7 Strangest Rock Star Demands
We all know that rock stars and singing divas come with not only a hefty price tag per performance but also a host of weird demands. While on tour they have numerous unusual and demands which the organizers have to arrange for anyhow. The nightmare of any event organizer is the to-do list of eccentric demands of the performing star without the fulfillment of which he or she refuses to perform. Here is a list of some of the strangest ones!
1. Lady Gaga
Topping the list of anything related to unusual or weird is of course, Lady Gaga. The queen of all things crazy, this lady seems to be in love with the color lavender as she demands that the hotel suite given to her be equipped with lavender shaded bath towels, hand towels, washcloths, hand soap, body wash and face soap, sea-foam loofah sponges, candles and fresh roses.

Beyonce is unarguably among the most talented, beautiful, successful and sought after singers. However, her demands are as crazy as her success is. She apparently asks organizers to load red toilet paper in her suite’s washroom and present to her hand carved ice balls so as to cool her throat after performances. Also, her entourage has been ordered to wear 100 percent cotton clothes only and water need to be served to her at an exact temperature of 21 degrees and served through $900 titanium straws.

Legendary singer Cher has a very queer demand which stump organizers and her managers out of their senses. She is so fond of wigs that she needs a special wig room to store her wigs besides her makeup room. This wig room needs to have a table and three chairs.

Young Rihanna has fast learnt the tricks of the trade and has a barrage of unusual demands of her own. She needs to have a leopard-print room dotted with Archipelago Black Forest candles and a pristine white six foot couch not made of leather to rest on.

5. Mariah Carey
Event and show organizers are known to curse two stars in their heads. One was the rock band Van Halen which mainly started the disturbing trend of endless crazy demands and the other is Mariah Carey who revived it in recent times. She needs her tour bus and room temperature to be 75 degrees and there ought to be a $200 bottle of cabernet sauvignon, two dozen white roses and vanilla aromatherapy candles in her dressing room.
