Celebrities are special. And in case you don’t believe it, they let you know by making certain demands called riders—criteria that must be met in order for them to perform.
The crazier riders are seen as examples of how “out there” some stars really are.
It’s rumored that Beyonce’s rider mandates alkaline water chilled to 21 degrees and served with $900 titanium straws.
Mariah Carey demands two-dozen white roses. Pop singer Katy Perry insists that chauffeurs not start a conversation with her. They’re also barred from staring at the backseat through the rearview mirror.
In comparison, singer/songwriter/ entrepreneur and Real Housewife of Atlanta, Kandi Burruss, has less lofty requirements. The Atlanta native needs Popeye’s chicken, KFC’s cole slaw, and a bathroom stocked with Cottonelle toilet paper and Dove soap. Pretty reasonable, I think.
Now, before you roll your eyes and call any of these people brats, take into account they they’re usually on the road more than they are at home. Then take a moment and think about your “must haves” when you’re traveling.
Whether we’re flying or road-tripping it, there are things we moms must have….the only difference is, we have to bring it ourselves. Oh well.
