Is Pharrell Williams a diva on the road? Well, according to the The Smoking Gun, he’s apparently making some extravagant backstage demands.
The publication has obtained a 2015 tour rider for the musician, who reportedly requested very specific items before concerts including a framed photograph of late astronomer Carl Sagan.
The list also demands Nilla Wafers, a case of alkaline water, 12 cans of “SUPER COLD” soda, Pedialyte, a liter of Silver Patron Tequila and another of Kettle One vodka, Cetaphil Cleansing Lotion, fresh ginger root, a jar of grape jelly and one loaf of gluten-free bread.
Since Williams is on the Atkins Diet, he also wants his food “to be specifically cooked for him on a daily basis at the venues.” Additionally, he also wanted “Grass Fed Beef only if available, otherwise no beef.”
The rider,which is reportedly three pages long, also requests all advertisements inside the venue must be removed. “We are not hawking pizza or the local ambulance chaser,” it reads.
