It was probably a bit naïve to assume that someone nicknamed ‘Queen B’ would have reasonable tour rider demands, but they say innocence is an endearing quality.
On Wednesday, the Daily Star published a list of all the things Beyonce requests every time she performs at a particular venue. Much like Katy Perry and Mariah Carey before her, Mrs. Carter’s rider demands make it clear why she’s referred to as a diva.
Per the Daily Star, Beyonce wants the following at every show: $900 titanium drinking straws, hand-carved ice balls, a crew that wears clothes made of 100 percent cotton, water that’s served at 21 degrees, a new toilet seat and red toilet paper.
There are also specifications made regarding how the dressing room should look and what kinds of food can be served, but that stuff isn’t as interesting.
“She’s extremely regimented and is taking everything extremely seriously, so she expects her list of demands to be adhered to,” a source with knowledge of Beyonce’s demands told the Daily Star.
Yeah, it would appear so.
