Katy Perry has always taken pains to portray herself as a sweet glittery kitten of a lady, but Katy Perry’s concert rider, posted by The Smoking Gun, reveals the hidden diva lurking beneath all that pancake makeup. First starters, Perry’s dressing rooms all require cream-colored egg chairs (one with a footstool) and, of course, mountains of fresh flowers. “White and purple hydrangeas, pink & white roses and peonies,” are preferred, but Katy will reluctantly deal with a “selection of seasonal white flowers to include white orchids” if the 24-hour florist happens to have run dry. But if you bring Katy carnations, so help her god… “ABSOLUTELY NO CARNATIONS.” They are a filler flower! Why don’t you just make flowers out of used toilet paper and old paper bags if you’re going to sink that low? Seriously!
The entire rider is worth reading, but the section on Perry’s chauffeur stipulations are particularly stringent: “The driver will not start a conversation w/ the client, ” “Do not ask for autographs or pictures, and especially not while driving!,””Do not stair(sic) at the backseat thru the rearview mirror,” and our personal favorite “”The driver will never assume. Always ask if in doubt.” Assume what? That is he or she is acting sufficiently like a robot that happens to driving Katy Perry’s limo? Actually, Katy used to have a limo-driving robot at one point. Remember the end of Terminator? Yup, that’s how a diva does it.
