Justin Timberlake’s Tame Backstage Demands

Justin Timberlake’s backstage rider demands have been revealed.

The heartthrob singer asked for Beano anti-gas tablets to be flown over from the US as part of his rider for the London leg of his FutureSex/LoveSounds tour.

Timberlake, who says the tablets help him digest food, has also requested two dressing rooms, to be kept at a constant 22 degrees Celsius, and continuous supply of Hershey chocolate bars.

This is not the best of rider requests. The most infamous is Van Halen, who wanted no brown M&Ms in a packet.

Prince demands a doctor to give him a vitamin B injection before each show.

Marilyn Manson is my kind of rider, requesting “every room he enters to be chilled to a deathly freeze with air-conditioning on full, a never-ending supply of Coca Cola and a bottomless bucket of ice. Add to that Haribo gummi bears, mini chocolates, Doritos, soy milk, assorted Kool Aid-sweetened, Hanson’s cherry vanilla and microwave popcorn.” I like this one because it is so sweet compared to his stage persona.

But my absolute favourite has to be Iggy Pop, who once requested seven dwarves, and broccoli to throw in the bin because he hates it so much.

Justin’s demands are the latest report of his cheeky behaviour, which has included spitting and throwing garbage at Swedish fans. Is Cameron Diaz starting a smear campaign?
