Celebs being divas…there’s nothing we love more.
The rider (a set of demands artists request when they’re performing) demands of singer/producer/tall-hat-wearer extraordinaire Pharrell Williams has been leaked.
Apparently Williams is a bit of a #ScienceGeek. He’s only ‘happy’ with a framed photograph of astrophysicist Carl Sagan by his side.
“When I look at that picture I realise how lucky we all are … to be on this planet and be able to do what we love to do every day,” Williams said, according to News.com.au. “Seeing Carl’s face reminds me of it.”
He also like biscuits. And Booze. Lots and lots of booze. Williams must have a litre of Silver Patron Tequila and the same of Ketel One Vodka.
So, it’s fair to say Williams’ request are a little out of the ordinary. Here are ten other celebs who, *ahem*, can’t say the same.
1. Jack White
Earlier this year, musician Jack White’s Oklahoma tour rider was leaked, and it revealed two things: 1) Jack White gets paid a f*ckload, and 2) the man loves his guacamole.
The leaked document contained detailed of White’s paycheck and one very elaborate guac recipe that he MUST have made for him. Turns out, having the White Stripes front man play at your birthday party would set you back a cool $80,000 — but he could definitely help out with dips.
White is insisting the guac stipulation was included by his manager as an inside joke.
“I can’t even make kool aid let alone cook any real food enough to have a ‘recipe’,” the White Stripes front man said in an online rant.
“First off, this is none of your business, but I have no specific demands in my dressing room. I know I could ask for lots of things but I actually don’t ask for ANYTHING. Can I go back to making music now? No? Ok. Crochet it is.”
There were some bizarre demands on Beyonce’s leaked tour rider. Forget the $1000 titanium drinking straws (but actually, what?), Queen Bey can only tolerate red toilet paper. You heard me, red. “Bathrooms must have new toilet seats and red toilet paper at every venue.”
