No carnations! In Katy Perry's extensive 45-page rider she gets specific about her florals. Perry prefers white and purple hydrangeas, pink and white roses, and peonies. If those aren't available a seasonal selection of white flowers and orchids are fine but "absolutely no carnations." She also gets specific about her furniture. The dressing room needs to be draped in cream or soft pink with two cream-colored egg chairs. One of those chairs has to have a footstool. The room must also be furnished with a "Perspex modern-style" coffee table, a pair of French ornate-style floor lamps, and don't forget about a fridge with a glass door.

Nicki Minaj loves her booty! That's why when she's on tour she takes good care of it with four rolls of "good quality" toilet paper – Quilted Northern or Charmin only. Don't forget the baby wipes! The singer also loves to snack and requests an entire buffet – three 12-piece buckets of spicy fried chicken (no thighs), two strip steaks (well done), and Belgian waffles with syrup, butter, and strawberries.  The room should also be stocked with juice, tea, Red Bull, and 24 bottles of assorted Snapple.

B*tch better have my Cheetos!

Most importantly, she must have both Flamin' Hot and regular Cheetos. Rihanna was quick to defend her varied menu, "I just like to be prepared. You never know what mood you're gonna be in that day."

Xtina's sweet tooth wins out in the end though. Chocolate chip cookies and Oreos are also on the list.
