While Beyonce's camp denies them, rumors have been flying about Beyonce's rider for her Mrs. Carter Tour. A source apparently told the Daily Star about an alleged list of demands (via HuffPo) from Queen Bey, including:
- All crew members have to wear 100% cotton.
- 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.
It's entirely possible that these demands could be made-up; the rumor mill also said that she demanded a $1 million nursery for her daughter Blue Ivy and $6,000 worth of imported cigars and alcohol for Jay-Z at the Super Bowl, but those claims turned out to be false.
Beyonce did, however, ban press photographers from the tour to keep unflattering photos at bay, and E! did confirm that, as the source alleged, she's using a huge dressing room meant to accomodate a whole sports team in addition to the newly-refurbished one intended for a solo star.
