Eminem’s Fishy Demand and Other Celebrity Riders (PHOTOS)

Celebs Born in August
See them before they were famous!
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.
