Ever wonder what Katy Perry requires in her dressing room during concerts? Check out a few pages from her 2011 Tour Rider. These are requests and requirements that many artists give concert venues tour managers prior to their appearance. In total, Katy’s tour rider is 45 pages long, but we’ll just post a few here. Her requirements don’t seem to be as outlandish as other celebrity performers that require X amount of blue m&m’s in their dressing room. But she was recently criticized for minor rumors and things such as banning carnations and banning drivers looking at her or starting a conversation.
In response Katy adjusted her Tour Rider to make her less “Diva-ish.” Katy told USA Today, “The whole driver thing, I have no idea where that came from. My response was, ‘Just change it. Make it not so silly!’”
“My sister handles flowers and VIP stuff. Maybe she has a beef with carnations, but I don’t think so. Anyone who knows me knows I’m easygoing. I’m just an entertainer. I’m not asking for the sun to shine at night.”

She says she likes my watch, but she wants Steve’s AP
And she stay up all hours watching QVC
She said she loves my songs, she bought my mp3
And so I put her number in my Bold BB
I got a black BM, She got a white TT
She wanna see what’s hiding in my CK briefs
I tell her wear suspenders and some PVC
And then I’ll film it all up on my JVC…
The MXA60 Integrated Audio System was designed by the same team of renowned McIntosh engineers who created the company’s high performance Reference System. The new ultimate-quality tabletop system features a high-performance 75-watt-per-channel amplifier, state-of-the-art CD/SACD/MP3 player, vacuum tube preamplifier, as well as an AM/FM/RBDS Tuner and high performance, two-way bass reflex loudspeaker system that packs all the legendary McIntosh sound into a smaller package.
Following up on Tiësto’s Kaleidoscope we come across the “Feel it” video, some might consider it a little controversial not because of nudity, language, or obscene content but because it mixes big players of 2 different genres. Tiësto one of the biggest “electronic” DJs of today and Hip Hop artist Three 6 Mafia, Sean Kingston, & Flo Rider all big names in their own right. Recently you might have heard a lot of electronic beats in hip hop music but not this level of compilation. When I first heard of this joint venture I honestly expected something terrible but was very pleasantly surprised. I suggest you listen with open ears and mind then you decide for yourself. Here at EvilStar we give it 2 Thumbs up.
For as much as I enjoyed the recent release from world renown DJ/Producer Tiesto, I am overwhelmed with the mass appeal it actually has potential for. It is truly a testament to how much electronic music has truly crossed over into the mainstream market. This has been apparent for years in countries abroad, but shockingly, it’s until now, America is finally catching up with the trend. Most of this could be due to the crumbling infrastructure of the formally all powerful “Record Industry” and the paradigm shift leaning toward a more independent distribution of music. Yet to see more familiar names like Nelly Furtatdo, and Tegan and Sara as collaborators is exciting, but I begin to wonder where all this is going when you start to see more and more collaborations just for the sake of having collaborations. It has been announced Tiesto is to be collaborating with even more mainstream artist like the Three 6 Mafia, Sean Kingston, and Flo Rida. This is just my opinion but I have heard the track “Feel It” and wasn’t very impressed. I still have hope though, through their methods of promoting the track they have released a means for aspiring remixers to take hold of parts of the track via Beatport.com and I anticipate it might generate some positive results but we’ll just have to see.
