Katy Perry and John Mayer reportedly require a few luxury items when they visit area hotels. However, it’s really not as bad as some websites would have you believe.
When you take a moment to look over tour and hotel riders from other celebrities, the stuff that Mayer and Perry demand during their treks around the globe aren’t altogether outrageous. They might sound a little demanding to some folks, but it’s fairly reasonable considering the amount of time they spend away from home.
“John and Katy get VIP treatment wherever they go. It’s usually all the same items for TV shows, backstage at concerts and hotels,” an anonymous source recently told Life & Style magazine.
The insider continued, “John and Katy’s suite at the Carlyle Hotel in NYC during their stay was one of the nicest rooms at the hotel. It is around $5,000 a night.”
While Katy Perry’s list is a little lengthy, John Mayer’s demands aren’t exactly over-the-top. In addition to an $80 bottle of Lagavulin 16, the singer-songwriter also wants a few cans of Cherry Coke for the fridge, room temperature bottled water, and a fruit tray with bananas. That’s pretty much it for Mayer.
Although Perry’s list is a little longer than her boyfriend’s, it’s really not exceedingly over-the-top. Outside of some healthy food and an electric kettle to brew her tea, Perry wants a director’s chair, a wardrobe steamer, and a full-length mirror. Compared to most celebritiy riders, this stuff is actually quite tame.
