Beyoncé’s bizarre backstage demands on her global tour have reportedly been exposed
Beyoncé is the sort of girl who knows what she wants, and we applaud her for it and when it comes to her rider requests while on her Mrs Carter Show global tour things are no different. Although her demands include the health-conscious to the somewhat hilarious…
According to The Daily Star Beyoncé’s backstage necessities include a new toilet seat and red toilet paper too. But that’s not all, when it comes to having a drink ahead of her shows the most famous pout in pop needs a £600 drinking straw and hand-carved ice balls for any liquid refreshment that also has to be alkaline water served at exactly 21 degrees.
The newspaper claims that the mother-of-one has a penchant for white walls in her dressing room, freshly painted of course, while her crew are under strict instructions to wear 100 per cent pure cotton clothing at all times.
This move is to prevent the signer from suffering with any allergic reactions, and with a grueling schedule that includes endless flying, it’s easy to understand her concern. With this in mind it also makes sense that Beyoncé will want to enjoy a healthy diet too. Snacks on her rider must include glass platters of almonds and oatcakes while all salad bar snacks follow a green-only policy.
During her six-night-stint at the O2 in London Beyoncé has shunned the new luxury dressing rooms in favour of the venue’s largest quarters usually reserved for sports teams. An insider told the Evening Standard: ‘They are much bigger, she was given free rein to refurbish them to her own taste. They’re also in a quieter part of the backstage area, which gives her a better atmosphere to get focused for her shows.’
And focused is something the singer certainly is!
