We all know demanding people in our day to day life. The person who MUST have a certain coffee cup from the company stash. The one who can't STAND if the office manager doesn't buy a certain creamer. That guy who complains to anyone who can hear if he has to park somewhere other than his "usual" spot.
Those people can be total buzzkills.
Well, guess what. Some of our celebrities can be demanding too. But this is what it takes to get them on the stage, so managers and reps and venue personnel the world over meet their demands and enjoy their brush with fame. (Or they don't. That's totally possible.)
Check out 29 outrageous celebrity tour demands! So. Many. Snacks. (And so. many. towels.)
Sigh. Once upon a time all she wanted backstage was Guitar Hero and Frosted Flakes because she didn't want to stop rocking. There's really no telling the myriad ways her demands have grown as she's gotten increasingly more...out there.
Pharrell Williams once requested a troupe of belly dancers. Guess that's why he was so damn happy. (Badum CHHHHH...)
Long before Kanye West was Kim Kardashian's baby daddy, his tour rider held the demand that his dressing suite be entirely white, floor to ceiling. Now he's added an $8,000 bed (EIGHT THOUSAND DOLLAR BED) for North, as well as the tot's own personal chef to make her favorite meals with organic foods.
Among some of Taylor Swift's very first tour demands were: edamame (which she noted came from the frozen aisle of the grocery store), Starbucks grandes, and Ben & Jerry's. Throw in some Ugg boots and it just doesn't get much more basic than T.Swift.
Kid Rock is a simple man, really. His request? Packs of Hanes or Fruit of the Loom underwear, white one-pocket tees, white tank tops, and white socks.
The No Doubt front-woman, solo artist, mom of three, and judge of The Voice *used to* request "bright white rooms," 30 bottles of water, 10 white towels, 4 white candles (all the same scent), and a pesticide-free buffet. (Are you sensing a trend here with all the requests for white everything?)
