Celebrity tantrums are nothing new… Bollywood & Hollywood stars, who work really hard for their stunning performance, also have some weird demands that they make before signing a movie or during the shoot.
Here’s a list of the celebrity who have made unreasonable demands! Share If You Like.
1 Kayne West
The Smoking Gun nabbed a copy of Kanye West’s rider, and the man is serious about skin care: He requests two tubes of Carmex lip balm, one bar of L’Occitane soap, a bottle of Neutrogena dandruff shampoo, Neutrogena face scrub and Nivea Intensive Moisturizing Lotion. Additionally, if any driver under West’s employ wears any man-made fibers, Yeezus walks.
2 Nicki Minaj
Despite a bit of a diva rep, Nicki Minaj has some pretty simple requests: Spicy fried chicken wings, two space heaters, candles that smell like baked goods, three different flavors of chewing gum and a cheese platter.
3 Mariah Carey
Mariah Carey’s riders request Cristal and bendy straws from which to sip it, as well as two air purifiers, an assistant to dispose of her gum, another assistant to help her on staircases and couches in dark colors with “no busy patterns.” Carey also requests her room be at about 75 degrees Fahrenheit, and filled with two dozen white roses and vanilla aromatherapy candles.
Cher reportedly requests an entire room just for her wigs. That sounds extravagant, but given their size, it’s pretty practical.
If InTouch is to be believed, Madonna requests a 200-person entourage that includes personal chefs, yoga instructors, 30 bodyguards and an on-site dry cleaner for her costumes, as well as vegan food (even though Madge isn’t vegan), 20 international phone lines and lilies and light pink or white roses cut to precisely 6 inches.
6 Jay Z
Jay Z requests that his transportation to and from venues be a black Maybach, but don’t expect him to drive it: He also asks for two bottles of $300 champagne and two $200 bottles of 2004 Sassicaia wine.
7 Iggy Pop
Iggy Pop and the Stooges are famous for their hilarious 28-page rider, which includes gems like a Bob Hope impersonator and “seven dwarfs, dressed up as those dwarfs out of that marvellous Walt Disney film about the woman who goes to sleep for a hundred years after biting a poisoned dwarf, or maybe pricking her finger on a rather sharp apple … or something. Taller people are acceptable, of course. It’s attitude, more than altitude, that’s important here. Don’t forget the pointy hats!”
8 LL Cool J
VH1 reports that LL Cool J asks for two long-stem roses and a bottle of baby oil in his dressing room. Here’s hoping he also asks for a dutiful cleaning staff.
9 Marilyn Manson
Marilyn Manson requests Haribo gummi bears and a “bald, toothless hooker” in his rider, which the entire world is hoping is a joke.
Ne-Yo requests a bottle of Ketel One vodka … for cleaning. You do you, ‘Yo.
Adele could demand the world if she wanted to, but instead, she asks for Marlboro Lights, candy bars, European lager beer and sandwiches without tomatoes. Additionally, the songstress requires that anyone receiving free tickets to her shows donate a minimum of $20 to Sands, a UK-based charity — and there are no exceptions to that rule.
Coldplay doesn’t have any absurd requests, but they do have an adorable one: postcards to send home to their kids from each city.
13 Britney Spears
Britney Spears used to request comfort foods like fried chicken, Cheetos, and Red Bull, but the Femme Fatale has gotten healthier over the years and now bans junk food from her dressing room. One request that remains the same? A framed photo of Princess Diana.
Beyoncé is a diva (hey!): She requests a dressing room that’s the size of those normally used for an entire sports team, as well as heavily seasoned baked chicken.
15 John Mayer
John Mayer’s rider is simple enough and focuses more on his pearly whites than anything: He asks for kids’ cereals, like Count Chocula or Cap’n Crunch, as well as four soft-head toothbrushes, a bottle of Listerine, two small tubes of mint-flavoured toothpaste (preferably Tom’s of Maine) and two packages of Altoids. Must be to counteract all that sugary cereal.
Rihanna must have the munchies on tour: Her requests include Oreos, Haribo gummies, Babybel cheese and Red Bull. She also requests plush, non-leather couches big enough for her to stretch out on, as well as animal print pillows with no sequins and freshly cleaned carpeting so she can walk around barefoot.
17 Katy Perry
Katy Perry has a 45-page rider that requests two cream-colored egg chairs, one with a coordinating ottoman, as well as a refrigerator with a glass door, ornate French lamps and someone to wash and cut her fruit and vegetables … and no-one on staff is permitted to speak to her.
18 Christina Aguilera
Christina Aguilera requests a masseur for her feet on the set of “The Voice.” Her other requests are pretty simple: Flintstone vitamins, Nesquik, dried cranberries, votive candles, soy cheese and an organic food spread prepared without plastic or styrofoam (due to her environmental concerns).
For a brief cameo in a charity video, Jennifer Lopez requested white flowers (preferably roses or lilies), white chaise lounges, white chair covers, white candles, white drapes, white sheets and Cuban food.
20 Ariana Grande
Ariana Grande famously demands to only be shot from her left side.
