Beyonce apparently hasn’t developed a diva reputation for nothing as a list of her alleged tour rider has been leaked showing the elaborate and intricate requests she has demanded backstage on her current ‘Mrs. Carter Show’ world tour.
The ‘Singles Ladies’ singer, who is in the midst of her six-night stint at London’s O2 Arena, has reportedly demanded that a series of her requests be adhered to ensure she and her entourage are comfortable when travelling around the world on the mammoth jaunt.
According to the Daily Star, the 31-year-old has asked that her crew are given 100% pure cotton clothes to prevent her getting an allergic reaction, while she has also requested special alkaline water that is served at exactly 21 degrees.
Similar to the rumoured requests of Mariah Carey in the past, Beyonce has also allegedly asked that the walls of her dressing room are freshly painted white, that a new toilet seat is installed and has also stated that she will “only use red toilet paper.”
Most likely in a bid to maintain her toned figure, the source claims Queen Bey has banned junk food backstage in exchange for healthy snacks such as almonds and oatcakes. The insider told the publication: “She’s extremely regimented and is taking everything extremely seriously, so she expects her list of demands to be adhered to.
“Working so hard and with the toll the travel takes on her body in addition to the intense shows, she feels that her requests aren’t too much to ask for as she wants to ensure everything goes to plan.”
Meanwhile, it was reported earlier this week that Beyonce snubbed the brand new dressing rooms at the venue as she wanted to occupy the much larger quarters that are usually used by sports teams.
“The new dressing rooms are superb — it’s like you’ve stepped into a luxury apartment. But she surprised everyone by turning them down, going for the larger ones that are used by sports teams when they play at the O2,” an insider told the Evening Standard.
“They are much bigger though, and she was given free rein to refurbish them to her own taste. They’re also in a quieter part of the backstage area, which gives her a better atmosphere to get focused for her shows.”
Beyonce, who will be playing at the O2 until Saturday, is said to be staying in a Berkshire hotel with her husband Jay-Z and daughter Blue Ivy, and has been flying to the venue via helicopter.
