When an artist goes on tour, they usually have a list of requirements that each venue organizer must fulfill. It’s called a rider.
The demands can get pretty crazy. For example, only green M&Ms are allowed or the room must be completely white.
Maybe it’s just me, but it seems like the most down-to-earth people have some of the craziest requests!
This time, it’s [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Katy Perry[/lastfm] on the hot seat!
Celeb secret-busting site The Smoking Gun has claimed to obtained Katy’s 45-page concert rider for her 2011 world tour.
Like many divas before her, the dressing room must be draped in cream or soft pink with two Arne Jacobsen chairs and “perspex modern style” coffee table. Whatever that means…
And whatever you do, don’t screw up the flower arrangement!
White and purple hydrangeas, pink & white roses and peonies…ABSOLUTELY NO CARNATIONS.
If you’re lucky enough to be driving Miss Perry around town, check out the strict rules for her chauffeurs.
They’re not allowed to talk to the pop star, her friends or fans. Furthermore, they should not stare at the backseat through the rear view mirror! And forget about getting an autograph.
However, it’s not all bad news. Katy is going green by requesting eco-friendly SIGG drinking bottles for herself and her staff.
