She’s a worldwide super star and it seems that Beyoncé has rider demands to match her icon status.
The 31-year-old singer is said to have a list of specific requirements for every venue on her Mrs Carter world tour and her mandate includes alkaline water, new toilet seats and bizarrely red toilet paper, according to reports.
Beyoncé has also requested that all her crew members wear 100 percent cotton, her water is chilled to 21 degrees and served through $900 titanium straws and she has access to hand carved ice balls after every show to cool her throat, The Daily Star claims.
A spokesperson for the singer refused to comment on the claims.
The details of Beyoncé’s rider comes after it was claimed the singer demanded the largest changing rooms at the O2 arena, space which is usually reserved for sports teams.
Despite being the first performer to be offered the use of the O2′s newly refurbished rooms, the 31-year-old opted for the larger set which are in a quieter part of the arena.
‘The new dressing rooms are superb — it’s like you’ve stepped into a luxury apartment. But she surprised everyone by turning them down, going for the larger ones that are used by sports teams when they play at the 02,’ revealed the source.
‘They are much bigger though, and she was given free rein to refurbish them to her own taste. They’re also in a quieter part of the backstage area, which gives her a better atmosphere to get focused for her shows.’
Even though she’s only there for a few nights, the artist has reportedly brought in her own curtains, sofas and rugs to make herself feel at home.
And instead of staying in London during her six nights of shows, the Crazy In Love singer is holed up in Berkshire at a country hotel, along with husband Jay-Z and daughter Blue Ivy.
She opted not to copy Rihanna and catch the Tube to the arena for her sell-out show, proving that she’s still a diva by hitching a ride on her own private helicopter.
It’s not unusual for stars to have unusual demands when on tour. Lady Gaga reportedly asked for a a mannequin with puffy pink public hair, Madonna is said to have requested her own furniture installed in every changing room in the past.
Egy előre felvett interjút adtak ma le a Good Morning America nevű műsorban, ahol Beyoncé leginkább csak az Epicről beszélt, új zenéről sajnos nem.
