For musicians, concert riders are an important part of their contracts with performance venues. They are able to demand everything from specific types of food to the color of the walls in their dressing room.
Stars like Jennifer Lopez are notorious for requesting an all-white decor while the group Van Halen wanted the brown M&Ms removed from their candy dishes. The more absurd the request, the better.

Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss is very picky when it comes to her fried chicken. According to TMZ, the “No Scrubs” songwriter wants only Popeye’s served in her dressing room.
In fact, the rider reads, “Please do not substitute for KFC or Churches, we know the difference.”
The reality star is currently on tour with her musical, A Mother’s Love, which was featured on Season 6 of the Bravo TV show.
Even though she wants only Popeye’s chicken, she still wants something from KFC — coleslaw.
She also has specific requests for the bathroom, including a new toilet seat that must be installed in front of the road manager or her assistant so they know the work was done. Burruss will only use Cottonelle toilet paper and she needs Dove soap to wash with.
The former Xscape group member also has quite a few transportation needs as well. Burruss requires a black Mercedes-Benz Sprinter to tool around in, golf carts with umbrellas in case of rain and a police escort to avoid traffic jams.
As the rider states, “Under no circumstance shall Kandi be delayed arriving at or departing” from the performance venue.
If all of the requests seem absurd, think again. TMZ was able to confirm with the TV personality’s reps that the contract is indeed authentic.
