Beyonce’s Tour Rider Has Divalicious Demands Like Red Toilet Paper
Queen Bey is earning her nickname lately. First she banned photographers because she didn’t want unflattering pictures floating around, and now we have her tour rider — which is full of ridiculous “necessities.”
According to the Daily Star (via Entertainmentwise), the rider for her London shows demands a freshly-painted white dressing room and a new toilet seat in the bathroom, and states Beyonce will “only use red toilet paper.” (Where does one find red toilet paper? Doesn’t that stuff leave an unsightly stain? WHAT IS HAPPENING HERE.)
Other orders include only 100% cotton clothing for the crew to prevent possible allergies, and that Bey be served alkaline water kept at exactly 69.8 degrees Fahrenheit.
An insider explained Mrs. Carter’s behavior away, saying, “She’s extremely regimented and is taking everything extremely seriously, so she expects her list of demands to be adhered to.
“Working so hard and with the toll the travel takes on her body in addition to the intense shows, she feels that her requests aren’t too much to ask for as she wants to ensure everything goes to plan.”
This isn’t her first concert rider to go public. Back when Beyonce sang the National Anthem at the 2004 Super Bowl, she required a dressing room kept at 78 degrees, and chicken baked with these instructions: “fresh garlic, season salt, black pepper, and Cayenne pepper HEAVILY SEASONED!!”
