Beyonce’s Tour Rider Includes a New Toilet Set, Red Toilet Paper, Alkaline Water + More
You can't be classified as a diva if you don't have any diva demands. Beyonce's diva status is certainly in NO danger now that her tour rider requests have been released on the web.
According to The Daily Star, Queen B (we don't mean that facetiously this time) is demanding things like titanium straws that cost almost $1,000, so she can sip on alkaline water served at exactly 69 degrees over hand carved ice balls. But wait, there's more!
An insider claims that Bey insists her backstage crew only wear cotton. We can picture the made-for-TV movie that comes out in 15 years with a Beyonce look-alike screaming at an unassuming stage hand: "Polyester?! Are you wearing polyester?!" We just gave you that one for free, Lifetime.
Moving onto her finicky demands for her bathroom, Beyonce insists the toilet seat cover must be new. Who knows what bums have sat on "the throne" before Her Highness? Oh also, she needs red toilet paper. Apparently, white is the preferred toilet paper color for common folk. Plus, the dressing room needs a fresh coat of paint before Bey rolls into town.
A source said, "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."
We would imagine that going on a worldwide tour is extremely taxing on a body. Aside from the hectic traveling schedule, the performances alone are enough to wipe out anyone who isn't in impeccable physical shape. Yes, these demands are totally outrageous (we're still trying to wrap our heads around red toilet paper. WHY?!), but if it makes Beyonce go out and give a killer performance, who are we to criticize? She's just trying to impress us!
