[Blind Gossip] This music star was at last night’s Golden Globe Awards. Here’s a weird story we heard about him yesterday from an industry insider.
During his last tour, he performed at a large venue. His rider was even more demanding than most artists.
He insisted that everything backstage had to be painted or draped in a certain color, and that all personnel had to wear that same color. When one of the staff wore a shirt of the wrong shade, that person was ordered to go change his shirt or be dismissed.
The rider also specified that none of the venue’s staff were allowed to leave until the artist himself left the premises. However, instead of leaving after his performance, the artist demanded a taped copy of the entire evening’s performances. He then holed up in his dressing room watching the tape for several hours. Over one hundred hungry and tired staff members were held captive at the venue until after 2:00 a.m. while this artist sat in his dressing room, by himself, watching himself for hours!
