Backstage With Bolton: What Mike Likes

We're pretty sure that singer Michael Bolton is a soulless no-talent whose success is attributable to a pact with the devil himself. But we are damn sure about one thing: the "entertainer" is very particular about his soft drinks and dry cleaning. Here's part of a standard contract rider Bolton sends to promoters staging his concerts. The document details the performer's requirements regarding food, drink, and laundry services. Particularly disturbing is the last page, which demands an "(African American or ethnics/mixed) gospel choir" to perform during the show. Imagine if the follicly-challenged crooner had insisted on a"Jewish accountant" or an "Italian-American bodyguard." (7 pages)
