[The Morton Report] This story did the rounds in the UK a few years back, but as the late Queen Mother used to say, ”The old ones are always the best.”
A very famous and very wealthy female singer was invited to appear on a British television show. Used to dealing with stars, the television studio addressed the long list of requirements on the advance rider. On the big day all went well until after the performance and the star and her large entourage had left. Imagine the surprise when studio staff checked the star’s dressing room and found that everything that wasn’t nailed down had gone … even the electric kettle.
