Azealia Banks SMARTENS UP About TWITTER & Hands That Account Over To Her Label + Beyonce's "INSANE" Tour Rider REVEALED...But Are We Mad About What's On It?

Despite dropping the "Yung Rapunxel" video a few weeks ago, rapper Azealia Banks has been suspiciously silent.  Find out why she's been off social media inside and see some of Beyonce's crazy demands for her "The Mrs. Carter Show" World Tour rider.

There was a time when we'd hear about controversial rapper Azealia Banks beefing with someone at least once a month.  From Iggy Azelea and T.I., to Angel Haze and A$AP Rocky, Young Rapunxel was never at a loss for words...until now.  

Though the "Liquorice" rapper dazzled on the blue carpet for the Ferragamo "Launch Of L'Icona" this week (shown above), fans will notice that there have been very few tweets from the rapper. We've now discovered that she's taken a page from Chris Brown's public relations playbook and turned over her Twitter account to her record label. And in addition to the silence, her debut abum, Broke With Expensive Taste, has been pushed back again.

The fiesty rapper has been in the studio with Frank Ocean's producer Om’Mas Keith. “I was very pleased to find out that she was an amazing artist, an artist’s artist,” Keith told Rap-Up TV. “The stuff that I worked on is very refreshing and creative.”

Maybe now...she'll have time to focus on creating a hit album and not stirring up trouble.


And in other music news....

If you plan on booking Beyonce & her Mrs. Carter Show, get ready for a list of demands fit for a queen.  Thanks to Australia's newspaper, The Telegraph, we've been clued in on a few of Queen Bey's demands, which some critics are calling "insane."  But if you've ever seen Mrs. Carter live, we think she deserves WHATEVER she wants.  So far, we've learned she's demanding the most.  And we kinda love it.

  • $900 worth of titanium drinking straws for her dressing rooms (used to drink a special alkaline water that's served at exactly 21 degrees!)
  • Everyone in the crew must be dressed in clothes made of 100% pure cotton (to prevent her from having an allergic reaction)
  • The dressing room must be painted off-white
  • Every toilet seat (in each venue) must be brand new
  • Bathrooms are stocked only with red toilet paper
  • A hand-carved ice-ball (to cool her throat after performances)
  • Glass platters of almonds, oatcakes and green-only crudités (no junk food allowed)

And for her 2013 performance at the Super Bowl, she supposedly demanded Blue Ivy's $22,000 cedar crib be shipped from New York to New Orleans, and her personal dressing room be stocked with $6,000 worth of imported cigars and alcohol for Jay-Z.

The source defended Bey's demands saying,

"She's extremely regimented and is taking everything extremely seriously, so she expects her list of demands to be adhered too and every detail be taken in.  Working so hard and with the toll the travel takes on her body in addition to the intense shows, she feels that her requests aren't too much to ask for as she wants to ensure everything goes to plan."

AGAIN....whatever Beyonce wants....Beyonce should get.  And everyone will deal....





That rider is so fake. I

That rider is so fake. I cannot believe you people r that stupid to believe this crap.

If I'm working my tail off, bringing a venue thousands of dollars, I would have me a list of demands too. Her's isn't that bad compared to some riders I've seen.

Those demands don't seem that

Those demands don't seem that crazy to me. I totally understand about the toilet seats though!! LOL!! But red toilet paper? I didn't even know they made that!!

SO and WHAT about what this

SO and WHAT about what this lady demands on a tour. People want her to be basic because she's a black woman at the top of her game, but had this been J.Lo, or Madonna they wouldn't say a peep about a rider....NEXT ARTICLE

It's not that bad but why

It's not that bad but why does the ice have to be 'hand carved'? And what if someone on the staff is allergic to cotton? They can't work that day? I think some of these stars demand things because they know they can. That's how they start to develop a god complex.

Um I think the list is reasonable for Beyonce. Nothing insane about it. moving right along. the haters are so pressed.

