Katy and John’s Backstage “Needs”
What do one of music’s biggest couples want in their dressing rooms?
We’ve heard of some pretty tall orders from big celebs when it comes to Backstage requirements (or ‘riders’ as they’re known in the industry).
Beyoncé famously prefers all-white furniture and needs the temperature to be 22 degrees, while Adele hates citrus fruit so much she has banned it from her personal dressing room!
So what do lovebirds Katy Perry and John Mayer need to stay refreshed backstage?
Not that much, actually!
John does have a taste for fine aged Scotch (specifically $95-a-bottle Laguvulin 16), requesting it along with water, soda and a fresh fruit platter (nice and healthy) - but is otherwise quite tame.
Katy is a BIT strange and extravagant, asking for a whole bowl of Ranch dressing (sorry what?) along with an array of crudities for dipping (oh, that makes more sense). In order to keep her look together, Ms. Perry also requests a full-length mirror and a director’s chair – presumably for make-up application.
