Beyonce's Diva-Esque Demands On New Tour Include Red Toilet Paper, Titanium Straws

SHE is the Queen of Pop with barmy backstage needs to match her superstar status.

Beyoncé’s diva demands include £600 drinking straws and hand-carved ice balls to suck on.

The 31-year-old, who has sold over 118 million records worldwide is married to top rapper Jay-Z, 43, and is currently on her Mrs Carter Show World Tour.

An insider claims her backstage rider insists that her crew wear only 100% pure cotton clothes, presumably to save her from allergic reactions.

She’s also said to ask for special titanium straws which are used to drink a special alkaline water that’s served at exactly 21 degrees.

She also demands her dressing room has freshly painted white walls and a new toilet seat, and even makes it clear that she will only use red toilet paper.

3. I'm so tired of "celebrities" and their nonsense...

I give her credit for being a Democrat, but other than that...


MEH...

6. I do. Beyonce is a lightweight compared to Madonna or J.Lo.

7. These types of demands were once explained on "This American Life"...

many agents put these types of demands into contracts for 2 reasons 1) to see if the persons or corp the artist is contracted with actually read the contract 2) provides and escape clause for the artist in the case the event is screwed up somehow and allows the artist a way out aka "you didn't provide red toilet paper, we are so out of here! breach of contract!"

But also there are artists that are quite demanding and do ask for bizarre things as well. The line gets blurred after a while.
