Carey's Rider Reveals Modest Demands

Rumours of Mariah Carey's outrageous backstage demands have been silenced by the publication of a recent rider which shows the star's modest list of requirements at her gigs.
The pop superstar has long been subjected to gossip about her orders before every appearance, sparked by a lavish list of demands published by several years ago. It included a bottle of Cristal Champagne, bendy straws, and tea made with a specific brand of mineral water.
Tabloid reports about her alleged demands have become increasingly far-fetched in recent years - she was said to have asked for 20 white kittens and 100 white doves when she opened a shopping mall in London last year (09).
But a new rider, also obtained by, reveals a simple list of requirements, including three bottles of chilled Chardonnay, a variety of soft drinks, fruit and cheese platters and low-fat pretzels.
The only lavish demands in the documents are two vases of white roses, Jo Malone candles, and furniture in plain colours: "no busy patterns, black, dark grey, cream, dark pink are all fine."
The rider only includes three requests for her band's dressing room - a bowl of fresh fruit, a can of mixed nuts and one bowl of tortilla chips.
