RIHANNA is one seriously demanding diva!


The pop superstar has some very specific demands for her upcoming world tour, which is scheduled to kick off next month in Auburn, Washington.

According to The Smoking Gun:

According to her tour rider, excerpted below, Rihanna (real name: Robin Fenty) is rather particular when it comes to candles, flowers, and seating in her dressing room. A six-foot couch needs to be “White, Cloth, Plush (No leather)” and “wide enough for her to stretch out on and sometime take a nap.” Animal print throw pillows (“Cheetah, Leopard”) cannot have sequins. Since Rihanna’s arena digs are often locker rooms normally occupied by basketball and hockey players, the spaces need to be spruced up with “Icy Blue Chiffon” placed atop drapery and “Archipelago Black Forest Candles.” The bathroom, of course, must be “spotless,” and the toilet has to be deep cleaned before the star’s arrival. Rihanna, 22, also requires a large throw rug (plush, with an animal print) in her dressing room. The rug, her rider notes, “must be CLEAN, as she will walk on it barefoot.” Though perhaps shower slippers or flip-flops are advisable considering the sweaty occupants who normally fill these spaces.

Rihanna has previously revealed she grew up wanting to be a diva.

Janet Jackson, Destiny’s Child, Whitney Houston — they were definitely the people who motivated me to do this, who I idolized and looked up to and said, ‘I want to be like them, I want to do that one day, I want to back videos, make music and have CDs’,” said the star.

“That started the dream and it just went from there, and became a reality.

“Yes I have met some of them and it’s really, really strange. I still look at Mariah Carey and I’m a fan, I remember Vision of Love when I was repeating every night every move in that video.”[imagebrowser id=399]

    how is that demanding? she is asking for a clean toilet i would too..

  • Dia

    im sure that doesnt even make a dent in the budget.. since she didnt specify where the rugs and coach came from. this actually doesn’t seem diva sih

  • Jose

    What a bitch! She is not that good and she is ugly too. of course she needs a big couch to stretch those tree-trunk legs!

    • Nadine

      I’m sure your gorgeous…

    • stud

      Uhm, her legs are the size of my arm. She weights like 95 pounds… how could her legs be like “tree trunks”.

  • Jobs

    That doesn’t sound so bad. Here I was, expecting insanely Draconian requests, but this just shows that she’s a quirky little girl inside. And I think “Jose” might just be an insecure little girl.

    • Nadine

      I agree with you about “Jose”, who is probably really Chris Brown. Rihanna’s requests are completely reasonable and humble. All I would want is a clean dressing room before a performance…I would be worse, I would ask for a NEW RUG.

      Hello, a plush white couch NOT LEATHER (IKEA), a CLEAN BATHROOM RUG, etc…

      One is asked for specifics when it comes their riders…the more specific, the better for the assistants. So it can look bad, but it is asked of celebrities ahead of time, so people aren’t getting fired.

    • David Icke

      what do you mean Draconian requests?

  • Nasty

    I’ve heard of other celebrities, like Jennifer Lopez, being much more demanding to the point of being ridiculous. I don’t like Rihanna, but her requests are not unreasonable; I would expect a clean bathroom as well. Also, have you smelled locker rooms before? They ARE definitely funky and asking for a plush carpet isn’t so bad…If you have ever walked on a shaggy plush carpet with your bare feet, you would know how soothing it is and being in heels–and performing in them, no less–makes the feet hurt that much more. Anything soft on the toes is sublime. Even the other requests are not unreasonable; it’s not like the facilitators would have to fly this stuff in from the other end of the world to satisfy her.

  • I’m Rick James……Bitch.

    We all know how DISGUSTING locker rooms can be. They better clean the hell out of them, literally. That’s not overtly diva-ish. Some divas are known for demanding tons of only green M&Ms. She just wants comfort. On another note though, that hair style has got to Go!

    the person who wrote this article appears to be a hater. When writing an article it isn’t neccessary to make these kinds of smart ass remarks. she is actual asking for something small compare to what a lot of other stars ask for. To the writer, are you mad because you can’t have a white couch or print rugs? just asking.

  • TruthSpeaks

    No that’s not too demanding because Rhianna hasn’t been around longer than Janet, Whitney, Mariah and Destiny’s Child who started to get more demanding as their fame grow around the world within 5 years of performing.

    Still Robin as I know her need to check herself, don’t see a future with Matt her latest boyfriend at all. Marry him and it will end quickly.

    That’s a prediction from me not a gossip!

  • james

    I have seen WAAAAY worse riders than that. With a little planning, everything is reasonably attainable.

  • Nestor

    If she can get it, more power to her.
    I’ve seen more demanding rider.

  • Sebby

    I saw her in concert when she was on tour with Kayne and she was the worst performer I have ever seen live. She just stood there and did nothing to put on a show. It’s just funny that now everybody has come forward and stated how badly she performs. Good music, horrible show. Do us all a favor and keep putting out hits and stop touring!

  • Good grief

    Until her beating Chris Brown with a high heel and his retaliation, she was not that known. She is definitely not a performer, just another wannabee. She and Lindsay Lohan know how to milk the media for attention.

    • Lazlo

      That beating is what she gets for making that stupid ‘umbrella’ song!

  • Lazlo

    This chick is nasty and makes music that is complete crap!!

  • Larry Owens

    Now I know why her show at Crickett Wireless Pavillion in Phoenix was cancelled……The production manager there will not tolerate that much bulls**t from this Diva..pure and simple.

  • Terry

    Jose: you are very catty, or are you a girl or just a drag queen!! Jose, I do admit she is not a good singer but you sound like an angry school girl who is jealouls because she stole your boyfriend!

  • Terry

    Good: Linsey Lohan is talented but she has a substance abuse problem & a psychiatric problems.

  • Terry

    This is not even a news story! I don’t even think this is gossip! This is just a dull story! All the stars do this! Most of them even have more demands!

  • Mark

    These seem pretty reasonable to me.

    I would like to point out many thanks for all of the amazing work, this post about shemales is fantastic

    Couch is furniture that is used for sitting purpose, it is also known as sofa or settee. Two or three peeps can easily sit on a single couch. It has armrest on both sides for providing support. Couches are found in family rooms, lounge, living rooms, and offices and many more. What kind of pillows for couches hide stains the best? I love to eat on my couch but I’m always spilling stuff all over it haha.
