Beyoncé’s Alleged Tour Rider Includes $900 Worth Of Straws And Other Bizarre Requests
When both your name and bank account begin with a capital B, it truly means you’re ’bout that life.
And as Beyoncé’s alleged tour rider reveals, cashing out hundreds for strange amenities is perfectly normal.
According to the Daily Telegraph, Bey’s necessity list for her Mrs. Carter world tour boasts $900 worth of drinking straws, colored toilet paper and ice balls.
“The Single Ladies singer forked out $900 for titanium straws, which will be used to drink a special alkaline water that’s served at exactly 21 degrees,” an insider told The FIX.
The source also adds that the 31-year-old money-making machine demands her crew wear 100 percent cotton (to prevent the risk of her getting allergies), off-white walls for her dressing room, red toilet paper, a new toilet seat at every event, hand-carved ice-balls to suck on to cool her throat after every show and in replacement of junk food bowls, platters of almonds, oatcakes and green-only crudités.
This isn’t the first time the “Standing On The Sun” singer’s strange requests have been leaked to the public. She reportedly asked that Blue Ivy’s $22,000 cedar crib be transferred from New York to New Orleans for her Super Bowl performance, and that her personal dressing room be equipped with $6,000 worth of imported cigars and alcohol for hubby/rapper Jay-Z.
“She’s extremely regimented and is taking everything extremely seriously, so she expects her list of demands to be adhered too and every detail be taken in,” the source says.
“Working so hard and with the toll the travel takes on her body in addition to the intense shows, she feels that her requests aren’t too much to ask for as she wants to ensure everything goes to plan.”
Well, it ain’t trickin’ if you got it.
