No "busy patterns" backstage for Mariah

Monday 19 April 2010

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 bathroom.
