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.

This is news??

Rock stars and other celebrities go vegetarian all the time.

In 1985 Morrissey and the Smiths topped the music charts in England with their album Meat Is Murder, and the album was everywhere on college radio stations here in the United States.

In a 1986 interview which appeared in the "Calendar" section of the Los Angeles Times, Madonna said the meat in the U.S. is contaminated with salmonella, "...and if you can be healthy without killing animals, why do it?"

In Rolling Stone, Chrissie Hynde of the Pretenders, a vegetarian since age 17, referred to Madonna as "...beautiful, vegetarian..."

In a 1987 interview with Vegetarian Times, Chrissie Hynde said:

"I don't see why I have to justify myself because I refuse to eat the bodies of other living creatures. I think it's weird and perverted. I put meat-eating in the same category as dogfighting, ****fighting, child molestation, and slavery."

When the Pretenders performed in San Diego, CA, in 1987, Chrissie Hynde praised San Diego as a great city, but said, "Unfortunately, you've still got your Wendy's and your McDonald's... but you can always burn them!"

And at the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, CA, here in the SF Bay Area in 1998, Chrissie Hynde similarly said to the audience, "What's that I smell? I hope it isn't burnt flesh!"

I related Chrissie Hynde's words to my friend Greg, a vegetarian since 1989. Greg told me that when Paul McCartney performed in Los Angeles in the '90s, none of the food vendors at the concert venue were serving meat... he said *that's* the kind of star power Paul McCartney commands!

Again, this is news??

Well, maybe it is news. Leonardo Da Vinci, a vegan five centuries before People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), said, "...the time will come when men will look upon the murder of animals as they now look upon the murder of men..."

Please join the many celebrities who have transitioned to a vegetarian or vegan diet:

Russell Brand, Kristen Wiig, Natalie Portman, Pamela Anderson, Toby MacGuire, Kristen Bell, Chris Martin, Bill Clinton, Al Gore, Amy Carter (daughter of Jimmy Carter), Lauren Bush (niece of George W. Bush), Ellen DeGeneres, Olivia Wilde, Kellie Pickler, Alec Baldwin, Anthony Kiedis, Leona Lewis, Paul McCartney, Carrie Underwood, Alicia Silverstone, Shania Twain, Ayssa Milano, Anne Hathaway, Brad Pitt, Christina Applegate, Lea Michele, Steve-O, Jared Leto, Portia DeRossi, Daryl Hannah, Russell Simmons, Sandra Oh, Petra Nemcova

Does anyone like the song "Unconditionally?" "I will love you un-con-di-tion-al-ly." As a music producer and writer who enjoys any kind of writing, that song upsets my ears.

Well she eats healthy and there's nothing really demanding or over the top about this. It's just really specific because she likes to eat vegetarian or health conscious. I hate Katy Perry but I've seen worse. JLO is pretty bad and so is Mariah. They want flowers flown in from Ethiopia and sh**. They always want outrageous stuff that you can't go to a farmers market for.
