Flab: SlothB77: Is it possible that Lady Gaga thinks public hair = pubic hair? Or just a typo in the article?Since the article wrote (sic) next to a few of those typos, I would assume it's in the contract.Sin_City_Superhero: It's a stupid way to check for compliance. Instead of attempting to meet your actual needs, now they're wasting time painting manequine pubes pink, or picking brown M&M's out of a bowl. It seems like that time could be better spent shoring up security, or something...In most places, the guy picking out the brown M&Ms will not be same guy making sure there are 10 240v power strips on stage because the band is from Europe, or that they didn't travel with their own grand piano and expect the venue to provide one.
johnnyq: Gosling: *Adele requires in her three-page 2011 rider that concertgoers be asked for a $20 charitable contribution to Sands. If you got comped a ticket, you're expected to donate. Also, boy do they like to get drunk on that bus, although "North American beer is NOT acceptable."She says NA beer is NOT acceptable, but she gives Stella as an example of a top quality European beer./Not that Stella's awful, but still...
highendmighty: Who knew she had a cholesterol problem?

Most of which is better than wife-beater. Go be fat somewhere else Adele.
E_Henry_Thripshaws_Disease: i wanna have sex with a Real Doll w/pink pubic hair
Derwood: Timmy the Tumor: Doesn't the performer have to pay for all the stupid sh*t in the rider?No, but he rider IS negotiable. I found this out when I was working for a new venue. One of our first concerts was Sean Lennon, and when he came into the dressing room, he said "wow, they got us EVERYTHING!"At that point we quickly realized that the rider was a wish list, and a quick call to the tour manager let you know what were the must-haves and what were optional
Lt. Cheese Weasel: A live Anne Margaret look alike covered in pork and beans.Four whole fried chickensWhite toast.A pepsi.
Bored Horde: Only in the case of a concert hall performer, it's an indication that they need to send their people around to inspect every goddamn square inch of wiring, explosives and stage because they have to play that night, and they want to survive the process and maybe even entertain their fans.
dmars: pute kisses like a man: my rider would be:1) (a) get a good bourbon. lots of it. (b) if it's not good enough, i'm drinking the whole bottle and getting ridiculously drunk and it's all going to be an hilarious disaster.2) what town am I in? are you people known for any good food? find the absolute best of your best food and bring it to me. if you are the midwest, just don't give me any of your food, fly some food in, or find someone from new orleans. better yet, contact my mom, cook whatever she thinks I should eat according to her recipe. if the food sucks, see # 1 part B.3) oh yeah, and set up the sound stuff correctly or see # 1 part B.And what are you constituting as Midwestern food?
