As she readied for her 2010 tour, pop starRihanna made sure the prepping area of every concert venue felt like home -- which is, apparently, a leopard-print haven littered with Archipelago Black Forest candles that cost $29 a pop.
According to the pop star's tour rider, obtained by the Smoking Gun, Rihanna's tastes were pretty particular. They included: a six-foot couch -- plush, white and no leather, and big enough for her to stretch out on for a nap -- six floor lamps with dimmers, throw pillows and a "clean" rug in animal print and the aforementioned candles.
The singer also had specific instructions for how she liked her flowers arranged. "Small, clear, square vases with White Tulips, if in season -- No Foliage (2nd choice: White Casablanca Lilies no foliage, 3rd choice: White Freesia no foliage)," the rider said.
The document ended with an all-caps, bold, underlined, weirdly phrased declaration about Rihanna's sanitary standards:
"BATHROOMS MUST BE SPOTLESS. PLEASE DEEP CLEAN TOILET & SHOWER ONE"
