Kanye West’s Outrageous Demand Before BBC Performance
Oh, the perks of being a celebrity.
From Beyonce demanding to keep her dressing room at 78 degrees to Rihanna asking for animal-print throw rugs with specific candles, backstage celebrity requests are not uncommon. But HipHollywood has learned of one recent request that will boggle your mind.
During a recent appearance on BBC’s Later … with Jools Holland, Kanye West reportedly asked for his dressing room carpet to be ironed because it was too … bumpy for him. But it didn’t stop there. He later requested that everything in his dressing room be white. The rapper and new dad also made sure to make sure at least half of the dressing rooms were assigned to his entourage.
“Everybody knew Kanye’s reputation for being a handful, but nobody had heard of a request for a carpet to be ironed before,” a source told the Sun.
But, West’s performance of “Bound 2” was reportedly a hit. Even Adele tweeted about the rapper’s performance, writing, “God I love Kanye so much. Later with Jools is incredible tonight!”
