What does a music
legend like Mariah Carey
need to stay happy between performances while on the road? According to the 2010 rider that goes along with her concert tour she needs two dozen white roses, a $200 bottle of Cabernet
Sauvignon, and no "busy patterns" on the furniture
, among other things. TheSmokingGun.com
reports that this years list is actually less indulgent than previous ones, noting that she no longer requires Cristal champagne
or "bendy straws" (ha!) to drink it with. She does, however, want vanilla aromatherapy candles, a room temperature of 'about 75 degrees,' eight 'tall, leafy plants' in her living space, and a lamp or clip light that can be used to offset or replace 'harsh lighting' in the bathroom.
If this is the gist of her list I actually think it's pretty tame -- if I could I'd ask for a room filled with roses too!
