M.I.A. Will Not Tour Without Assorted Olives

+

The Smoking Gun specializes in two things: obtaining celebrity mugshots, and getting their hands on tour riders, those always-entertaining list of demands musicians make when they take their show on the road. Today brings us an example of the latter, and it’s especially topical. M.I.A., who’s been newsy lately because she just managed to be one of the few people to ever upstage Madonna, didn’t do a ton of touring last year, but when she did, girl needed her 8-foot folding tables.

You can see the full list over at The Smoking Gun, but some of the highlights include the aforementioned tables, a container of dried mangoes, a container of organic dried blueberries, a container of quality assorted olives, a small bag of gummy sweets, a bottle of Patron Silver, a bottle of absinthe, a pack of Extra chewing gum, and in a nice gesture that we especially appreciate, a phone line, specifically for press phoners.