The rider is always insane

The rider is always insane becuz u can ask for WHATEVER you want, but the amount of money the venue will receive by far exceeds what they have to get Beyonce or any celebrity, thats why they are always adhered to. Its all about $$$ and Beyonce brings in the $$$$

Red toilet paper? This ish

Red toilet paper? This ish sounds cuh-razy! Don't know if I believe that. The other demands seem pretty reasonable for a celebrity of her caliber. If I could have every toilet seat I sat on be brand new, I definitely would. Have you been in a women's bathroom recently? They are nastier than the MEN's bathroom! With the money she's bringing into these venues with sold-out concerts, she should get what she wants. Hell, she's pulling her weight and doing her job so the venue shouldn't have a problem doing theirs.

I agree with you that one.

I agree with you that one. Red toilet paper is just a yeast infection waiting to happen. And yes some women are so nasty. It took me years to start using a public restroom and i do not touch any handles without a paper towel.

I've seen worse riders, but

I've seen worse riders, but some of these "necessities" just don't make sense. Like someone said before, how does forcing everyone to wear 100% cotton prevent her from having an allergic reaction when the stuff she and her dancers wear isn't cotton? I doubt red toilet paper is that expensive, but really? You're wiping your behind and it's going to end up in the toilet to be flushed away for eternity so why even bother? And maybe I'm wrong, but I've always been told that room temperature water is way better for the body and vocal cords than ice cold water. I do like the no junk food policy though, gotta keep the body in tip-top shape!
CheyPie's picture

I agree, girl. She didn't go

I agree, girl. She didn't go all J-Lo and ask for white roses and white candles and white everything at every single venue. And yes, room temperature water is much better for you than ice cold water. Your body has to do more work to warm ice cold water up to body temperature.

Hmmm....It's Noway They Can Make Red Toilet Paper Without Red Dye. Um Sure Dye Would Be Harmful On The KoodaKat. I Hope This Shyt Is Fabricated.

i sincerely hope she wasn't thinking bout sitting on public toilet seats...my mama taught me since I was a kid to SQUAT unless I was at home..

Why does the crew have to

Why does the crew have to wear 100% cotton, when the bullshit she wears isn't 100% cotton. If she didn't have an allergic reaction to whatever that dry ass material that she wears on her head, then everything else should be just fine. Allergies is just an excuse, there's more to that...... and I guess she thinks that if she wipes her ass with red toilet paper, then her ass would taste like red velvet. (rolls eyes smdh) Why do you need a hand carved ice ball. So over the top and ridiculous. Maybe if you'd stop the unnecessary grunting and screaming, your throat wouldn't need as much care, you think. (again I repeat) Hand carved ice ball? ......as if a cup of ice wouldn't do the same and they can lie about putting new toilet seats on. Grab a toilet seat cover and keep it moving......you ain't living there. Oh Bey.............

Bey is a witch who does not take care of her own child and uses that Blu Baby for photo oops. she should be grateful that anyone would even hire her non talented ass.

I don't think her list of

I don't think her list of demands are insane. New toilet seats, drinking straws, ice cubes... Those aren't even worth taking a second look at, give it to her. Well except the red toilet paper. That's weird but it Beyoncé, whatever she wants, she gets.

I ain't mad. Alot of those

I ain't mad. Alot of those things make sense, like everyone wearing cotton to avoid allergies, fresh ice for her throat, new toilet seats. A few things do seem extreme but hey-when you're a star and you make millions on tour (and when your show brings 6 figures+ to the places that host your shows) you can ask for WHATEVER you want to!

that rider is nowhere near

that rider is nowhere near insane, but where do you find red toilet paper and isnt the dye bad for you? i know they sell black toilet paper on some sites for asian products but never seen red. this is what confidentiality agreements were made for. ppl will tell any information that they are made privy to just to stir up some mess.
