruise: While touring the Adriatic Sea in his luxury yacht, the Rock of Ages star stopped in the port of Kotor and asked the manager of the five-star Forza Mare to clear out the 10-room boutique hotel so that he could spend quality solo time with his dinner. The manager balked at the request — and rightly so — so a disgruntled Tom had a seafood spread delivered to his yacht instead.
