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]
