Celebrity Tour Riders

    Janet Jackson's rider clearly states that she will only accept "fresh, clean, crushed or cubed ice... NO ICE FISH." Supposedly it has happened before.

    Clay Aiken isn't able to consume any nuts, mushrooms, mint, coffee, chocolate or shellfish while on tour.

    Mary J. Blige refuses to have any dairy or pork in her dressing room. But she does want her place stocked with FIJI water (no other kind), tub of red vine licorice, Cinnamon fresh Mentos and a tea set with condiments.

    Comedian Carrot Top prohibits one dessert from his dressing room. His rider reads, "Please No Carrot Cake--It's Still Not Funny!"

    Despite Marilyn Manson's creepy demeanor, the musician doesn't have many odd requests. Actually, he prefers having gummi bears, mini chocolates, Doritos, and 2% milk.

    Singer Alicia Keys will only eat fish and vegetables on tour and won't allow chicken, beef or pork in her dressing room.

    Even though Queen Latifah travels with her own chef on tour, she makes sure to note in her tour rider that "no pork can be in the food or vicinity" of the singer. And her request for Kentucky Fried Chicken is solely an appetizer... not a dinner option.

    Foo Fighters' rider is a masterpiece, citing the venue cannot give them recycled cereal from the last performer, one jar of pirate booty (that isn't Johnny Depp's), among other requests like not serving gassy soups that will make their roadies fart.

    Singer John Mayer needs his Lucky Charms (and 2 bottles of Original Crazy Glue... hopefully not for consuming.)

    'American Idol' singer, Rueben Studdard likes his southern food and needs a large bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken in his dressing room.
