When it comes to extravagant lifestyles, celebrities are known to push the boundaries of excesses. From luxurious mansions to private jets, they’re no strangers to demanding the best of the best. But sometimes, their outrageous demands extend beyond the usual realms of luxury, into the realm of complete craziness.
One of the most famous instances of a celebrity having an outlandish rider demand is legendary singer Mariah Carey. Known for her diva-like behavior, Carey’s rider demands have become the stuff of legends. Back in 2010, reports surfaced of her requesting 20 white kittens and 100 white doves for a performance. The kittens were meant to accompany her backstage, while the doves were planned to be released during the show. It’s safe to say that not many venues would be willing or able to fulfill such demands.
Another singer notorious for her outrageous rider demands is Lady Gaga. During her Monster Ball tour, she requested a “mannequin with puffy pink public hair” as part of her backstage preparations. The strange request left many scratching their heads, wondering about the thought process behind such a bizarre demand.
Not to be outdone, Beyoncé has also had her share of extravagant rider requests. For her Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, it was reported that she demanded her dressing room be kept at a constant temperature of exactly 78 degrees. Additionally, her water had to be chilled to precisely 21 degrees before she would even touch it. The attention to detail and perfectionism in her demands is truly remarkable.
British singer Robbie Williams is known for his love of tea, but his rider demands take it to a whole new level. During his concerts, Williams insisted on having a team of six people dedicated solely to making tea. They had to be available at all times, ensuring that he had a fresh cup of tea whenever he desired. And if that wasn’t enough, he also requested that his tea be served in fine bone china cups, adding an extra touch of luxury to his tea-drinking experience.
Last but certainly not least, we have the fashionista herself, Victoria Beckham. While one might assume that her rider demands would revolve around designer clothing or expensive skincare products, Beckham has a surprising request. She allegedly traveled with a life-size cardboard cutout of herself, which she would place in front of her hotel room window to deter paparazzi. This unusual tactic allows her to enjoy some privacy while staying in the public eye.
These are just a few examples of the craziest celebrity rider demands – according to multiple sources – but the list goes on and on. From outrageous animals to absurd temperature preferences and bizarre objects, it seems like the sky’s the limit when it comes to celebrities and their requests. It’s a fascinating glimpse into the over-the-top lifestyle these stars live, reminding us that sometimes, their reality is just as outrageous as we imagine it to be.
