London: Pop diva Lady Gaga bans ice from her concert venues as she is terrified of fans pelting her with the cubes during her show.

A list of the 25-year-old singer`s eccentric backstage demands from show organisers has emerged online in a leaked dressing room rider.

The `Paparazzi` hitmaker`s backstage requests include banning ice from all concert venue bars half an hour before she takes the stage in case rowdy fans throw it during the show, reported a website.

The document, obtained by The Smoking Gun website, also disclosed the singer`s healthy eating habits, revealing she snacks on smoothies, dried fruit, natural yoghurt and low-fat cereals, while her meals generally consist of "grilled chicken breast with rice, healthy white fish with salad".

Gaga also insists on drinking organic ginger and lemongrass tea, which is listed as "very important", as well as Fuze Slenderize drinks and Red Bull Light.

The rider also details the pop star`s super-strict security system, revealing she travels with her own group of bodyguards called the Lady Gaga Advance Security.
