Marilyn MansonWe have heard of some strong demands from celebrities and Marilyn Manson is no different requesting that air conditioning is always on full, Gummi Bears should be available along with microwave popcorn and a bottle of Absinthe. However, the most unusual demand is the bald hooker without any teeth.
Lily AllenLilly Allen doesn’t ask for too much, just twelve packets of onion flavoured Monster Munch, a bottle of Jack Daniels, four bottles of champagne and a puppy; for the night only.
Angelina JolieWhen you are a superstar such as Angelina Jolie you have the upper hand over producers who are desperate to cast you for any films. Angelina Jolie took her demands to the next level when asked to make a film in Prague. She demanded the studio give Brad Pitt free helicopter lessons in Prague while she filmed, so that he didn’t get bored. She also got a mansion with a helipad and Brad Pitt’s favourite Bugatti car was shipped in to keep him busy while she was on set all day.
Katy PerryKaty Perry has a six page document which is distributed to the hotels she intends staying at, the limousine companies she is going to use during her stay, the dressing rooms of the set and the drivers of the limousines to ensure her every demand is met without confusion.
The list includes that there are to be white and purple hydrangeas and pink and white roses in her rooms, but there are to be no carnations.
Chauffer’s are not allowed to speak to her or her guests for any reason and they are not allowed to look at her through the rear view mirror.

Iggy PopIggy Pop produces an eighteen page demand document before heading off to a show this includes everything from the lighting and stage set to his dressing room requirements.

Britney SpearsBritney Spears requires a private telephone line that can only be used for outgoing calls in her dressing room; she will fine the studio should it accept incoming calls. She also requires Pop Tarts, Fruit Loops, cable television, two six foot sofas and an odour free carpet.
