17 Worst Divas and Their Crazy Demands
Whatever you do, don’t photograph Ariana Grande on the wrong side of her face. If you forget which side it is, just put down the camera and walk away. Don’t be surprised when she asks you to carry her as well. These outrageous divas have such crazy demands. There’s just nothing that will please them! When you get to a certain level, you can’t forget all of the little people that helped you get where you are today. However, Ariana is on the little side so maybe that’s where all of this is coming from. Let’s see who else is on the list of diva demands.
You can’t be Mariah Carey without a few crazy demands. She once ordered people to lower her body on a sofa to prevent the crushing of her dress. You can’t mess up the look or else she’ll get really mad. Wet Paint also reported that she needs chilled Cristal, white roses, and dark-colored couches for her dressing rooms. Maybe she puts Bobby Womack on the radio while practicing her vocal scales!
Ariana Grande has got one less problem without the right side of her face. Photographers are only allowed to photograph her face from the left side. Cosmopolitan also found a list of interview topic she considered off-limits. Nobody will dare ask her about her relationships, Justin Bieber, Jennette McCurdy, and Mariah Carey. Grande told a radio show that a photographer was just mad because she left to change her top and she did return but he already left.
Lindsay Lohan made a guest appearance on “Glee” back in 2012 and caused a bit of drama. Us Magazine said she was six hours late to shoot her scenes and had “a million demands” like her trailer size. Dot Marie Jones, who played Coach Beiste, tweeted, “Gonna be a long day!! Some ppl show up late and just throw a wrench in things. Not cool!” It’s like a battle: Lohan versus the Beiste!
Does Nicki Minaj like candles that smell like apple pie? It is possible since Radar reported that she demands a gallon of lemonade, two dozen pink roses, and candles that smell like baked goods. Just imagine the “Anaconda” singer sipping on lemonade while the scent of cinnamon rolls wafts in the air around the pink roses. This is a lot going on, but at least she doesn’t make people photograph a side of her face!
She’s got the moves like Jagger, she’s got the cookies too. Christina Aguilera demanded Flintstones vitamins, Oreo cookies, and soy cheese while she was on tour. You can’t have a party without Flintstones vitamins. At least she was trying to get all of her nutrients. You can’t eat a balanced meal on just cookies and cheese! Aguilera will return to “The Voice” with Adam Levine and Blake Shelton on February 23. She is replacing Gwen Stefani.
Rihanna was making the video for “Where Have You Been” when she requested a king-sized bed so that she could nap between takes. Of course, she loves her California King beds! She even made a song about them. Her lyrics state, “In this California king bed, we’re ten thousand miles apart. I’ve been California wishing on these stars for your heart.” You’ll always have the bed, Rihanna. She also hates bananas.
Carnations, also known as dianthus caryophyllus, are a type of flower that is used in Greek ceremonial crowns. Around the world, people wear them to express admiration, love, socialism, revolutions, Women’s Day, the purity of a mothers love, tears of the Virgin Mary, and Oscar Wilde. But don’t bring them around Katy Perry. She doesn’t like them in her dressing room. And don’t look at her when you’re driving her to John Mayer’s house because it’s not allowed.
Madonna hates germs so much that she won’t be pleased with a dressing room until a team of sterilizers vanquishes the skin, hair, or saliva. She also expected VIP treatment when she visited Malawi in 2013. The Malawi government said, “Granted, Madonna is a famed international musician. But that does not impose an injunction of obligation on any government under whose territory Madonna finds herself, including Malawi, to give her state treatment.” That’s cold.
Jennifer Lopez will have her cake and eat it too, as long as the cake is the color of white. She demands an all-white dressing room with white couches, white candles, and white flowers. Perez Hilton also reported that she needs faux leather seats, a champagne fridge, and a pair of diamond-encrusted headphones when she travels. Don’t forget her boyfriends also need to be her former dancers. How humble! How trendy! How diva!
Check the toilet seats because Queen Bey is coming to town! Beyonce asks for alkaline water, new toilet seats, red toilet paper and that her staff members wear only clothes that are 100 percent cotton. She also needs her water to be chilled to 21 degrees and served through titanium straws. This must be the secret to maintaining her enormous talent. But it would take forever to get the temperature to 21 degrees. Not worth it.
She loves you like a love song baby and if you’re ready, come and get it. But don’t come if you want to talk to her about Justin Bieber. In 2014, she banned his name from being uttered and even crew members who were named Justin had to go by a different name! That is some Mommy Dearest wire hangers craziness. She also needed Taco Bell and Wendy’s available for consumption at all times. This last part is not so bad and seems quite normal.
Britney Spears needed Southern comfort food backstage at the 2007 MTV VMAs but went in a different direction for her Femme Fatale Tour. She banned all junk food from the dressing room! Say it ain’t so! What if a dancer needs a protein boost with hamburgers? She also required two humidifiers and a miniature gym. Imagine Britney Spears swinging on a jungle gym before each show. It sounds like something from her stay in Vegas!
You won’t believe what Lady Gaga ordered. She requested a bunch of strange things for her 2010 Monster Ball World Tour. She needed a mannequin with puffy pink pubic hair and 28 bottles of room temperature water! Were all the bottles just for you or your dancers, Gaga? That must be some bladder. The mannequin makes sense as a sort of prop, unless there is a ritual reminiscent of the movie “Lars and the Real Girl.”
This one’s not so much outrageous as it is cute. Taylor Swift needs Ben and Jerry’s ice cream, Twizzlers, chocolate milk, and Kraft mac and cheese at her shows. What would your new BFF Karlie Kloss think, Taylor? That stuff is like poison to the supermodel’s diet of raisins and a piece of lettuce. One would think that Taylor also requires her many cats to be on tour as well, unless the cats are a lie!
Jordin Sparks likes dill pickle spears, but hates hot dogs and hamburgers. Jordin, you haven’t tried a burger until you’ve eaten a Juicy Lucy. It’s got cheese on the inside of the patty that oozes out when you bite into it. It will change your life. Wonder if she likes watching SpongeBob in her dressing room since she Instagrammed a picture of him and said it was her current mood! You know what SpongeBob likes! Krabby patties!
Miley flipped out on the phone when her assistant got her entrance wrong at the VMAs right before she did the famous twerk. But her rider will have you speechless. She told OK Magazine that she wants Guitar Hero on her tour bus. That is just the most insane thing. Miley is still supporting the video game industry by playing an old game while people have moved on to playing Destiny on PS4. Rock on.
Kris Jenner tried to mess with Apple and lost. She called an Apple store in Los Angeles to try and reserve five iPhones. The employees refused by saying that nobody received preferential treatment no matter how famous they are and she demanded to talk to the managers. She still didn’t get her way and sent her assistant to wait in line. Hopefully, that assistant got paid extra for their trouble.
