White leather couches, black satin drapes, Jameson whiskey and organic foods were among the demands made by Lady Gaga during her Monster's Ball tour. Details of Gaga's tour rider -- the list of backstage demands that must be fulfilled for each stop -- were recently divulged on the website Celebuzz. According to the website, the "Bad Romance" singer requested during her two-and-a-half year tour that her dressing room be decorated in "glam rock" fashion, with silver satin walls, white leather couches, black satin drapes and posters of famous rock stars such as David Bowie, Queen and Elton John. She also requested that a mannequin with "puffy pink pubic hair" be placed in her dressing room, for reasons not known. In addition, Gaga requested that her backstage bathroom be decked out with lavender-colored bath towels, hand towels, washcloths, hand soap, body wash and face soap. She also required sea-foam loofah sponges, a candle and fresh roses -- in lavender, of course. When it came to food, Gaga aimed for healthy, requesting organic teas and milk, organic tortilla chips, sprouted grain tortillas, peanut butter with no more than four grams of sugar, tuna and Activa yogurt. But she allowed for a couple vices, specifically "quality white wine" and Jameson whiskey. According to Celebuzz, the details from the rider appeared in court documents as part of the six-hour deposition Gaga gave in a lawsuit involving her former assistant, Jennifer O'Neill. O'Neill is suing the singer for $300,000 for unpaid overtime pay. In the deposition, obtained by the New York Post, Gaga dismissed O'Neill, whom she once called "my best friend from NY since I was 19," as an undeserving "hood rat" who "thinks she's just like the queen of the universe." "I'm the queen of the universe every day," Gaga was quoted as saying. Apparently, she's not the only one who thinks that way. Click through to see more outrageous demands made by other stars.
