As BET gives Nicki Minaj the cold shoulder, news of her tour rider has surfaced.  What's a tour rider?  Well, it's basically a list of needs and what's a artist asks or demands to have when they arrive at a venue to perform.  Some artists are worse than others, because if they're needs are not met....they will not go on stage or they tend to have temper tantrums.

At any rate, her rider doesn't appear to be to over the top.  In a recent interview with Wonderland Magazine, Nicki was happy to open up about her backstage demands and said that her biggest request is food.  Nicki's rider is as follows;  2 dozen pink or white roses, a silverware set, 2 space heaters, a humidifier, one gallon of Simply Lemonade, 12 cans of Red Bull, scrambled egg whites, turkey bacon, toast, Belgian waffles, strawberries, juices, a large fruit platter for breakfast, a cheese platter, and deli tray, spicy fried chicken no thighs and lots of wings.  Finally, she allegedly likes the back stage area to smell like something's baking, so she likes a lot of scented candles as well.  Whew.........that's all.
