Aside from Rick Ross, here are 6 celebrities with crazy demands for their shows
Yesterday, Kenyans were left shell-shocked after a list of Rick Ross’ crazy demands hit the media.
Though the demands seem over the top for most of us, it’s not uncommon for artistes and other celebs to have such extravagant demands.
And today we look at some of the celebrities who have crazy demands for their shows.
Most Kenyan celebs do not have extravagant demands and that is why DNG is the only one that made the list.
The number one Hypeman will not get his mouth just near any microphone he is handed. He demands a Shure Beta 58A Cordless Microphone with brand new Energizer batteries, four bottles of lukewarm water from top brands like Dasani and Keringet si zile maji za 20 bob!
It has also been said that the MC demands that the organiser should provide KQ Tickets, no domestic airlines for him.
In addition, for his gigs provide a well-ordered, warm, and private backstage away from the audience and a private portable loo next to the backstage.
2. Mariah Carey
During a Christmas lighting event in London, Mariah Carey reportedly demanded 20 white kittens and 100 white doves and butterfly-shaped confetti which she would be showered with at the end of her performance. The Daily Mail reports that in addition to this, the platinum-selling diva requested for an entourage of 15 along with 80 security guards, a Rolls-Royce, a pink carpet and a pink podium.
According to one of her tour riders, at other gigs, she asked for a few bottles of Cabernet Sauvignon that go for about Sh20, 000, two dozen white roses, vanilla aromatherapy candles and that her room décor must not have any busy patterns.
Only the best for Queen Bee.
For her performances, Beyoncé also has some demands which are a bit over the top but doable.
Queen Bee wants a VIP dressing room that can accommodate 8 people and the room temperature should be maintained at 78 degrees at all times. She must also have a thoroughly cleaned and disinfected bathroom with a minimum of 4 brand new white towels.
Fresh food is a must and it should be prepared and placed in the dressing room not earlier than 15-20 mins before the arrival of Bey and her team. Some of the foods required are juicy baked chicken (legs, wings & breast only), steamed garlic broccoli, lightly seasoned green beans and lightly seasoned steamed spinach. In addition provide 1 Case of Aquafina water, 1 case of diet Pepsi, 1 case of Red Bull, 1 Hot Tea Set up (new teapot only), rose scented candles, lighter for candles, CD player and sliced lemons wedges. The food should be served on proper plates and China and not paper plates.
It seems that many A-Listers have a thing for temperatures as The ‘Fenty’ Beauty Mogul demands that the temperatures in dressing room be precisely at 73°F
As US magazine Star claims, for her Diamond’ s 2013 World Tour, Riri wanted 3 humidifiers in her room, white furniture and towels, drinks like Corona, Vita Coco coconut water, Grey Goose vodka and Jack Daniels, snacks like gummy bears, Cheetos Crunchy Flamin' Hot snacks, garlic-stuffed green olives and food for her private chef to prepare which includes 12 flying-fish fillets.
5. Kanye West
For his ‘Saint Pablo Tour’ which ran from August 25, 2016, to November 19, 2016, Yeezy had some expensive demands as revealed in a leaked rider for his tour.
While some have extravagant demands for comfort, Yeezy seemed to be more concerned with booze as he wanted 13 bottles of big-budget liquor which included three bottles of Hennessy Paradis which costs about Sh100, 500 a bottle. Which is around 300, 000 for 3 bottles and we haven’t considered the other 10!
Other tour requirements included 1 750 ml bottles of SKY or Absolut Vodka, 1 Bottle of Patron Silver Tequila, four 6 Packs of Heineken Beer, Neutrogena face scrub, Carmex lip balm, 1 tub plain yogurt for dipping, 4 small Yoplait yogurt, 1 bowl of Sunkist Salted Pistachio Nuts (No Red Coloring) among other demands.
6. Marylin Manson
The eccentric musician demands Haribo brand gummy bears, Doritos, cereal with 2% milk, two bottles of Absinthe alcohol, Moët and Cristal wine and costly chocolate. But the weirdest of them all and what got him on this list is the demand for a bald-headed, toothless hooker.
