In Touch claims to have a copy of Madonna‘s tour rider from her MDNA extravaganza, and if the document is real, her demands are quite stringent. Her Madgesty requests all-vegan meals, no fewer than 20 international phone lines and plenty of flowers — specifically, white and pink roses and lilies whose stems have been cut to 6 inches.
Madonna’s 200-person entourage includes her yoga instructor, a dry cleaner, personal chefs, 30 bodyguards and an acupuncturist. MTV News rightly raises an eyebrow at the accommodations portion of the rider, noting, “We can’t help but wonder if that very large number includes crew members that would be backstage on any artists’ tour.”
Perhaps the most unusual part of the Madonna tour rider is that she requests that all furniture be removed from her hotel rooms and replaced with pieces that she’s shipped along in advance.
Do you think this tour rider is bogus, even though it’s for someone as famous as Madonna?
