In the celebrity world, a ‘rider’ is an attachment to a contract that companies and venues make with celebrities. Most riders outline a set of demands or perks that a famous person needs on a movie set, backstage or even before an interview. Here are some of the most odd and insane perks celebs asked for…and got.
1. Katy Perry
Despite her girl-next-door image, Perry apparently has a long list of demands for what she needs backstage at her concerts. In addition to typical things such as certain kinds of food and drink, Perry has one outrageous demand: that no one on the concert staff speak to her unless she speaks to that person first. Yep, that’s right, Perry doesn’t want commoners yapping at her without getting the go ahead. Diva much?
