Jay-Z's High End Demands

Jay-Z's concert rider has been released by the University of Arizona.  I guess they're still pissy they pretty much lost out on $900k bringing him and Kelly Clarkson to the school to perform and didn't even make their money back.  Now I know a lot of big stars' riders also include their "people's" requests, but damn.  Jay and Co. asked this school for a Maybach, tons of alcohol equaling thousands of dollars, "Good Quality" peanut butter and jelly, Malboro Lights (that's just too easy of a joke), and lots of other things.  Too bad it's University policy that they can't provide liquor or half million dollar cars.  Here's a copy thanks to The Smoking Gun:

So what would happen if the dressing room was at 73 degrees and not 72 as requested?  Just wondering....

Jaime: What a lot of y’all

Jaime: What a lot of y’all are failing to realize is that this rider is used at any concert that he has. Every promoter gets the rider and crosses out the things that they can not accommodate. So, with this being a university, the maybach was crossed out and all the alcohol requests were crossed out. Then they send it back to the artist’s people and they initial it saying that they agree. So, you can make all the demands you want, but if they can’t do it, then they can’t do it.And to all the people that are saying he should go out and get his own stuff, when is he going to do that? Before or after the sound check? Between the airport and the hotel? That just doesn’t make any sense. ditto...We tried to book J.Lo (back when she was at her "prime") at my school and her rider included white doves, Avian water at a certain temperature, white scented candles that cost too effin much and that her dressing room be all white...among a HOST of other things. Where the hell were we going to get white doves from?! ::blank stare:: Chick can't even sing! Needless to say, we couldn't afford her price anyway, but clearly she was over the top. Jay-Z's rider isn't the worst out there...a little ridiculous to us, but hey...when you make millions of dollars, you can throw your weight around a little I guess.

aint nothing new Nas

aint nothing new Nas performed at my school a while back and was a bit over the top..asking for brand new china and sh**. They need to understand that schools have budgets! And that money going to you its to give the students a little something before the end of the year. I mean hell most school could've used that for more scholarships or grants. Celebrities like this make me want to slap the crap out of them, so inconsiderate.

Ha, I was wrong about my

Ha, I was wrong about my Kelly Clarkson comment about her only wanting bottled water and wine, I apologise, I thought I read that somewhere. But, here is her actual tour rider.....c a diff? She's a pretty big star her self man, and she isn't being all redic like J-Z. NOT cool of him at all. Man needs to come down to earth!

Jay-z youa re so wack, and I

Jay-z youa re so wack, and I wish you would not bring out any more albums. Seriously 72 degrees why? Also why do you want college students to use their tuition money to fund your alcohol and maybach. A simple SUV would do and you could have brought the alcohol yourself. That's why the concert didn't sell. Jay youa re tired!!!

Jay tries to make everybody

Jay tries to make everybody think he is so gangsta, but as you can see from that rider, he is a spoiled lil bitch who thinks 750K is not enough money.

With each page I read the

With each page I read the word "Jackasses" kept dancing in my head! LOL This is REALLY sad to see. I agree, for this type of retarded demands. Include the cost of all this CRAP in your the cost of tyour cost and have your own "Jay-z" staff get all your nonsense. Maybe they should have asked Trick daddy to perform, because "Trick...Loves da kids!!" LMAO

HELLO.... This is for a

HELLO.... This is for a college, not a nite club or a vacation spot... Dude, do the concert for those kids who pay for your records that put u where u are today... a maybach if the college had that type of money they would not b raising money with the show.... This is why us ole school kats dont support these artist today...Jay what you need all this to be on stage for probly 35-45 minutes. Come on dude....

Sean Carter is a poser and

Sean Carter is a poser and so is his wig wearing beard , LOL. So non of this is a surprise . Non of it. He's a high paid employee and REAL business men make major paper off him and beyonce. They dont even own their dayum images. I mean really a 44 year old rapping? lol. YEAH OK! . I'm so done. This is what our kids look up 2? Clowns that RAP about their borrowed lives. lol WOOO SAAA! Sean is not cash rich at all. He owes major people and has major bills. That is why his ass ustill rapping. Him and the other Sean 2nd name John. Fing clowns.

