(Newser) – Thought Lady Gaga was more down to earth than Mariah Carey and JLo? Think again: Gaga's got her own list of diva demands. Celebuzz got a copy of the concert rider from her Monster Ball tour, and it's a doozy:

  • For reasons unknown, she requires a mannequin (at least we assume that's what she means) in her backstage suite. Specifically, a "manquin [sic] with puffy pink public [sic] hair."
  • And that suite must be decorated in a "glam rock" style, complete with white leather couches, black satin drapes, and "silver statins [sic] draped over the walls."

  • She also requires fresh roses and very specific art on the walls: namely "old rock posters from her favorite artists [like] David Bowie, Queen, Elton John and Billy [sic] Holiday."
  • As for her hotel room, each bed has to have its own power strip, and she also needs an iPod player, multi-regional DVD player, elliptical machine or cross trainer, and coffee mugs—"not teacups."
  • Among the food she requests: peanut butter with flax seed and no more than four grams of sugar, homemade guacamole, Dunkin Donuts coffee, "extra long" straws, Activia yogurt, Jameson, and wine.
