Beyonce’s Tour “Diva” Demands: $900 Straws? Red Toilet Paper?
Everyone loves a good diva story, even if legend sometimes outpaces reality.
Beyonce and company have shot down some of the big-money rumors — like the idea that she had a $1 million nursery installed for Blue Ivy and $6,000 worth of imported cigars and alcohol for Jay-Z at the Super Bowl. Right now, Bey is on tour with The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, and some of the “diva” demands from her tour rider have been wandering around the Internet.
• “Alkaline water must be chilled to 21 degrees and served with $900 titanium straws.”
• “Bathrooms must have new toilet seats and red toilet paper at every venue.”
• “Hand-carved ice balls should be made after each show to cool her throat.”
In other diva-ish (or just Amanda Bynes-worthy) news, no photo credentials have reportedly been granted for Beyonce’s tour because she doesn’t want more “unflattering” photos published like the ones from the Super Bowl.
What do you think about this? Are you shaking your head? Do you believe it? If it’s her money and her tour, it’s her business; or do you think it’s a little too Bow Down, when so many people are struggling to make ends meet?
