We all know that many celebrities are incredibly fussy and like to exert their power, and this is most evident through their riders and contract demands. Often these are completely outrageous and give you a clear insight into their quirky personalities and neurosis, but sometimes they are also having a bit of fun with the promoters and do not expect all of their demands to be met. Often the riders will focus around food, drink and clothing as they are constantly on the road, but you will also get some baffling requests which are sure to raise a few eyebrows.
10. Madonna – A Brand New Toilet Seat At Every Venue
The queen of pop, we will always know Madonna as an eccentric and interesting character, and unsurprisingly her rider backs this up. It is clear that hygiene is an issue with Madonna, as she demands that the toilet seat in her dressing room is replaced with a brand new one at every venue whilst on tour. You can certainly understand why you would want a clean toilet seat, but surely it would be much easier and cheaper to have the toilet cleaned before she arrived, or even better, to invest in some toilet seat covers. This is the power that the queen of pop commands, however, but she is not the only one as this is also a request of Mary J. Blige. Madonna has also been known to request white and pink roses cut to 6 inches and she has her own furniture shipped in to venues.
