As if Madonna's original demands weren't ridiculous enough, she now insists on having a "sterilization team" keep fans from getting their hands on her DNA.
The Diva's tour rider already required that each venue accommodate her 200 person entourage (which includes 30 bodyguards, an acupuncturist and several personal chefs), a dressing room decorated with lilies and white and pink roses with their stems cut exactly six inches and her hotel room furniture be replaced with items shipped in from her home.
Now the singer wants the dressing room and backstage area to be wiped clean to prevent genetic theft. Yes, genetic theft?!?!
Concert promoter Alvaro Ramos, who is handling her tour dates in Portugal, told the Winnipeg Free Press:
"We have to take extreme care, like I have never seen for any other artist. We cannot even look at the dressing room, after it is ready, or even open the door. We can only enter after her sterilisation team has left the room. There will not be any of Madonna's DNA, any hair, or anything. They will clean up everything."
Sounds crazy right? But these over-the-top requests are common among the A-list. Check out 10 more outrageous star demands below.
Do stars expect too much or do they deserve to get whatever they want?
