Pop singer Rihanna doesn’t like sequins, but she does require animal print decorations (preferably Cheetah or Leopard) backstage in her dressing room, along with candles, flowers, mirrors and “deeply cleaned” toilets and showers. All of this and more is revealed in her tour rider for the upcoming U.S. leg of her highly unsuccessful “Last Girl on Earth” Tour, due to kick off next month in Auburn, Washington. Check out what the rider says below:

A six-foot couch needs to be “White, Cloth, Plush (No leather)” and “wide enough for her to stretch out on and sometime take a nap.”

Animal print throw pillows (“Cheetah, Leopard”) cannot have sequins.

Since Rihanna’s arena digs are often locker rooms normally occupied by basketball and hockey players, the spaces need to be spruced up with “Icy Blue Chiffon” placed atop drapery and “Archipelago Black Forest Candles.”

The bathroom, of course, must be “spotless,” and the toilet has to be deep cleaned before the star’s arrival.

Rihanna, 22, also requires a large throw rug (plush, with an animal print) in her dressing room. The rug, her rider notes, “must be CLEAN, as she will walk on it barefoot.” Though perhaps shower slippers or flip-flops are advisable considering the sweaty occupants who normally fill these spaces.
