We’ve heard of some pretty quirky celebrity demands over the years. There’s Jennifer Lopez, who allegedly demands a dressing room replete with “All White Everything” before she can be expected to perform. Then there’s Britney Spears, who demands a medley of breakfast foods be delivered to her dressing rooms before performances. And if you want Christina Aguilera to take the stage, you’d better come baring real coffee mugs, soy milk, soy cheese, Echinacea, Vitamin C, and Flintstones chewable vitamins.
Now the concert rider for pop queen of the hour Lady Gaga has been revealed, and surprisingly, the star’s requests aren’t nearly as outlandish as some of her outfits.
“Despite her out-there image, this rider proves that Lady Gaga is actually quite down-to-earth and normal compared to the diva-like demands of some pop stars,” a music industry source told London’s Daily Mail this week.
Before performances, Gaga asks for a cup of tea and some decaf coffee. She also likes to have low-fat milk, salsa and guacamole dips, and wholewheat bread and crackers on hand. The “Poker Face” star requests a plate of cheese, a jar of honey, and a whole roast chicken be on hand for entourage.
In addition, the singer’s drinks list is absolutely alcohol free and only includes “Dr Pepper, Giinger ale, 12 bottles of distilled water, and a dozen bottles of mineral water.”
