Katy Perry Responds to Diva Backstage Concert Requirements
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.”
