Supreme rap diva Nicki Minaj revealed her demands in an interview with Wonderland last year. Among the food items she requires backstage are dried cranberries, raw almonds and 24 bottles of Dasani water (12 at room temperature and 12 on ice). Minaj also demands Snapple, Red Bull, assorted fruit juices, Simply Lemonade, a fruit platter, a cheese platter, a deli tray, three packs of gum, and a salad with tomatoes, cucumbers, green olives, Wishbone Light Italian dressing, Bumble Bee tuna in water and wheat or low-fat crackers.
The "Super Bass" singer does make one exception in her otherwise healthy rider for her favorite food: fried chicken. She demands "lots of wings" in the three 12-piece buckets of "spicy" meat, with "no thighs" allowed.
For her dressing room itself, Minaj requires two dozen pink or white roses, candles with the scent of baked goods, Halls Mentho-lyptus Honey Lemon Throat Cough Drops, contact lens solution with case, two space heaters and a cool mist humidifier. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff
