We have already spoken about the insane demands made by Hollywood actors on sets. But the la-la land of Hollywood is vast and extends to singers, models, popstars, directors, and so on. SO, basically, you will not be considered a high-profile celeb unless you make a crazy wish that throws the crew and staff for a loop. If you ever become wealthy and famous, don’t forget to turn on the spoilt-brat button and torment others with your complicated and ‘weird asks’. Find out 12 unbelievable demands made by celebrities while working.
If you ever plan on calling Drake to perform at your event, remember that only the audience will have fun, not you. His contract for rider requirements is lengthy and filled with numerous conditions from the number of rooms, incense sticks, and candles to the water bottle brands he needs in his room. Well, an artist can demand anything to set the mood.
While some celebs are specific about incense sticks and puppies, Metallica had other (strongly relatable) priorities- food. They were stringent about being served bacon for every meal, from morning to evening, during their 2004 tour. And now I can’t think about anything but the juicy and curly fat.
3. Mick Jagger
After the bacon episode, here is a celeb to bring your b^tt back on a healthy track with his bizarro demand. The Rolling Stones iconic singer, Mick Jagger ensured that he was provided with an air-conditioned 40-yard running track during the Coachella.
4. Lindsay Lohan
Lindsay has built a notorious image over the years for giving a difficult time to productions, directors, and costars. The “Mean Girls” diva had signed for “The Canyons” which was about nothing but s3x explorations. According to reports, as the shooting began, she demanded the entire crew to strip during her nude scenes. At last, the director had to concede and take down his pants.
5. Bill Cosby
Comedian Bill Cosby’s demands, as gathered from resources, sound pretty weird. According to sources, he asked Entertainment Tonight to always send the same reporter in her orange suit during interviews.
6. Mariah Carey
Maria has a thing for white. During her cameo in The White House The House, she demanded her trailer to be filled with white roses and white lamb soft-toys. The white obsession was also observed during her appearance for a British morning show as she reportedly asked for white Labrador puppies in her dressing room. Well, who doesn’t want to begin their day with puppies around?
7. Sharon Stone
Sharon Stone was shooting for an Italian film “Un ragazzo d’oro” when the paparazzi had hit the last nerve. She left the in a breeze without uttering a single word and headed straight for her car. Locked inside, she called her manager back in the US who later forwarded her message to the director’s brother. It said that Stone would return on the set, provided all the paparazzi and reporters left.
8. Daniel Day-Lewis
When a movie stars an a-list and gem of an actor, it has no choice but to concede to their demands. It may get tougher if the person is a method actor, for they need a specific mood and atmosphere to sink in the character. Daniel Day-Lewis asked all the British crew members to refrain from speaking in their accent on the set of “Lincoln” as he didn’t want to shake his accent for the former President of the USA, Abraham Lincoln. It doesn’t matter whatever he demanded as Lewis went home with a third Academy Award.
Remember the cameo of the iconic Prince on “New Girl”? He agreed to bless the show with his appearance on one condition. He insisted all the scenes with Khloe Kardashian and Kris Jenner to be removed from the episode.
You think Sheldon Cooper was impossible to live with? Try working for Beyonce. The music queen and mogul will not enter her dressing room until it is exactly 78 degrees. She will not have it if it is even a degree less or more.
11. Normani of Fifth Harmony
If the Metallica demands bacon, Normani also has a special preference in food. All her meals were clearly instructed to be served with apple sauce. The singer digs its taste and the baby food texture for some reasons.
12. Garry Marshall
The director who gave us some of the best classics like “The Princess Diaries”, “Pretty Woman” and “Runaway Bride” was also a great friend. Garry Marshall always added a condition in his contract, to cast Hector Elizondo in every movie he made. And thus we got the bodyguard of Anne Hathaway. Hector only discovered this after Garry passed away.
