Celebrities are notorious for requesting some interesting and often odd things on their “rider” — the things that a concert venue is required to provide for them upon arrival. Oftentimes it’s a very specific type of bottled water, a certain color of M&Ms … or in the case of Eminem, a nicely stocked fish pond.

According to The Sun, Mr. Slim Shady himself made the very un-gangster (but highly peaceful) request that his private area at a Northern Ireland festival contain a man-made pond stocked with koi carp fish. Oftentimes, said fish can cost hundreds of dollars a piece, but if it means keeping Eminem happy (because you know you don’t want an angry Eminem), perhaps a fish pond is the best option.
