Ok, now we've heard it all after Beyoncé reportedly has her own toilet seats flown across the world so she never has to sit on a used one. 

Proving that she really is a Queen, and only a fresh throne will do, Queen Bey’s team have to ensure that she never sits on a toilet seat that has been previously used. Speaking to The Sun a source said “Her tour roadies have seen everything so it’s not a great deal for them, but it does raise a smile from people who happen to catch a glimpse of the branded container.”

Bey must have got tired of requesting new toilet seats in her tour rider as the Daily Star reported in 2013 and just decided to bring her own ones along instead. 

It seems like a bizarre demand by the pop superstar, but from a hygiene point of view, I totally get it. She probably has a separate toilet from husband Jay-Z in her home so why would she want to share with anyone else.?

Of course, the whole thing got us thinking: what are the most crazy demands that the A-Listers have requested in their tour riders? 

Rock band Van Halen requested a bowl filled with M&M’s but all of the brown ones had to be taken out. The specific demand wasn’t just because they were Van halen and could do what they did, but actually a genius business move.

According to Insider “The band's concert rider indeed had a clause saying there could be no brown M&Ms in the backstage area, or the promoter would forfeit the entire show at full price.”

Katy Perry allegedly demands an arrangement of pink fresh flowers. If not available, seasonal white flowers including white orchids, but absolutely no carnations. There’s no clear reason why, guess she just doesn’t like them.

But the most ridiculous rider request has to be from Mariah Carey, the diva has reportedly been known to demand vitamin water to bathe her dogs in and an assistant to dispose of her chewing gum.!
