Justin Bieber Rider

 

SEPTEMBER 30—Turns out Justin Bieber’s tour rider is as squeaky clean as the 16-year-old pop star himself.

No booze or hashish or condoms. The singer just wants concert promoters to outfit his dressing room with mixed nuts, potato chips, herbal teas, some Vitamin Water, and deli, vegetable, and fruit platters, according to this excerpt from Bieber's 2010 tour rider.

Young Bieberphiles may also be interested to know that the performer’s candy requests revolve around gummy treats: Swedish Fish (when the singer is in the U.S.) and Big Foot (for Canadian gigs).

The singer also requires one Vicks Personal Steam Inhaler, Purell antibacterial soap, and an assortment of plain white t-shirts and “lo-rise” socks. We’ll assume that the “XS” ones are for the pint-sized Bieber.

Grub destined for the performer needs to be covered with plastic, and the singer’s people request that promoters “exercise caution with easily spoiled items such as mayonnaise.”

Bieber’s backstage requirements are in keeping with the overly reasonable demands of other young stars like Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, and Vanessa Hudgens, all of whom have yet to show Lopezlike symptoms. (3 pages)