These demands were

These demands were ridiculous, along with his fee of $750,000 tp perform. That's why they didn't make any money. The other 4 acts combined only earned $250,000. I know Kelly Clarksons tour rider was for bottled water, and a bottle of Chardonay. They ought to stick with the little people, that haven't let stardom GO TO THEIR HEAD!! SCREW J-Z! He ain't worth it!

LOL .... SMH if this is true

LOL .... SMH if this is true that's a bit over the top ...Oh well there are more important things for us to worry about( Poverty,Unemployment, Hunger, Teen Violence..etc ),then to complain about a show I'm not even going to :)

Beyonce honing her skills

Beyonce honing her skills in the diva-demand routine!: London, Nov 15: It seems Beyonce Knowles is following in the footsteps of fellow singer Mariah Carey, as far as diva-demands are concerned.‘The Crazy In Love’ singer shocked organizers of a British gig by asking for an unlimited supply of Pepsi cola and a two-man “love seat”.Beyoncé’s demands didn’t end here, as she stunned organizers further when she ordered her dressing room be heated to exactly 78 degrees Fahrenheit to maintain her voice, before her performance at the BBC Chart Show Live in Brighton on Sunday.“Beyoncé wants to make sure her vocal chords are in tip-top condition so she needs the temperature to be just right,” the Mirror quoted a source, as saying.The other items the pop superstar requested were: boxes of Honeynut Cheerios cereal and a supply of turkey sandwiches. Um. One Maybach cost more than ALL of that stuff combined.

lll's picture

If this is true, it is

If this is true, it is completely indefensible. First of all, all of the assistants and managers work for JAY-Z. Get control of your people or bear the consequences of their actions. They act in his interest. Second, a Maybach? Really? What the hell kind of argument is, "Leave Jay-z alone. Mariah’s or Beyonce demands are way worser. Stop the hate." There is so much wrong with this statement. Just because someone is worse than Jay-Z does not justify his or his people's actions. This rider is pure insanity and if people have a problem with it they are not haters. Also, "worser." Girl, bye.

Umm this ish is going too far

Umm this ish is going too far he needs to stay his ass at home so he can have it his way instead of trying to rip off the school. Hell this is why he's rich he's not spending his money for life's luxuries. I just wish him & Beyonce would go take a break together at the same time. I used to be really big fans of both but they've over exposed themselves. Everybody needs to be out the limelight at some point shits just unhealthy.

Joja86: That is FREAKIN

Joja86: That is FREAKIN ridiculous!!! Artists are out of control especially since they’re getting publicity, can get their charity proceeds,etc. My school tried to book Trey Songz and folks wanted $20k for a short set (including travel expenses when he was already going to be nearby performing the day before!). They have to understand you’re doing it for a school organization, we don’t even have that much (regardless of the school’s name)! We have our own expenses to do, student rules to abide by,etcA freakin Maybach? Are you serious? I'm pretty sure the lines were crossed out over the Maybach. And the alcohol. I mean, if they couldn't afford him, why would they pay and get him? WHY?!?! They want someone to blame for their bad investment. They are trying to blackmail him into return his paycheck, hoping that people like you will rally on their side, and he'll just say give in. I say no. That's not how contracts work. I did what i said I was going to do, and you want to renig on your part, NO. UofA is the one who failed to consider all the risks (and not making your money back is a HIGH HIGH risk with concerts)

why are you people fronting.

why are you people fronting. Half of those things are for his team, and the people who set up the equipment for when he performs, plus some entourage. When you go to work you expect ac, a water fountain, etc (stuff you don't need). Why the heck can't he expect some shyt? Are you seriously asking he pay extraordinary amounts of money to carry 20 plus people over to another State so he can perform, what working person does that? Yes it might be more than average, but EVERYBODY asks for what they feel they deserve. You could survive on less probably, but you require more pay than that because you took your behind to school and value more than that. I don't think I've ever heard one person say I'd rather this $35k a year job over this $100k one because really I don't need it.
