With Lantern Club rolling out the red carpet for four weeks, we’ve found the biggest divas in the world and found what their demands are for VIP treatment.
We’re going all VIP from July 24 so we thought we’d look at what the world’s most famous VIPs do to make themselves feel special when on tour. You’ll be amazed at the demands these pop sensations make.
The former Destiny’s Child and now solo pop sensation is a self confessed diva. In fact, she even named a song about it in which the phrase “I’m a diva” is repeated many, many times. So being a lady of her word, Queen B has many demands for her destinations when touring. Firstly the room must be set at 78 degrees (25.5C) and loves to chow down fried chicken which must be heavily seasoned with cayenne pepper. The room must have the aroma of rose-scented candles. As for beverages, don’t have any Coca-Cola products anywhere near her. Beyoncé can only be seen with Pepsi as per her sponsorship.
Other luxuries includes “Hand-Carved Ice Balls”, freshly painted white walls and a new toilet seat. Also, no normal toilet paper is good for Beyonce’s tush, it’s red toilet paper please. All her staff must also be dressed in 100% pure cotton.
To drink her special alkaline water, she requires titanium drinking straws. The straws are close to a $1000 a pop. Please don’t make the water too cold, 21 degrees C is perfect.
If you thought Adele was going to have demands like your average run of the mil English woman in her late 20s, you’d be correct. Being a typical Brit, a cup of tea can’t be far away with teaspoons, a kettle, teabags and brand new mugs must be sourced. She also loves honey (not that organic garbage though!) as well as packets of chewing gum, a selection of fruit but no citrus fruit please.
Adele also routinely eats chicken salad sandwiches but don’t you dare put any tomato, vinegar chilli or citrus fruit in it! After her sandwich, she will go through a packet of Marboro Lights cigarettes a night. Afterwards she’ll drink red wine, but it has to be the best quality one from the local region she happens to be in at the time.
Kanye is married to one of the biggest VIP regulars in the world in Kim Kardashian and he’s quite the high roller himself. The singer requests a barber’s chair, Carmex lip balm, shower shoes and a plethora of alcohol (Hennessy, Absolut Vodka, Heineken Beer and Patron Silver Tequila) to ensure he’s feeling fresh and cheery.
It’s not all alcohol from Kanye and his crew though, he loves plain yoghurt for dipping, an assortment of nuts and Yoplait flavoured toghurts.
Justin Bieber is arguably the biggest pop star of the decade and although he’s now in his mid 20s, he still has demands like a junior high school student.
Firstly Biebs is addicted to Swedish Fish, a candy that is shaped like, you guessed it, fish. All rooms for him must maintain a constant temperature of 68 to 75 degrees (20-24C).
Although it’s safe to assume he now packs the room with alcoholic beverages, he always demands cases of Coke, Diet Coke, ginger ale. To further prove he’s a cool guy, he needs a Vicks steam inhaler as well. He’s a bit of a germophobe though with all food items needing clear plastic wrapping and a private bathroom.
The ever extravagant Rihanna has a few odd requests for her touring venues. Firstly she demands ‘relaxed lighting’ with dark blue or black drapes. She needs six also needs Archipelago Black Forest candles, a clean animal-print throw rug (for her to walk on barefoot). Four clear, square vases with fresh tulips must be in the room. A minimum five AC power outlets must be available.
She is someone always full of colour and Katy Perry loves her environment to match. Even her drinks are colourful with an assortment of Vitamin Waters. She’s also a freak for the fruit with freeze-dried strawberries, organic apples, bananas, oranges and grapes as well as cucumber, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, peas and celery on her list.
It’s not all health foods though with Snyder’s of Hanover Honey Mustard & Onion Pretzels a must as well as salsa and Blue corn tortilla chips.
To drink she’ll have Santa Margarita Pinot Grigio, Fuze Slenderize or Twinnings tea. She also likes to keep clean with Huggies nature care wipes.
As for the room, she too loves an arrangement of fresh flowers. White and purple hydrangeas, pink & white roses and peonies. Seasonal white including white orchids are okay. But for some reason she hates carnations.
Tay-tay couldn’t be more middle-America white girl if she tried with her addiction to Starbucks drinks as well as pumpkin loaf and a stick of butter. If she’s still hungry, there’s the fancy food known as Kraft macaroni and cheese.
She also loves Red Bull, Corona and Newcastle beers, avocado, Bottle Welch’s grape juice, Smartwater and for dessert Ben & Jerry’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream and Chocolate Brownie Frozen Yogurt.
The close to 50-year-old (she doesn’t reveal her real age) also is a lover of flowers and candles with eight ‘tall, leafy plants,’ Joe Malone vanilla candles and two vases of white roses and drapes around every perimeter her demands. The room must also be 75 degrees exactly (24C)
In the room there must be a three-seat couch which must be pain colour, no busy patterns; black, dark grey, cream, dark pink are fine for her. She’s not that fusy!
Her drink selection is quite varied with Fiji water, Coke, Diet coke, vanilla protein drinks, three Bottles of Chardonnay (chilled), Pellegrino water, Melon flavour Gatorade and bottles of water on the list.
Just like Beyonce, she loves fried chicken to eat as well as lemon, honey and sugarless gum.
