We know celebrities are used to getting what they want and when they want it! Over the years, we have seen a number of crazy celebrity riders, with crazy demands. Now it seems we have the riders of hip hop stars and business moguls Jay-Z and Kanye West.
Now, according to TMZ, Jay-Z’s main demands have mostly to do with his daughter, Blue Ivy. For starters, the entire suite must be childproofed with all corners, sharp edges, and electrical outlets all covered, which is smart on his part.
Beyond the Blue Ivy demands, Jay-Z insists on 71 degree temp. The hotel staff must provide three $80 Mayan tuberose-scented candles. Also staff is told not do vacuuming near his room and if they have any common sense, staff should not ask for concert tickets unless they want to “avoid embarrassment.” Finally, Jay Z wants plenty of Ace of Spades champagne. but of course since he owns the company, he cannot be charged … very smart.
As for Kanye West, his celebrity rider is a little different. Now according to TMZ, Kanye has no demands for his daughter North West, but he does have specific geometric preferences, like vases must be cylindrical. Kanye requires the staff to hunt down a Genelecs 1031a speaker … which was discontinued a decade ago. Plus, he likes his floss minty, his cereal Kashi Go Lean and his towels black.
If that’s not enough, Kanye has a grocery list where he requires 13 bottles totaling around $3,200, including 3 bottles of Paradis Hennessy.
It’s good to be Jay-Z and Kanye West.
