Lady Gaga’s Tour Demands Include Extra Long Straws, Tostitos + a Pink-Pubed Mannequin
Seems Lady Gaga has some divalicious demands to go along with her eccentric style of dress. In documents released in conjunction with her six-hour deposition against her former personal assistant, some of Gaga’s stranger requests from her tour rider have now become public.
What follows is either Gaga’s actual rider, a joke from ‘Spinal Tap’ or the ransom demands stolen from the movie ‘Airheads.’ We’re not quite sure.
During the more than two-year Monster Ball Tour, Mother Monster requested her dressing room be decorated in “glam rock” style including white leather couches, black satin drapes, fresh roses and a “manquin [sic] with puffy pink public [sic] hair.”
Oh how we do not envy the intern who had to go on a hunt for a mannequin with pink nether regions.
For alcohol, she requested Jameson, “two bottles of good quality white wine” and “1 bottle of good quality red wine (shiraz, grenache, malbec, cabernet)” for her team.
The documents also show that Gaga was on a health kick at the time, with her personal chef being given 24/7 access to the hotels’ kitchens. Whole wheat bread, Special K cereal, organic tea and milk, strawberry jam, peanut butter with flax seed having no more than four grams of sugar and homemade guacamole were to be kept backstage at all times.
Other requests included 40 bottles of room temperature water, packs of “extra long” straws, eight Coke Zeros, four Gatorades, solid white tuna “in water,” lemon or garlic hummus and “Tostito lime flavor tortilla chips.”
Things weren’t much different when it came to Gaga’s hotel accommodations. Each bed was required to have a power strip next to it and the room had to have an iPod player, a DVD player, “fresh organic milk,” Splenda pellets and eight coffee mugs.
Her bedroom was also required to have either an elliptical or a cross trainer, humidifier, four sets of lavender towels, two “rolling wardrobe racks with 40 hangers on each rail,” organic kale and bottles of olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
Why anyone would need the makings of a salad in her bedroom at all times is anyone’s guess. Maybe the mannequin was just watching her figure.
