10 Celebrity Divas & Their Outrageous Demands

Fame affects everyone differently. Some celebrities refuse to let it go to their heads and remain level-headed no matter what happens; however, others are the complete opposite – they develop a sense of entitlement. While it’s normal for celebrities to have requests for their dressing rooms, some have ridiculous demands, which make them look spoiled and ungrateful. From private planes and red toilet paper to private gyms and cotton candy machines, there’s no limit to the lengths some celebs expect people to go to in their honor. Here is our list of 10 celebrity divas and their outrageous demands!

10. Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer Lopez has developed a reputation for being a diva. She was reportedly dropped from performing at the Indian Premier League opening ceremony after her manager asked organizers to make a private plane available for her and to pay for hotel rooms for members of her entourage, including stylists and a personal chef. The “Jenny From The Block” singer also allegedly asked for nine dressing rooms for her 90-person entourage for an interview she was doing with the BBC.

9. Mariah Carey

According to Kate Garraway of London’s Good Morning Television, Mariah Carey made crazy demands when she was in the UK to promote the movie “Precious.” Garraway claims that Carey arrived with an entourage and it was their job to make sure she looked perfect on air. Two people from her entourage reportedly lowered her onto the morning show’s sofa to keep her from crushing her dress and she also brought her own toilet roll to the set.

8. Rihanna

Rihanna has definitely developed a reputation for being a diva. When she was on shoot for “Where Have You Been,” she reportedly requested a king-sized bed so that she could nap between takes and she also asked that no one bring bananas on set because she hates them. It doesn’t end there. Other sources say that the “Live Your Life” singer also insists that her dressing room be draped in black or dark blue drapes with icy blue chiffon draped nicely on top.

When Nicki Minaj tours, she reportedly has some ridiculous demands. She asks for 24 Dasani water bottles, 12 at room temperature and 12 on ice. She also wants lots of wings in three 12-piece buckets – but she doesn’t want any thighs. The “Super Bass” singer also requests two dozen pink or white roses, candles with the scent of baked goods, Halls Mentho-Lyptus Honey Lemon Throat Cough Drops, contact lenses solution with case, two space heaters and a cool mist humidifier.

6. Justin Timberlake

Justin Timberlake has been acting like a diva for years. Back in 2003, when he was touring solo, he reportedly had a few demands for his hotel in the UK. He asked them to put a big mirror on his ceiling above his bed and for a private gym in his room so he could work out privately. When he was celebrating the premiere of “Friends with Benefits” back in 2011, he still had big demands. He reportedly had guests booted from an elevator when he was ready to leave, so that he could use it privately.

5. Kanye West

Kanye West’s requests are said to rival Mariah Carey’s. When he made an appearance on BBC’s “Later With Jools Holland,” he reportedly insisted that they iron his dressing room carpet before he recorded his spot on the show. Even though Kings of Leon were also booked, his entourage took up more than half of the 15 dressing rooms that were available. When he arrived at the studio, he reportedly asked that it all be pulled down and rebuilt for his specific needs.

4. Beyonce

Beyonce may play it off like she isn’t a diva, but anyone who has been in the business for as long as she has definitely has some diva requests. When she is on tour, she is said to have a number of diva demands. She reportedly asks for alkaline water, new toilet seats and red toilet paper. She also allegedly asks that all her crew members wear 100 percent cotton and that her water be chilled to 21 degrees and served through $900 titanium straws.

3. Christina Aguilera

On the set of “The Voice,” Christina Aguilera has reportedly been a total diva with her ridiculous demands. Since gaining weight, the “Bionic” singer is said to be insecure about her figure. She reportedly asks to watch each scene that she’s in and, if she doesn’t look good, she asks that it be re-shot. Aguilera is also said to demand that stylists bring her the latest slimming fashions and she also orders makeup artists to make her face look thinner.
