What’s on your Rider?

We all know some celebrities can be demanding. Next month San Diego has a fair…here are some requests (no alcohol is provided but they can BYOB).


Fergie – Gallon of OJ, pint of cottage cheese, box of Lucky Charms for her crew, 4 cans of Red Bull, Airborne vitamins & a box of throat coat tea. (seems reasonable, tells me she’s low maintenance)

Earth, Wind & Fire – 5 pounds of fresh ginger root, jar of peanut butter, 2 bottles of wine, , 36 black or dark colored hand towels, 9 dozen bath towels and a dozen bars of soap.(clean freaks??)

Grand Funk Railroad – 8 sober stage hands. (have learned from experience)

Sinbad – hot tea with lemon and honey. (can’t get much simpler then that)

Steel Pulse (reggae band from England) – Insists that none of its food , drink or dressing room furnishings be bought at Wal Mart, Sams Club or other “Republican Party shills.” We will gladly accept receipts for items bought at places that treat employees like human beings,” the band stipulates. (socially conscious people who want to make a statement)

Mariah Carey (2006)- Her dressing room had to be entirely WHITE with no cement walls showing.

 (this is why I loathe Mariah…what an ass).


The list goes on but in conclusion, you can tell a lot about a person from their “riders” (that’s show biz talk for their list of needs”). It made me think what I would have on my rider…water & advil!

  1. I really loathe Mariah Carey. I can’t wait til one day when she simply goes away. After her lingerie closet tour on Oprah, I lost it!

  2. […] Daily Dalia put an intriguing blog post on What’s on your Rider?Here’s a quick excerpt […]

  3. All VIP’s want something special, I wonder want Madonna wants?

    “She has asked for 12 dozen boxes of strawberries, eight full-length mirrors, a skipping rope, Yorkshire Tea, organic green tea, and vanilla room spray.”

    “Madonna insisted her £1,000-a-night suite was kept at a constant 30 degree temperature and demanded that it was filled with fresh flowers and scented candles. Most bizarrely, she requested a hook to be attached to the ceiling. Two treadmills have also been installed in the suite so the singer and her husband, director Guy Ritchie, can work out together.”

    What is your take on that? 🙂
