    Katy Perry has a 45-page rider that requests two cream-colored egg chairs, one with a coordinating ottoman, as well as a refrigerator with a glass door, ornate French lamps and someone to wash and cut her fruit and vegetables … and no one on staff is permitted to speak to her.

    Paul McCartney bans any and all animal products from his dressing room and tour transportation (including leather seats in limos). Macca even refuses faux fur or fake animal prints in his presence.

    Mary J. Blige demands a brand new toilet seat for every room she uses in every city in which she performs.

    Ariana Grande famously demands to only be shot from her left side.

    For a brief cameo in a charity video, Jennifer Lopez requested white flowers (preferably roses or lilies), white chaise lounges, white chair covers, white candles, white drapes, white sheets and Cuban food.

    Justin Bieber requests only simple items: herbal teas to keep his pipes in order, as well as Ritz Bits (both peanut butter and cheese), Swedish fish and assorted sizes of plain white T-shirts and low-rise socks. Oh, and also that no one speak to him directly.

    Lady Gaga’s rider is weird because, well, it’s Lady Gaga: In addition to a glam rock theme for her dressing room, Mother Monster requests all lavender bath products (both in scent and color), as well as a mannequin with pink pubic hair.

    Moby requests 10 pairs each of white cotton socks and white boxer shorts, allowing promoters to assure he never has to buy his own underwear.

    At his stand-up comedy shows, former “Saved by the Bell” star Dustin Diamond demands that no one in his presence call him “Screech.”

    The Smoking Gun nabbed a copy of Kanye West’s rider, and the man is serious about skincare: He requests two tubes of Carmex lip balm, one bar of L’Occitane soap, a bottle of Neutrogena dandruff shampoo, Neutrogena face scrub and Nivea Intensive Moisturizing Lotion. Additionally, if any driver under West’s employ wears any man-made fibers, Yeezus walks.

    Mariah Carey’s riders request Cristal and bendy straws from which to sip it, as well as two air purifiers, an assistant to dispose of her gum, another assistant to help her on staircases and couches in dark colors with “no busy patterns.” Carey also requests her room be at about 75 degrees Fahrenheit, and filled with two dozen white roses and vanilla aromatherapy candles.

    Cher reportedly requests an entire room just for her wigs. That sounds extravagant, but when they’re all this size, it’s pretty practical.

    If InTouch is to be believed, Madonna requests a 200-person entourage that includes personal chefs, yoga instructors, 30 bodyguards and an on-site dry cleaner for her costumes, as well as vegan food (even though Madge isn’t vegan), 20 international phone lines and lilies and light pink or white roses cut to precisely 6 inches.

    Prince demands a doctor be present to inject him with B-12 shots, as well as Yogi cocoa tea, jasmine and lavender scented candles, tables throughout the venue to collect gifts and flowers from fans, and that all food in his dressing room be wrapped in plastic wrap, to be unwrapped by the Purple One and the Purple One alone.

    Adele could demand the world if she wanted to, but instead she asks for Marlboro Lights, candy bars, European lager beer and sandwiches without tomatoes. Additionally, the songstress requires that anyone receiving free tickets to her shows donate a minimum of $20 to Sands, a UK-based charity — and there are no exceptions to that rule.

    John Mayer’s rider is simple enough and focuses more on his pearly whites than anything: He asks for kids’ cereals, like Count Chocula or Cap’n Crunch, as well as four soft-head toothbrushes, a bottle of Listerine, two small tubes of mint-flavored toothpaste (preferably Tom’s of Maine) and two packages of Altoids. Must be to counteract all that sugary cereal.

    Rihanna must have the munchies on tour: Her requests include Oreos, Haribo gummies, Babybel cheese and Red Bull. She also requests plush, non-leather couches big enough for her to stretch out on, as well as animal print pillows with no sequins and freshly cleaned carpeting so she can walk around barefoot.

    Some cool rock & rollers that get it:
    Iggy Pop and the Stooges are famous for their hilarious 28-page rider, which includes gems like a Bob Hope impersonator and “seven dwarves, dressed up as those dwarves out of that marvelous Walt Disney film about the woman who goes to sleep for a hundred years after biting a poisoned dwarf, or maybe pricking her finger on a rather sharp apple … or something. Taller people are acceptable, of course. It’s attitude, more than altitude, that’s important here. Don’t forget the pointy hats!”

    The Foo Fighters have simple, amusing requests in their tour rider, including vegetable soups, “because meaty soups make the roadies fart.”

    Marilyn Manson requests Haribo gummi bears and a “bald, toothless hooker” in his rider, which the entire world is hoping is a joke.

    Howard demands that everyone treats Beth as an intelligent important celebrity, regardless of what they've heard or experienced before.

    Not true, if agreed upon the venue/promoter does
    I used to manage a venue where national bands played (GnR, Maiden, Motorhead, Cheap Trick, Mountain, etc.)

    They overpay in most cases.

    It's the other stuff that annoys me - people can't look them in the eye, hallways have to be cleared, you can't ask questions, etc.

    It always amazes me the as rich as some people are, they still need to make a grab for anything they can get.
    Socks, t-shirts, underwear, toothpaste and brushes, candy, toiletries? Seems like they just want to use things once and trash them.
    I would imagine they use these riders to stock the buses also. Greedy bastards.
    More marbles for me!

    What do you think Wiggy's rider for AGT is?
    Bet there's all sorts of sissy things on that list.

    The you can't be spoken to thing is when they have officially lost their minds.

    Ain't nothing wrong with asking for a new toilet seat. And who requests international phone lines after cell phones were invented.

    I'm such a tard...I thought this thread was about celebrities that ride horses and go to huge shows and
    win fucking everything b/c they are rich and famous....

    Happens all the time...can't tell you all the celeb wives I've met at the shows...they suck, can't ride, but have a zillion dollar
    imported show horse that's schooled everyday for hours to be a push button plug anybody could ride...

    wish it was me....

    Didn't Howard have a rider in some contract about Ralph being the only one who was allowed to touch his hair? I think it was in some movie that never got made.
