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". But
Carey's 2010 rider reflects her growth as an artist: the bubbly has been replaced with a $200
bottle of cabernet sauvignon and her dressing room is outfitted with two dozen white roses and
vanilla aromatherapy candles.
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
