A list of ‘demands’ made by Justin Bieber for his India tour is going viral after it was shared on Twitter Wednesday.
Music journalist Arjun S Ravi shared images of a ‘press release’ from Bieber’s people which lists a set of prerequisites to be arranged for the popstar. The non-negotiables include “a convoy of 10 luxury sedans and 2 Volvo buses” for Bieber and his 120-person-strong entourage. The singer has asked for a private Rolls Royce for himself, and will be given Z level security by the Maharashtra Police, in addition to his personal 8-member security detail.
“10 containers will be flown in with items like a ping pong table, PlayStation, IO HAWK, sofa set, washing machine, refrigerator, upholstery, wardrobe cupboard, massage table that will be used backstage. Arrangements for a Jacuzzi have also been made for Bieber’s personal use to unwind before he takes to the stage,” the list continued.
Two 5-star hotels have been reserved in their entirety for Bieber and his entourage. His personal 1,000-square-foot suite will be redesigned to appear more rustic.
“The promoters have also kept a private jet and chopper on stand-by to meet the artist’s immediate travel demands in India.”
“Bieber has also requested that his dressing room be entirely draped with white curtains, a large glass-door refrigerator, clothing shelves, eight power outlets and 12 white handkerchiefs. To quench his thirst, he demands 24 still water bottles, 24 alkaline water bottles, 4 energy drinks, 6 vitamin water bottles, 6 cream sodas as well as a cooler packed with assorted juices fizzy drinks. The rider also lists 4 natural juices, 4 vanilla protein drinks and half a gallon of almond milk,” the list goes on.
Curiously, Bieber has demanded that no lilies (the flower) be in his vicinity for the duration of his stay.
For the rest of the bizarre contents (which includes highly-detailed list of Bieber’s favourite T-shirts and non-alcoholic beverages and room fresheners), refer to the attached tweet.
Bieber will perform at the DY Patil Stadium in Mumbai on May 10 as part of his Purpose World Tour. It is the first time the international star is performing in India.
