No "busy patterns" backstage for Mariah

When we first published Mariah Carey's tour rider a few years ago, the singer required promoters to stock her backstage roost with Cristal champagne, which she consumed via "bendy straws".

As for the furniture in her "living room space", Carey wants "no busy patterns; black, dark grey, cream, dark pink are all fine". It is unclear what kind of negative effect plaid or tartan seating would have on the 41-year-old's performance. Carey's room "should be about 75 degrees", and a "lamp or clip light" should be provided so that "harsh lighting may be turned off" in her backstage bathroom.

That's a very good observation regarding Faded. I had never thought of it in that light, but now that you say it, I can kind of see the comparison. I love Faded. Such a great track.
