Lady Gaga's Bizarre Backstage Demands

Lady Gaga's Bizarre Backstage Demands-photo

Think Lady Gaga's wardrobe is a little out of the ordinary? You should check out her dressing room.

Hollywood Life has obtained the "Alejandro" singer's contract rider—the list of amenity requests that touring acts send to event promoters prior to their performances—and there are a couple of items that might be considered a touch idiosyncratic.

Such as? Oh, an oxygen tank. Presumably, the Pantless One can't get the job done properly unless she has her own air supply at her disposal.

Dinner is also a very important topic for the 24-year-old songbird: Every night of the week specifies a particular cuisine, and if it isn't served by 5 p.m., promoters risk being in breach of contract. Gaga's menu plan is as follows:

Mon – BBQ Night
Tues. – Asian Night
Wed. – Mexican Night
Thurs. – American Night
Fri. – Carving Night (Include Tri Tip & Ham)
Sat. – Pasta Bar (Assorted Pasta types, meats, veggies, sauces)
Sun. – Turkey Dinner with all the trimmings

Odd, you'd think that if Gaga was hungry, she could just pull something off of the wardrobe rack to munch on.

Of course, there have been pickier artists on the touring circuit:

What do you think of Gaga's concert demands—outlandish, or perfectly reasonable for a legend-in-the-making such as herself? Let us know in the comments section.

    I think oxygen is reasonable want but to 'demand' ,that's a different story. For someone who tried to claim she's not materialistic, i think it's quite the contradiction. I remember watching an interview where she stated she's 'true to myself'. If that was the case, she'd take the tan off, and bring white back. I just hate hypercritical people. I think her next fashion statement will be someone's fist in her face.

    it's sad if we think oxygen and food are weird.i would demand no mobile phones within 100 metres of me .lol.

    She a big star, and some big stars can be demanding. Oxygen tank seems a little over the top--maybe she should quit smoking. Oh she doesn't, well perhaps she does and you don't know about it, or perhaps she doesn't. One of lifes big mysteries.

    Why are you guys complaining that this isn't news? Look at the site. Celebuzz! It's not like you're going to hear about riots in Kyrgyzstan on here. I couldn't care less what Gaga eats because I don't worship her. It's just funny seeing you people scramble to hate her or scramble to defend her.

    wow pop stars are such primma donnas seriously as much money as she makes she should take care of her personal needs herself those of us in the REAL world here workin REAL jobs dont get ANY special treatment at work the ONLY time we even GET a meal from work is Xmas and/or thanksgiving so yeah i think this is total spoiled brat crap! Guess you don't know much about how the music business works when people are on the road for weeks or months at a time then. It's part of the contract to feed them. Trust me, the last thing most people want is for the Bieber's of the world to slide on down to Denny's so they can get mobbed and create chaos for us normal people. Nobody cares if you go out to eat.

    This was an article about nothing. As one poster correctly pointed out, The menu is to feed dozens of people who work on the road for long periods of time. It would have been more revealing if the details of what the singer (sic) herself wanted in her private dressing room were listed. This is a very general menu that looks a lot like the menu at some of the university cafeterias I used to visit.

    i think it makes total sense to lay out what should be for dinner each night. its not like the venues she plays at communicate with eachother and say "oh gaga had fish last night, so dont serve it for her tonight" otherwise she'll have salad with chicken every night while shes on tour. how boring.

  • random

    honestly. is there nothing more important to report? this is a person who lives on the road more than half the time. no home cooking. why oh why would it seem inappropriate for her to request good food, the kind of food she wants to eat... a variety that assures she won't get the customary layout of the same old cold cuts and celery sticks? this is a waste of a web page

    I think her demands are completely reasonable. Travel enough and you'll appreciate oxygen to catch your breath and the food generally given to bands is PURE CRAP. Promoters and event managers do as little as possible to keep costs down and could care less about the act. Lady Gaga is a complete band and not just a single person. band create music you dipsh*t.

    When Van Halen's ryder was published everyone was outraged that they demanded a large bowl of M & M's with all the red ones removed. But in the end it turned out to be a very clever way of ensuring everything is getting done. A big touring show has a ton of little details and if something as easy as removing all the red M & M's can't be done properly then what else has been done half-way?

    Booo Hoooo! Go f*ck Yourself because I am a FREE BITCH! I make $500,000.00 a day.

    whilst ur all commenting on other ppls quotes etc ^^^^ i wud just like to say u all need to get a life and yes lady gaga has werid fashion bt its amazing and she shows ppl that u can be different and u dont have to b the same as everyone else and be another sheep in the herd u can stand out and still be brillant!!! i love lady gaga for this and i think ppl should stop judging her because u wudnt like it if ppl jugde u would u? and if this is true about her lunch plan or watever (which i dont think is true) then so what? and if she did eat this much then gud on her she deserves it!!! i admire her and if u other ppl dont then thats ur loss!!! :P I WUD ALSO LIKE TO POINT OUT IM 13 SO UP URS!!!!

    If you lived your life on the road and were served the same bland deli tray every day, you would want a good meal. Working hard and living on the road is tough! Good food is very important.

    So, when you're a normal person, meal planning is considered responsible, and eating early is considered healthy. But if you're Lady Gaga, it's demanding and weird? Meh. At least she's not going with the more common diet of superstars: speed, hard liquor, and a burger once a week which is vomited up almost immediately afterward.

    It doesn't have to be dramatic at all, perhaps a failed skydive? i don't wish her dead, i anxiously await the time of her death, big difference. You're pathetic.

    The "weirdest" item on this list, the Oxygen tank, actually makes the most sense...considering Gaga has confirmed that Lupus, a disease that often affects the lungs and respiratory functions, runs in her family and she has tested borderline positive for it. So really, she's just trying not to, you know, die. Sometimes you feel like a nut...

    STFU. This is fake. you're only spreading what ever crap tabloids fabricate without bothering to consider the source. The ACTUAL ryder leaked around early this year and NOTHING of this was on there. Perez even reported on it. The most outrageous thing was how she's very specific about her cheese. STFU

    She is a performance artist not a singer and certainly not a good song writer. Madonna did it better and has been doing it longer.

    You know you can just change the station, wishing her dead is a little too... melodramatic. The only thing worse than a drama queen is a drama king. It doesn't have to be dramatic at all, perhaps a failed skydive? i don't wish her dead, i anxiously await the time of her death, big difference.

    Frankly doesn't seem to out of the ordinary. She eats normal food. She has the right to make sure its reasonable. She apparently thinks O2 will help her sing? I don't know but considering it weird seems like a stretch.

    Stop trying to make up stories about Gaga ... don't you think the girl gets enough hate and ridicule by the people and media?You won't be happy till she's dead. dang right! can't wait till that day. she's just frickin' terrible. her music is terrible, her fashion is terrible, oh, and her music. terrible. had to double up on that. so sick of hearing her.

    I doubt this is legit, but if it is, good for her. It takes 80 wranglers just to unload the two dozen plus semis that carry the stage, props, art installations, hydraulics, lighting, etc. And it all has to be installed, tested, checked and sound checked. She also has over a dozen dancers and band members, plus the costumers, makeup people, and all the other off-stage personnel needed to pull off her kind of show. So if she's insisting on treating the company to a good meal every night, with time to digest before show time, then good on her!
