Beyonce's 'Diva' Demands Revealed In Alleged Tour Rider

May 02, 2013 | Updated May 03, 2013

Beyonce has her moments, but the singer's definitely not the most difficult celebrity around. So when news of her alleged tour rider hit the web, it had us scratching our heads.

Queen Bey is currently jet-setting around the globe for her "Mrs. Carter Show" world tour. A supposed tour rider of Beyonce's "diva" demands" has leaked revealing that the "Bow Down" singer is very particular about what she wants while performing.

The U.K.'s Daily Star reportedly scooped up a copy of the list. What are some of the included requirements?

  • All crew members have to wear 100% cotton.
  • Alkaline water must be chilled to 21 degrees and served with $900 titanium straws.
  • Bathrooms must have new toilet seats and red toilet paper at every venue.
  • Hand-carved ice balls should be made after each show to cool her throat.

A spokesperson for the superstar singer could not immediately be reached for comment at time of publication.

Whether or not the rider is legitimate is unclear. After all, claims that Bey demanded a $1 million nursery installed for Blue Ivy and $6,000 worth of imported cigars and alcohol for Jay-Z at the Super Bowl were false. An NFL spokesperson told TMZ the report was "pure pulp fiction" and said she was a joy to work with.

One thing that has been confirmed is Beyonce does require a lot of space backstage.

E! News spoke with a representative for the U.K.'s O2 arena -- where the 31-year-old will perform through May 5 -- regarding Beyonce's dressing rooms. She isn't only using the venue's newly refurbished, luxury dressing rooms, but she is also using a space typically used to accomodate entire sports teams.

“They are much bigger though, and she was given free rein to refurbish them to her own taste," a source told the London Evening Standard regarding the larger rooms. "They’re also in a quieter part of the backstage area, which gives her a better atmosphere to get focused for her shows.”

Last week, it was reported "no photo credentials" have been granted for the tour because Beyonce doesn't want any unflattering images published like the ones taken during the Super Bowl Halftime Show.

The Houston native will finish the European leg of her tour on June 1 and hit the U.S. on June 28 for her debut at Los Angeles' Staples Center.
