Diva Demands

Who hasn't heard about the ridiculous contract riders of musicians? Van Halen started it all in the 80's with their demand for a bowl of M&M's backstage with all the brown ones picked out. Their logic was to prove that the producers and stage managers had read and followed the entire contract therefore ensuring the safety and quality of their performance. 

Of course the little M&M test turned into a full opportunity for the diva tantrum. Now musicians demand all kinds of crazy things. Sure, they are living on the road and don't have access to their own kitchens and beds so I think it's fair they ask for things they way they want them. Within reason. But what's fun about being reasonable? :)

I got to thinking...what would I demand if I were a diva?

Here are my demands
A platter of fresh, ripe raspberries
Hot bacon
Numerous bouquets of white and pale pink peonies and lilacs
Diet Coke
Renew Lotion
Down alternative bedding--mattress protector, pillows, and comforter 
Pillowtop mattress
Electric blanket
White noise machine
A massage therapist!

What kinds of things would you be diva about?

Hmm I guess it had to be icecold Pepsi Max, German Chocolate, fluffy pillows, lots of books and DVD's (Mike and Molly, Reba etc.), Wi-fi, a comfortable Recliner and last but not least a Chocolate Sunday from Mc D. (with more hot chocolate sauce then ice cream, lol).

Jerky...yum. Diet Coke... yum. I think I just might add Reese's Pieces to your list. :)

Sonic Ice. A selection of best selling books. A fluffy robe, soft blanket, and big comfy chair.
