She's one demanding pop star.... Who knew that california girls were so high maintenance?

The best part is that one of the demands is for a good number of the best seats for each show are to be given to her people to resell on the highly inflated market, like stubhub. That's some bullshit.

Thoughts?

EDIT: What would your list look like?

I wonder how standard this is among other people at her fame level.

You think something like this would have fewer typos.

I am a total Katy fanboy. She can act how she wants, just keep on bangin' out the hooks and nudez.

I don't see any problems? And most of these are for security reasons, like the Rolling Stones would have no green m&ms because they knew that if that was upheld, the venue had read and acted upon every item, whereas if there were green m&ms, they would know that the venue hadn't read and acted upon everything.

This isn't unusual in the slightest. She probably only picked out the food and whatnot while her manager and/or attorney wrote most of it.

I wonder what Charlie Sheen's rider looks like. I bet it's something like:

Seventeen (17) kilograms pure cocaine
Fourteen (14) grams marijuana, purple haze preferred
One (1) live tiger, caged
Twelve (12) assorted bottles of liquor, totaling 12 liters. Assortment must consist of at least one (1) liter of Grey Goose vodka, three (3) bottles of Dom Perignon, one (1) bottle pure agave tequila (Reposado), and at least two (2) bottles of Jack Daniels. Other bottles left up to discretion.
Three (3) virgins no more than twenty-two (22) years of age and no less than fourteen (14) years of age
Twelve (12) lbs. of Corn Nuts
And porn. Lots of porn.

I actually would think it would be the other way around, knowing Axl...



Not to fear amongst Axl's needs are 1 Ribeye Steak and 1 Dom Perrigon Bottle amongst the other 4.... porn and wonder bread. haha

Honestly, my rider would be pretty sick. I'd want a fully stocked kitchen to just **** around with, a few movies, some good weed, a really comfortable leather couch, assorted chairs and couches (decor doesn't matter as long as they're comfortable) and that's pretty much it.

Why would he need porn, when he's got Bree Olsen....
Mmmmmm

I guess the novelty of being Charlie Sheen's goddess wears off in proportion to his sanity.


I think the way you meant to phrase that was: there is an inverse correlation between Charlie Sheen's sanity and Bree Olson's desire to leave him.

EDIT: and I would think it would be the opposite. Why would a porn star date a regular, boring guy?
#19
Quote by Norse Thrasher
Haha damn, sucks for Charlie.
I found it pretty amusing that the "attention was too much for her", yet she doesn't mind millions of men jacking off to her.




Yeah, you can tell Bree Olson was really treasured for her mental prowess.

This isnt strange at all. Most riders require insane amounts of things. Part of it is for security, part for legal reasons, and part just to have fun and take advantage of your fame. When I'm loaded and people are paying mad bucks to see my band, I'm having a crazy long rider. First note will be-

I must have a personal chef on site, calssically trained in both japanese and french cooking. He MUST be british, with an accent, and he MUST be named Hidalgo from birth.

Semantics, TA, semantics . however, I'm off to MS paint to make a graph.

Why would a porn star want to date an insane junkie? You just can't go right dating a guy like the Sheenster.

I don't see what's so unusual about your rider.... Why would anybody be a chef without being named Hidalgo from birth

You would accept Viggo Mortensen making you a peanut butter and banana sandwich while in the exact same shit he wore in the movie Hidalgo, while on the same horse he rode in that movie.

She gets plowed in all three holes for money. Whatever you think that indicates, the point is that she thinks about things differently from most people.

Eh, true. I applied for a porn job, but was rejected because my O face looked a little like

My band's list would be decidedly small and minimalistic. Something like

Two (2) Medium pizzas, both with pepperoni and canadian bacon, from Pizza Hut
One (1) two (2) liter bottle of Pepsi
Zero (0) wire hangers, ever.

Quote by TheChaz
It's really not that unusual.

Which is why I think it's worse. Artists and their companies compain they aren't making enough money, and they ask for ridiculous shit like this?

She needs flowers but ABSOLUTELY NO CARNATIONS? What? Room needs to be draped in cream or soft pink? Food must be organically grown? Bullshit.

There's nothing wrong with having a rider if the list is reasonable. A couch, food and drink (non-ridiculous) that the artist likes, even an internet connection in this day and age probably isn't going to far. But to specify the colour of the room and furniture, the kind of flowers, the style of lamps, etc. is crazy.

As for mine: I couldn't give a shit what the room looks like. As long as the room has comfortable seating, airconditioning/heating, a couple of power outlets and an internet connection, I'd be thrilled. Food would probably be pretty standard too. I don't see the point in taking advantage.

DON'T MAKE ME DESTROY YOU!

You guys need to take this into context, she's no longer an ordinary person from California, she's used to this new lifestyle.

I'm fairly certain most of you would be like this as well, once you got used to fame she's currently having.

Even though I certainly would not do anything like this, if I was touring around the world with a famous band for a long time, I dread to think what sort of stupid crap I order to be with me...
Isn't it a pity?
Now, isn't it a shame?

And cause each other pain...

As previously stated, most of the stupid things on these lists are security. If they make sure the flowers are right, then they've read the list properly, and everything, including more important things, will be good.

Mine would include:

- 1 stereo that loops "The Final Countdown" starting aprox. 3 hours before showtime.
- 1 juggling stripper. Preferably brunette.
- 1 Olsen twin, but not both. If neither is available, 1.2 pounds of beef jerky will suffice.
- A 6 foot table with an accurate diorama of the Battle of Gettysburg made entirely of Lego.
- Any and all venue personelle who may will make any contact with the band must wear Stormtrooper outfits and refer to me as Lord Vader.

Or, they've spent so much time making sure the flowers match the couch that they forgot to background check the driver and he kills her and rapes her corpse in the earhole.

That's hardly justification for extreme and cruel demands.... It's not easy to complete your job when you have to worry about a prima donna bitching all over the place because there was one less red m&m than she demanded.

Also, I highly doubt the people organising the food and the rooms are the same people organising security and drivers and the like. Just because some little detail about the room is correct doesn't mean everything else will be fine.

That's not the point. The point is to ensure that if they went as far as to include "x" item that is ****ing stupid they have ensured the big stuff was done correctly.

I hate to make it seem like they are unprivileged in ANY sense. But when your JOB is to be on the road for months on end. Yes, they get to do what the love. But they have no home. There is no comfort in that. So to ask for these things a "home away from home" I don't see the issue at all.

I'd include miniscule things in my rider just to make me feel comfortable. I'd want to have at least one leather recliner in my dressing room.

EDIT : don't know if you guys read Dick Cheney's but he requests to have all TV's preset to FOX News. Also, AC/DC needs 3 oxygen tangs and masks hahah!
