Beyonce’s ‘Insane’ Tour Demands

Beyonce Knowles insane tour demands

Even though Beyonce and her mother Tina Knowles run a tight ship on the road, word is still filtering out about Beyonce’s insane tour demands.

The mother-of-one who is currently on a world tour in Europe is living up to her reputation as a demanding shrew who is hard to work with. Not only does Beyonce have strict rules concerning food and drink consumed by her dancers and road crew, but she even demands that their clothing be made of 100% cotton! Who does that?

From Yahoo News:

According to Australia’s Daily Telegraph, the singer requires $900 worth of titanium drinking straws “which will be used to drink a special alkaline water that’s served at exactly 21 degrees.”

Beyoncé also requires that her dressing room walls be painted off-white, and that a new toilet seat is brought in at each venue. And next to the toilet? Red toilet paper – something we didn’t even know existed until now.

A hand-carved ice ball is to be presented to her at the end of every concert for her to suck on to protect her vocal chords.
All of the concert crew’s clothing has to to be made of 100 percent cotton, and only 100 percent cotton.

If any of those stagehands were hoping to get some Cheetos during the performance, they are out of luck. Beyoncé reportedly banned all junk food backstage, only allowing green vegetables, oatcakes and plates of almonds served in glass platters.

      Not too much actually, especially for the show she puts on. All she is asking for is straws, water, ice (I’d LOVE a hand carved ice ball), a new toilet (if I traveled as much I’d demand the same thing!), and red toilet paper. And the walls? So what…she didn’t ask for a crazy color. You never know what makes a person be able to do their job just right.

      I work from home and I have to work in total silence, blinds exactly half way, and my office has to be spotless or else I can’t concentrate. And yes, my office is green because the color makes me think about money and keeps me motivated when there’s NO boss around.

      i think most celebs do that stuff to see how much they could get away with, half of em polly dont even really require all of that. if i was top billin’ a joint like her, my demands would be crazy too, especially if i knew they would cater to me like that. have ‘em sweating bullets if i come backstage and my candy corn not sitting upright like pyramids. I mean if even just ONE is turned over on its side, im seeking emotional distress damages :hahaha:

      Honestly, I think Beyonce’s camp leaked this info themselves. And if any of it is true, I don’t see it being ridiculous demands. Her job is to perform and to perform in a strict schedule. Any cancellations would mean refunds on tickets. So obviously to keep the show going, she’ll make requests like special straws and water served at a specific temperature. I also drink alkalined water and refuse to drink tap. It’s called a preference and really if she can afford it then whatever. As far as the must wear all cotton request, maybe she has allergies to other fabrics, who knows. Either way if they want to work for her those are her rules :shrug:

      Her requests aren’t too outlandish. Hopefully there are other food choices for the crew though. I eat semi healthy. No fast food or red meat. However, I encourage others to eat healthier and not force them to do so. When I have guests I include food they eat and healthier options as well.

      You can actually buy a 3 pack roll of red toilet paper for $15.90. It is a biodegradable, non-toxic, soothing tissue and does not bleed any color when wet.

      Made of 100% biodegradable, virgin pulp that is chlorine-free and entirely recyclable. A fun, stylish gift for the hostess that has everything!

      “You can actually buy a 3 pack roll of red toilet paper for $15.90. It is a biodegradable, non-toxic, soothing tissue and does not bleed any color when wet.

      Made of 100% biodegradable, virgin pulp that is chlorine-free and entirely recyclable. A fun, stylish gift for the hostess that has everything!

      FYI…”
