Grimes Publishes Her Tour Rider, Demands Cute Puppies Backstage

Canadian powerhouse Grimes has shared her tour rider online, with the Oblivion hitmaker revealing to the world that she wants her backstage goodies to be green and eco-friendly, as well as having a cute puppy provided for her to play with pre-show.

The 25-year-old demands that all items provided must be reusable rather than disposable, issuing a blanket ban on styrofoam, plastic and foil. She also wants all food to be organic and local when possible, and under no circumstances are you to give her bottled water or candy.

And as for the puppy, well, that’s a special request from the artist in her own words:

“if possible, one cute bulldog, french bulldog, pug or pomeranian (or other cute animal, such as a chinchilla or a pekanese) to visit and hang out but who gets to leave before too much loud noise is heard so that he or she does hurt their ears. it is important that if said animal visits, they have a safe home to return to. lol.”

LOL, indeed. Grimes, real name Claire Boucher, said she published her rider because she’s “obsessed with reading other peoples riders” and thought hers may be of interest to her fans. Surely this make Grimes the anti-Beyoncé – Mrs Jay-Z allegedly demands $900 worth of titanium drinking straws backstage at her shows. We think we’d rather have the puppy.
