[Blind Gossip] This singer has a big performance coming up very soon, so we thought we would tell you a quick story that demonstrates how her fun on-stage personality doesn’t really match up to her control-freak backstage personality.
When she was on tour in the last year or so, her concert rider included a table of fairly healthy foods (fruits and vegetables, chips and salsa, juices) for her dressing room.
At one venue, she heard that some food had been brought into a separate room for the crew. Well, our singer stormed into the catering room, saw the table laden with things like fried chicken, salads, soda, cookies, and chips… and went ballistic!
She yelled at everyone, demanding they get rid of everything. She screamed, “If I can’t have it, NOBODY can have it!” and started throwing away entire platters of food.
Since she was their boss, no one said a word. They just stood there, hungry, watching the out-of-control diva dump their dinner into the garbage… and then walk away triumphantly.
Diva: Katy Perry
Katy Perry likes to eat healthy food. She also likes to impose her personal diet on those around her.
We promised the crew person who told us about this event that we would not disclose the venue or the date. Just know that this particular food-dumping episode occurred before Katy Perry performed at the Super Bowl in February 2015. Yes, that was the one with Left Shark.
So, what does Katy Perry eat? Well, her recent contract rider is very specific.
She has to have “Fresh veggies AT ALL TIMES — including spinach/broccoli/celery/beets/carrots/kale, etc.”, “two large baskets of fruit – one must be tropical”, and “fresh cut crudites, hummus, and fermented grapes,” and “Kombucha.”
We’re sure that crew members who are lugging around those giant speakers just can’t wait to tuck into a delicious meal of kale and Kombucha!
By the way, although Katy Perry does not want you eating junk food backstage, if she decides to chow down on McDonalds, you are not allowed to call her out on her hypocrisy.
If you guessed this one correctly back in 2015, good for you! Your reward is a bucket of delicious fried chicken, a large soda, and a chocolate chip cookie. Mmmm!
