Katy Perry seems like such a fun gal, right? But her concert rider, obtained by the Smoking Gun, is as diva-licious as Mariah's or J.Lo's. Some particularly amusing bits:
- Chauffeurs are not allowed to talk to Perry, her guests, or her fans. They're certainly not allowed to ask for autographs or pictures. They're not even allowed to look at the backseat through the rearview mirror.
- She requires "white and purple hydrangeas, pink and white roses, and peonies," or, as a second choice, a “selection of seasonal white flowers to include white orchids.” But! And this part is underlined: "ABSOLUTELY NO CARNATIONS."
- Her dressing room must be outfitted with two cream-colored egg chairs, a "perspex modern style" coffee table, two "French ornate style" lamps, and a glass-doored refrigerator.
- Promoters are warned that they might need to hold back tickets for Perry's team to provide to "resellers" on the "secondary market." Which basically means, the Smoking Gun notes, "Perry reserves the right to pocket some of the proceeds from the sale of tickets—not made available at face price to her fans—scalped at inflated prices by these brokers."
