Beyonce Knowles demands $900 drinking straws on tour
Wellington: Beyonce Knowles has reportedly asked for drinking straws worth 900 dollars on her The Mrs Carter Show World Tour.
According to Australia`s The FIX, the 31-year-old singer forked out 900 dollars for titanium straws, which will be used to drink special alkaline water that is served at exactly 21 degrees, Stuff.co.nz reported.
Beyonce reportedly insists that her crew, from drivers to set riggers, wear only 100 percent pure cotton and has asked for plain off-white walls in her dressing rooms, with a new toilet seat at every event, and red toilet paper.
She has also requested hand-carved ice-ball to suck after every performance to cool her throat and has banned junk food in favour of glass platters of almonds, oatcakes and green-only crudites.
The source said that Beyonce is extremely regimented and is taking everything extremely seriously, so she expects her list of demands to be adhered too and every detail be taken in.
The insider added that working so hard and with the toll the travel takes on her body in addition to the intense shows; she feels that her requests aren`t too much to ask for as she wants to ensure everything goes to plan.
