Beyonce’s Crazy Tour Demands Reveal What a Diva She Really Is

OMG 16

beyonceRidiculous demands from stars is nothing new. Prince wants clear plastic covering everything in his dressing room. Marilyn Manson supposedly demanded a bald, toothless hooker. Cher insisted on a separate room for her wigs. Madonna gets brand new toilet seats wherever she performs. So I am not sure why I was surprised by the reports of Beyonce's recent backstage demands, but I was. You won't believe what Queen Bey allegedly asked for.

The singer is currently performing several shows in London and, according to the Daily Star, she has made an eyebrow-raising list of must-haves.

  1. The walls of her dressing room must be freshly painted white.
  2. A new toilet seat must be installed.
  3. They must provide red toilet paper, because apparently that is the only kind she uses.
  4. All junk food is banned.
  5. Titanium drinking straws.
  6. There should be healthy snacks like almonds and oatcakes.

Most of these I get. She works hard and needs certain things to maintain her healthy lifestyle, so I understand several of these requests. But red toilet paper? Where in the world does one get that? Is it a regular roll just dipped in dye? Do stores actually sell that? And why does anyone need a titanium drinking straw? Oh well, I suppose that is the problem of some poor lackey at the concert venue. I guess this shouldn't seem so strange. After all, she and hubby Jay-Z took over an entire maternity ward when she gave birth to Blue Ivy. This is small by comparison. Still, it's amazing what stars can get away with, isn't it? Guess they don't call her a diva for nothing!

What do you think of Beyonce's demands?

Ozzy has to have a bowl of only green MandMs I dont think most of the things she asks for isnt unreasonable. Other then the red TP only because it would give me hives

Red toilet paper really grosses me out for some reason,

I'm with Prima, there's usually one outrageous item just for the venue to be "on their collective toes"...but besides that, she's freakin Beyonce...bring on the oatcakes, titanium, and white walls...God, I love her...

The maternity ward takeover has been revealed as officials have denied that ever happened. Repainting and red tp seem kind of silly but the rest isn't that crazy. I've seen the metal straws before, they're actually pretty cool. I agree with previous posters that the crazy stuff is probably on there to make sure people are actually reading it.

You made it seem like her requests would be astronomical. The only weird one is the toilet paper. The titanium straws are to save plastic, they're more eco-friendly.

Freshly painted? Yuck. The smell of paint would make me throw up!! Better make sure it's done in plenty of time to dry!!

I worked at a theater in college and there were some crazy demands in riders. Carrot Top demanded that the furniture be covered in cheetah print throws, Aretha Franklin demanded the A/C be turned off in the entire building at least 3 hours before she was set to do sound check.... in a 3500 person auditorium.... in June
