Katy Perry

Backstage Demands

Let Them Eat Rabbit Food!

0103-katy-perry-concert-demands
Katy Perry made a slew of backstage demands for her New Year's Eve concert in Vegas ...  crazier than Mary J. Blige's proviso requiring a new toilet seat for each venue.  

TMZ got hold of the deal Katy cut with Caesar's Palace  ... and her demands for backstage catering read like a farmer's market shopping list.

-fresh veggies AT ALL TIMES -- including spinach/broccoli/celery/beets/carrots/kale, etc.
-two large baskets of fruit -- one must be tropical.
-dinner must include a vegetarian option ... plus quinoa or couscous.
-ALL meals must be low-fat and health conscious and cannot contain MSG.

Katy's dressing room requirements are even more specific:

-fresh organic grown fruit (including SLICED pineapple, mango, kiwis, etc)
-fresh cut crudites (cucumber, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, snap peas & celery ... plus ranch dip)
-healthy granola
-dried figs
-whole grain tortilla chips
-large bowl hummus
-fresh made guacamole

Katy also likes fermented grapes  -- 2 bottles of Pinot Grigio and 1 Argentine Malbec.

Someone needs to tell her ... wine is a gateway to the path of evil ... lined with Cheetos and pizza.

There is nothing excessive or weird about those demands! She wants healthy food! When you only eat fruits and veggies you have to eat a lot of them. I would love to ask for the same! Tmz is a bunch of asses! Wine is healthy in moderation, extremely healthy and how dare they talk about Cheetos and pizza when she is obviously making very healthy choices and avoiding that crap. Why can't they just report on what she asks for? Why do they have to try and make it controversial? It's getting old, fast.

These demands may seem unreasonable to some, but in the entertainment business where imagine is EVERYTHING it's important to stay FIT. Katy Perry and others like her are on the road performing, doing interviews, appearances, etc.. their lives are at all times hectic. On top of that and having to stay in shape, they can't even live like a normal person, as they are constantly hounded by the paparazzi and fans. So I don't see anything wrong with her list of demands.

Does anyone like that song "unconditional?" Un-con-di-tion-al... Too many syllables... Doesn't sound right.

Those demands are tame and are not at all wasteful when you consider it can be donated to a food pantry (doubtful) or the employees can score some food to take home. Madonna asks for 20 international phone lines and a bouquet of lily's and roses with the stems trimmed with absolute precition to the same size, among other thigns. Mariah Carey asks for a huge number of things including 20 white kittens and doves. M.I.A. (yeah remember her?) wants personal dancers wearing bourkas. JayZ and Beyonce will only travel to the venue in a new black Maybach. There are tons of more ridiculous demands than that. I just don't get your Katy Haty attitudes.

Backstage demands? How about Kate Perry eats healthy and loves her crew so much she wants them to do the same.

This is a horrible article written to be condescending to someone doing something right.

...and dear writer, what do you find to be good choices in food?

She'd be even healthier if she'd dump John Mayer.

Those are very healthy requests. If they left it to the people at the venue they would be eating generic food.

Clearly TMZ has nothing to report on. These demands are normal... Ive seen worse on low budget films.

I hate to say this but has TMZ become totally lame with their stories over the last 6 months? Radaronline has far better stories.

Personally, I'd choose meats and cheeses to snack on backstage. Eating fruits and veggies is great but if you combine that with grains and processed foods it's a recipe for obesity and heart disease...
