We all know our favourite musicians have their little demands now and again but it seems M.I.A thinks she's in a league of her own.
A copy of her rider for backstage areas at gigs has caused a stir. Among the usual selection of mixed nuts and cheese, M.I.A also asked for "Three female extras for each show, each between 20 and 25 years old” on her 2011 tour.
To celebrate musicians and their diva demands (or not so much) , Gigwise has put together a gallery of the most outrageous (and the not so) riders in music history.
From the high demands of Prince and his plastic covered to food to Nirvana and their simple macaroni and cheese.
The list also includes the likes of Beyonce, Paul McCartney, Ozzy Osbourne, Robbie Williams and Morrissey.
